    Arm launches "laptop-class" Cortex-A76 CPU

    And the Arm Mali-G76 with 30 per cent better performance and efficiency than the G72.

    Article keeps mentioning A57 instead of A76.

    I read elsewhere that this CPU can run 32 bit application code but not OS kernel code. The move away from 32 bits has started!

    Apparently there is an ARM based Macbook in the works:

    Those rumours have been around for so long. I suspect Apple cores are already faster than this A76 though, so I think the rumours keep popping up because it sort of makes sense.

    I presume these cores are more aimed at consoles, chromebooks and VR headsets. My wife is loving her A72 based Android tablet, the extra grunt compared to her old Atom based tablet certainly helps.

    Windows has been on every major CPU architecture out there at some point, but it always gets dropped by MS after a few years so I can't see anyone trusting them enough to develop Windows hardware.

    Apple cores are quicker single-threaded and tend to be aimed at that opposed to a move to multi-threaded performance. Samsung has also done this with the last couple of Exynos processors because you can see the performance straight away under many circumstances using iOS and Android. This is one reason why battery life hasn't jumped as much as many had hoped with the move to smaller process nodes as the cpu's are still running high frequencies most of the time. Apple even moved to a co-processor to help with this
