The Broadcom chip used in the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B
The underlying architecture in BCM2836 is identical to BCM2835. The only significant difference is the removal of the ARM1176JZF-S processor and replacement with a quad-core Cortex-A7 cluster.
Cortex-A7 MPCore processor
The Cortex-A7 MPCore processor is a high-performance, low-power processor that implements the ARMv7-A architecture. The Cortex-A7 MPCore processor has one to four processors in a single multiprocessor device with a L1 cache subsystem, an optional integrated GIC, and an optional L2 cache controller.
