I don't remember ARM claiming that A73 has to be faster than A72 on any test.

french toast is on a distinguished road

Yea I got that, but I honestly think a73 would be better suited to a hexacore big_LITTLE setup, as in no a53 as the power efficiency core, efficiency a72 was already outstanding, a73 looks to have improved this as well as area efficiency, a73 cores are tiny even in comparison to kryo which is also 2 wide.

I would have loved Qualcomm to have gone hexacore a73, 4x a73 @ <1.5 and 2x a73@ >2.8ghz, I think this would have been better for most mobile workloads rather than a 4+4 setup.
It will be interesting to see what improvements Qualcomm have made to the design (if any).
