    Arm takes wraps off first Armv9 solutions for consumer devices

    Arm Cortex-X2 targets laptops, and the Cortex-A710 performance core replaces the Cortex-A78.

    Ah, the Arm A710 not to be confused with the Arm 710 that powered my RiscPC 25 years ago. Looks like Nvidia's product naming/numbering team is already hard at work at ARM, and the deal hasn't even been done yet!

    Thought they'd go A80/A60, but A710/A510 works as well. No A310 Cortex A35 replacement?

    They have also copied Canon too,ie,A series is range of digital compacts which started 20 years ago. So you have Canon Powershots called the A710,A510,A80,A60,etc.

    Think I had an A70. Seldom used it, but then it developed a fault years after the warranty ran.
    Seemed it was intrinsic to the CCD (think it was made by Sony). And Canon offered a repair service for all the effected units even when the warranty had run out years before. Great service, unlike those Nvidia chancers with their millions of solder defect parts.

    As for Acorn RISC Machines (or whatever ARM stands for these days), good to see that they little of big.LITTLE is finally getting an updated but it's embarrassing that the new little are still nearly three times slower than Apple's efficient (i.e. small) cores in the M1.
    Unsure about the transistor budget, but while ARM's gains are good any Windows ARM laptop - even if it were based solely on the high end 'big' Cortex X2 cores - is still going to lag behind even the iPad Pro.
