Since Arm’s architectures are widely licensed throughout the chip industry, the new designs could accelerate development within the automotive and industrial automation sectors. Arm claims the Cortex-A78AE CPU will offer a 30% performance boost relative to its predecessor, while the Mali-G78AE GPU will unlock more advanced autonomous capabilities by enabling up to 24 shader cores to function simultaneously. 

The new chips utilize partitioned architecture, allowing them to efficiently address safety concerns that hamper automation efforts. Because of the high stakes of a miscalculation, chips for autonomous
