Computex Taipei 2013 - ARM has just unveiled the Cortex A12 at Computex in Taipei, Taiwan. This new system-on-a-chip is the latest addition to ARM's line of processors geared towards the mid-range mobile device market. The Cortex A12 is the successor to the widely popular Cortex A9 which was featured in the iPhone 4S and the Galaxy S3.

Sporting four cores, the Cortex A12 is said to be 40 percent more efficient and 30 percent faster than the A9. ARM released this new processor with the expectations of a massive surge in growth for the mid-range mobile market. Mobile phones priced around $200 are expected to ship more than 500 million units by the end of 2015.

 

The road to domination will not be an easy window as ARM faces ruthless competition from other manufacturers such as QUALCOMM, Broadcom, Samsung, Intel, and Apple. We can expect to see the Cortex A12 arrive on the scene in late 2014 or early 2015.
