The Cortex®-A53 processor is an extremely power efficient ARMv8 processor capable of supporting 32-bit and 64-bit code seamlessly. It makes use of a highly efficient 8-stage in-order pipeline balanced with advanced fetch and data access techniques for performance. It fits in a power and area footprint suitable for entry level smartphones, at the same time, capable of delivering high aggregate performance in scalable enterprise systems via high core density.

It delivers significantly higher performance than the highly successful Cortex-A7, and is capable of deployment as a standalone applications processor or paired with the Cortex-A57 processor in a big.LITTLE configuration for optimum performance, scalability and energy efficiency.
