ARM Cortex-A9 is a high-performance processor implementing the full richness of the widely supported ARMv7-A architecture. Designed around the high efficiency, dual-issue superscalar, out-of-order, speculating dynamic length pipeline (8 – 11 stages), ARM Cortex-A9 delivers exceptional levels of performance and power efficiency with the functionality required for leading edge products across the broad range of consumer, networking, enterprise and mobile applications. The ARM Cortex-A9 processor can achieve 2.50 DMIPS/MHz.
The ARM Cortex-A9 processor delivers exceptional capabilities for less power than consumed by high performance computer platforms.
