ARM's new efficient Cortex-A35 core might end up employed inside wearables
The Cortex-A35 is 25% smaller than the Cortex-A53, and uses 32% less power than the latter. Overall, it is 25% more efficient. Which means that we co could see the Cortex A-35 replace the Cortex A-53, the Cortex-A5 and Cortex-A7. Compared to the Cortex-A7, the new core uses 10% less power, with a 6% to 40% improvement in performance. It can be used in conjunction with the Cortex-A72, Cortex A-57 or Cortex-A53 in a big.LITTLE designed chipset where it would be handling the less imposing tasks.
Parts of the Cortex-A35 are even newer than what you will find on the Cortex A-72, which is why the new core is so power efficient. The first devices to employ the Cortex-A35, whether a smartwatch or a new handset, will be rolling off the assembly line in 2016.
