Some analysis: https://www.anandtech.com/show/12785/arm-cortex-a76-cpu-unveiled-7nm-powerhouse
Has some mitigation of Spectre/Meltdown styled OOE attacks, apparently.
Arm is getting serious about the laptop market.
Laptop grade sounds promising I guess. Cortex cores so far have been really weak. Hopefully this is actually better.
I think their direction is more exciting than the hardware itself, to be honest. The current crop of Snapdragon 835 PCs are appealing to me, because I’d rather have outstanding battery life than top-tier performance (they’re obviously nowhere close.) So, that-but-better is an attractive prospect to me.
