    Both Andreis direct measurements and some benchmark results really point to the memory subsystem being the next area to scrutinise hard. The SoC in itself seems nicely balanced, even though it is a bit tricky to compare the results directly to the 10nm efforts of Qualcomm and Samsung. It will be very interesting to see their first 7nm SoCs as well.

    From the GPU side of things it sounds definitely like a good step into the right direction, however it still seems to trail the Adreno630, meaning that if QCOM's 7nm ULP SoC GPU should add another (freely invented percentage) ~30% performance, it'll remain ahead in terms of PPA.

    As always excellent work Monsieur Andrei!

    This definitely looks very good for the A76. Close to same performance/Watt as the A12.
    For Spec int/float : 2.14 / 2.65 Watt for A76 versus 3.64 / 4.27 Watt for the A12.
    (scores 26/34 A76 vs 45/55 for A12)

    Looking at the die there would easily fit 16xA76 and 16xA55 cores on the 74mm2, with 16MB L3 and 2.5MB L2.
