In Order, or Out Of Order CPU cores?

Are the cores of the CPU’s within the Rock 3 A and Rock 3 B “in order” functioning, or “out of order” functioning? What impact does this have upon performance?

Cortex-A55 is in-order. This makes them more power conserving but less performant than a similar out-of-order design depending on the workload and whether compiled code has been done so to improve efficiency/performance on such.
