The Cortex-A73 processor is a highly-efficient high-performance processor.
The Cortex-A73 processor can be paired with the Cortex-A53 or Cortex-A35 processor in a big.LITTLE configuration for an array of mobile and embedded devices. The Cortex-A73 processor cluster has one to four cores, each with their L1 instruction and data caches, together with a single shared L2 unified cache.
