The first generation of 5G smartphones has already landed, but they are full of compromises (i.e. needing separate chips for the SoC and the 5G modem). MediaTek, a Taiwanese-based chip company whose SoCs typically end up in budget smartphones, has announced the first SoC with an integrated 5G modem. MediaTek is simply calling it the “5G SoC” and it fully integrates the company's Helio M70 5G modem. According to the company, this is a multi-mode 5G modem that is capable of supporting 5G along with legacy 4G, 3G, and 2G networks. MediaTek says that the M70 is capable of supporting 5G NR (sub-6GHz), 2x carrier aggregation along with both standalone and non-standalone 5G networks.... Read more...
If you thought that the Snapdragon 855 was a monstrous beast of a smartphone SoC, there’s more where that came from. Arm -- the technology company behind the chip designs that power mobile SoCs from Qualcomm, Samsung and Huawei -- has announced two major components that will go into next-generation SoCs. The first is a new Cortex-A77 CPU, which will drive a 20 percent uplift in IPC performance compared to the Cortex-A76 used in the Snapdragon 855, while memory bandwidth has increased by 15 percent. Arm says that it has also managed to improve machine learning performance over the past two generations of high-end Cortex CPU designs by 35x.  Like the Cortex-A76 before it, Cortex-A77...
