Arm Launches New Cortex-A78C CPU That Promises Enhanced Gaming and Productivity

first_imgArm has announced a new CPU variant that could be seen in laptop SoCs. The Arm Cortex-A78C is a variant of the high-end Cortex-A78 that will power the next generation of flagship smartphones. The company had launched the Cortex-A78 in May this year as its most premium Cortex-A CPU, which is claimed to deliver a 20 percent sustained performance upgrade and 50 percent increase in energy savings over last year’s Cortex-A77. While Cortex-A78 cores are almost exclusively earmarked for smartphones, Arm says the new Cortex-A78C will power the next generation of on-the-go devices, such as always-on laptops.Arm made the announcement through a company blog post, which revealed that the new Cortex-A78C will support up to 8 big CPU core clusters for a more “homogenous multi big core computing”. In comparison, Arm’s high-end Cortex-A78 — which is expected to be part of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 875 and Samsung Exynos 1080 smartphones SoCs — supports 4 big CPU cores and 4 small CPU cores (Cortex-A55) in Arm’s proprietary DynamIQ arrangement.- Advertisement – WWDC 2020 had a lot of exciting announcements from Apple, but which are the best iOS 14 features for India? We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. The company says that the new, more flexible eight-core configuration of the Cortex-A78C can scale up multi-threaded performance that would improve gaming and productivity. Like the Cortex-A78, its new C variant is also compatible with the recently launched Mali-G78 GPU. The new CPU also increases the L3 cache memory to 8MB, which could translate into increased performance especially while working with large datasets, the post says.Arm also says that the new Cortex-A78C CPU enhances data and device security and that its Pointer Authentication Code (PAC) can significantly reduce exploits that allow attackers to take over the software control flow. The company says that it will help in keeping data safe even when installing third-party applications.Arm hasn’t clearly said if its new Cortex-A78C CPU will be a part of SoCs that power laptops or mobile gaming devices anytime soon. If that does happen, it will be interesting to see how the Cortex-A78C on laptop processors level up against the performance of Intel processor cores.- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more

Can U.S. overcome its own history?

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe “America First” slogan has a history much longer than the tenure of the current administration. To infer where it will take us, one must look to the past, much as one might infer the destination of a missile or a meteor from its trajectory. “America First” was launched in the 1916 campaign of isolationist President Woodrow Wilson, embodying his desire to keep the United States out of World War I. In the 1920s, the Ku Klux Klan adopted it, embodying the Klan’s racism.The slogan was reborn in 1940 as the “America First Committee” of isolationist aviator and Nazi sympathizer Charles Lindbergh, embodying his desire to keep the United States out of World War II. The America First Committee also embodied domestically Lindbergh’s own anti-Semitism. He said that the “greatest danger [of Jews] to this country lies in their large ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio and our government.”The past is easier to “predict” than the future. Where is “America First” taking us? My best answer, besides “I don’t know,” is to avert destruction. Missiles can be intercepted and meteors diverted. Overcoming the momentum of projectiles, however, may be easier than overcoming the ominous momentum of history. A mighty effort will be required, including befriending people with whom we may disagree politically, if they are like-minded on existential issues for our democracy.Robert MichaelsNiskayuna More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationPuccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img read more

Indonesian wrestler Eko Roni to meet Malaysia’s Murugan Silvarajoo in ONE Championship bout

first_imgEko Roni Saputra, one of Indonesia’s top wrestlers, looks to put his improved striking repertoire to use against ONE Championship newcomer Murugan “Wolverine” Silvarajoo of Malaysia when the two meet at the ONE: REIGN OF DYNASTIES event on Oct. 9.The Venue and location for this event have yet to be announced by ONE Championship, but the event will be broadcasted through ONE apps and its YouTube channel.Eko, who now trains at Evolve MMA club in Singapore, is highly confident that with the amount of work he put into training, he can come out on top. “We will start in a stand-up position, so we’ll strike a lot. Coach Siyar [Bahadurzada] told me that I’d improved my striking capabilities, and maybe I will need to show that,” Eko said according to a media statement sent to The Jakarta Post on Thursday.“But if it doesn’t work, then I’ll try to take him down, because ultimately, I am a wrestler, so I am better at ground fighting. Then again, if I am not careful, I might get punched and knocked out. So, I need to be cautious and read the situation.”Regarding Silvarajoo, Eko acknowledged that he was facing a former boxing champion who had dangerous hands and was equally skilled on the ground. Eko said he had been warned not to underestimate his opponent.Indonesia and Malaysia are two of the most proud fighting nations in the world of combat sports and martial arts. Both countries feature a long list of incredible martial arts athletes with immense skill. When Eko meets Silvarajoo in the circle, that rivalry will be rehashed.Topics :last_img read more

