ARM Mali-450 MP Graphics Processor Provides Next-generation Graphics Performance for Smart-TV and Smartphone Applications
ARM has announced the launch of the ARM Mali -450 MP Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), doubling the performance of the successful family of Utgard architecture-based graphics products.The Mali-450 MP GPU expands the range of performance points by supporting scalability of up to 8 cores, while also doubling vertex processing throughput. The Mali-400 MP GPU’s market-leading performance density has proved that it is possible to deliver both performance and power efficiency. The Mali-450 MP takes those capabilities to new levels and, with additional architectural optimization, is designed to maximize reuse of the available resources during the graphics operation. This minimizes the power and bandwidth requirements of the Mali-450 MP GPU.
The significant improvements of the Mali-450 MP GPU, in conjunction with software compatibility across Utgard architecture-based graphics products, enable current Mali GPU users to expand their range of graphics performance points. It also lowers the barrier of entry into the market as new entrants can benefit from the dynamic Mali ecosystem; wide API support; and high-quality, mature drivers already available for the Mali-400 MP GPU.
