ARM launched the fastest and most efficient 64-bit mobile processor in the world – its ARM® Cortex®-A35 processor which is made to power CPUs and high-end mobile devices and applications emerging in the market today.
The Cortex-A35 is designed for faster and improved functionality to devices that use the ARMv8-A architecture with its 64-bit capable and 32-bit computational capability; it comes with a complete set of cryptography features. The new Cortex-A35 will begin shipping by ARM in mid-2016.
“Cortex-A35 is the natural successor to the compact-footprint Cortex-A7, the leading energy-efficient processor, which has powered more than a billion smartphones and tablets,” said James McNiven, general manager, CPU group.
“With the introduction of the world’s most efficient 64-bit capable mobile processor, ARM and its partners will deliver the benefits of 64-bit computing to the next billion smartphone users and beyond,” McNiven said.
The Cortex-A35 is the most efficient Cortex-A class CPU ever designed by ARM. According to Phil Hughes, director of tech PR, ARM, the processor works like the Cortex-A7 and agrees with the configuration of big. LITTLE™ multi-core’s software for the best 64-bit compute performance under the ARMv8-A architecture.
Providing an elevated performance of 20% higher efficiency across all 32-bit mobile workloads relative to the Cortex-A7 and using less than 90mW total power per core when operating at 1GHZ in a 28nm process node; the Cortex-A35 processor is compatible with 32-bit applications and works best with 64-bit mobile devices to boost users’ experience.
“The ARM Cortex-A35 processor is welcomed by MediaTek for its scalability of the ARMv8-A architecture, which will enable us to continue to provide efficient and highly integrated 64-bit SoCs to global markets,” said Jeffrey Ju, executive vice president and co-chief operating officer, MediaTek.

Nearly 50% of smartphones now work on the ARMv8-A architecture, and it means the 64-bit capable Cortex-A53 processor powers most of these units. It uses 33% less power per core and takes up 25% less silicon space that is comparable to the Cortex-A53.