The Evolution of Science on Same-Sex Households

first_imgPublic Discourse 12 May 2015Now that the Supreme Court’s oral arguments are behind us, and the justices have already privately cast their votes about the future (and the history) of marriage, perhaps it’s possible that the social science of marriage, sexuality, and child outcomes can catch its breath. Better yet, perhaps it can operate without the pressure-cooker of politically acceptable narratives.But after three years, and two separate inquisitions by my own university, I’ve come to conclude that “the beatings will continue until morale improves,” as the saying goes. Or in my case, until I capitulate and admit I was wrong. I’m not above admitting mistakes, but neither am I prone to the sort of reeducation that is being pursued.And so it is that a Washington Post blog recently covered the release of a study that re-analyzes the data I collected and described back in 2012 in my pair of studies of the adult children of parents who have had same-sex relationships, continuing a contest over the meaning of the New Family Structures Study (NFSS) that’s nearing three years in length now. Social science has become a spectator sport.In the spirit of (continued) full disclosure, I was even a blind peer reviewer of an earlier version of this study. I didn’t sign off on what appears in print, but I felt—as a scientist—that alternative analyses at least deserve a hearing, for the sake of science.To their credit, the authors helpfully pointed out a handful of cases that were questionable—respondents whose unlikely answers to other questions (like height, weight, etc.) suggest they weren’t being honest survey-takers. Such a critique is certainly fair and welcome; it’s part of the long-term process of cleaning and clarification in any dataset of substantial size. And removing those questionable cases actually strengthened my original analytic conclusions—and the authors say so: “. . . these adjustments have minimal effect on the outcomes . . . these corrections actually increase the number of significant differences . . .”http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2015/05/14978/?utm_source=The+Witherspoon+Institute&utm_campaign=2756fa59fc-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_15ce6af37b-2756fa59fc-84100345last_img read more

Federer is driving force for tennis in terms of revenue, attention: Djokovic

first_imgWorld number one Novak Djokovic defended his great rival Roger Federer after Frenchman Julien Benneteau caused a stir by claiming that the 20-time Grand Slam champion enjoys a preferential treatment on the tour.Benneteau said that tournament referees were often nicer to Federer when it came to the schedule of his matches in an interview with French radio station RMC Sport. He particularly targetted the Australian Open where Federer has played “12 or 13″ out of his 14 matches in Melbourne for the past two years at night, avoiding the often scorching temperatures.He also picked up the topic of conflict of interest was suggesting that Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley is also involved in Federer’s Laver Cup project.Djokovic, while speaking after his round-robin victory over USA’s John Isner at the ATP Finals on Sunday, said Federer has earned all the priviledges through his exceptional tennis over the years.”In the end of the day, in a way he deserves the special treatment because he’s six-time champion of Australian Open and arguably the best player ever,” Djokovic told reporters.”If he doesn’t have it, who is going to have it? People want to see him play on the centre court, and they want to see him play in showtime, the best hours, which is 7:30 at night in Rod Laver Arena.”I understand Julien’s point because sometimes it does seem that maybe certain players get more favoured year after year in certain tournaments. On the other side, you have to understand that Federer is a driving force of tennis in terms of revenue, in terms of attention.advertisementSee Photos: Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic take London Underground ride ahead of ATP Finals”Julien and guys like him are also benefiting from tennis, because of Roger, because of what he has done for the sport.”Isner went even further, saying the likes of Federer, Djokovic and Rafael Nadal should get even more privileges.”If anything, maybe they should get more special treatment because those guys, the top players, have made other players below them a lot of money,” the American said after his 6-4, 6-3 defeat.”It is like the Tiger Woods effect in golf. So that is how you can look at a guy like Roger. He is men’s tennis in my opinion. He deserves everything and more that he’s ever had.”Six-time champion Federer is back in action, in the night session, at the ATP Finals on Tuesday when he takes on Dominic Thiem, aiming to hit back after losing to Kei Nishikori in his opening group match on Sunday.FEDERER SKIPS PRACTICE AHEAD OF CRUCIAL THIEM CLASH Six-times champion Roger Federer cancelled his practice session at the ATP Finals on Monday, the day after losing his opening round-robin match to Kei Nishikori at the O2 Arena.Federer, making his 16th appearance at the ATP’s showpiece finale, had not lost any of his previous 45 round-robin matches in straight sets before his 7-6(4), 6-3 loss to the Japanese player.It means the 37-year-old faces an uphill battle to reach the semi-finals for the 15th time and another straight sets defeat by Austria’s Dominic Thiem on Tuesday could prove terminal.After his defeat on Sunday, Federer spoke of the difficulty he has had trying to find a practice court that matches the speed of the fast indoor showcourt at the O2 Arena.”It’s just that practice has been a bit all over the place,” he told reporters. “Practised in Queen’s (Club), practised on the outside courts here, then centre as well.”So it’s not always exactly the same conditions.”Last month, 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer revealed that he has been struggling with a hand injury since this year’s grasscourt season.”I hurt my hand training at the start of the grass season,” Federer said at Basel tournament which he won.”It’s had more consequences than I thought. I dragged this pain for about three months.”(With Reuters inputs)last_img read more
