The latest GCC 7 development code now has support for the ARM Cortex-A73 processor.

Support was added today for handling the Cortex-A73 with the GNU Compiler Collection as a target exposed as cortex-a73.

The Cortex-A73 was announced a while back as the new premium ARM CPU while delivering 30% higher performance and up to 30% greater power efficiency. This is also the smallest premium ARv8-A core. The Cortex-A73 is expected to begin appearing in high-end mobile phones in 2017.
