Written by Michael Larabel in Compiler on 9 December 2013 at 08:10 AM EST. Add A Comment
ARM Holdings has published GCC compiler support today for the Cortex-A12 processor.

Similar to the LLVM support for the Cortex-A12, the patch for adding the A12 CPU isn't invasive. The Cortex-A12 core is architectually identical to the Cortex-A7 and A15 cores but a new -mcpu=cortex-a12 option has been added to the compiler along with RTX costs tables and other tuning work.

The Cortex-A12 support for the GNU Compiler Collection is currently sitting on the gcc-patches list.
