    Phoronix: Arm Cortex-A77 Support Upstreamed Finally To LLVM Clang 11

    While the Arm Cortex-A77 was announced last year and already has been succeeded by the Cortex-A78 announcement, support for the A77 has finally been upstreamed to the LLVM Clang compiler...

    It will be most interesting to see this new ARM hardware.

      But A77 is already obsolete since we've got A78

        Maybe some one got A78, I doesn't got any..

        And if you look to arm devices around, a lot are still cortex a53, or cortex a72, or cortex a73 I don't see nothing cortex A78 on the sbc market, or domestic market motherboards..

        What I would love to see is a atx like motherboard with the 2.5Ghz RISCV 7.1 CoreMark/Mhz 22nm from Alibaba.. that would be great news

          No one has it, yet. It was just announced on May 26th.

          Next step is for SoC builders to license it and integrate it into their chips and get those fabbed. Then, phone, tablet, and laptop makers need to build devices around those SoCs. So, realistically, you're looking at about Q2 of 2021 for the first devices ship with it.

          One of the first devices to include the A77 started shipping about 3 months ago. This review is from April 3rd: https://www.anandtech.com/show/15603...omania-devices

          Low-cost SBCs are going to use SoCs built around older core designs that are cheaper to license and designed for cheaper manufacturing process nodes that are at least a couple generations old.

            Yeah that's true, but it sucks
            Should be out there a Vendor pushing for premium, and by premium, I mean not only on the price but also on the specs.

            Right now, to buy a "Desktop" arm machine, with "desktop like" performance costs both both eyes and maybe a kidney
            So it doesn't reflect the real product value..

              Granted, the performance isn't exactly competitive with PCs, but it supports all of the normal PC expansion slots/sockets and it's surely faster than a Raspberry Pi.
