Have you ever thought of the fact that iPhones have the upper hand compared to Android smartphones? The reason is the powerful processor; in terms of performance, the iPhones are faster, which is something that every user wants. What if we say that the upcoming Android smartphone will surpass the iPhone in these terms? Arm’s next Cortex-X CPU may be the most powerful smartphone CPU available, as per analyst company Moor Insights and Strategy. If past performance is an indication, the next CPU is rumored to be codenamed Blackhawk and will likely go by the moniker Cortex-X5.
According to the analysis conducted by the analyst group, the next five years are expected to see the greatest rise in IPC performance with this new CPU. The analyst group observed the most recent performance increase with the 2020 release of the first Cortex-XI CPU. Additionally, it is claimed that the CPU has great large language model (LLM) performance, indicating a significant improvement for generative AI applications. However, Qualcomm is anticipated to employ the Oryon CPU Core, which it created internally, in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor.
The next Snapdragon is anticipated to have exceptional performance in efficiency, all crediting to the new chip design. The majority of Galaxy S25 phones will run on the 3nm Exynos 2500 mobile platform, which may feature ARM’s Cortex-X5 CPU core. The 3nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 with the new Oryon CPU core will be used in the remaining Galaxy S25 devices. Although there have been notable improvements in recent years to the Arm-based CPUs used in Android phones, the single-core CPU performance of these devices has not kept up with that of Apple’s iPhone hardware.
The study states that ARM wants to “eliminate the performance gap between custom Arm implementations and Arm-designed processors.” Apple’s unique use of ARM design, often seen in iPhones and iPads, defines the ARM implementation in this context. However, you shouldn’t count on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor to use this Blackhawk CPU. The first mobile Snapdragon processor to feature the company’s proprietary Oryon CPU cores will be the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4.
