Graphics processing from ARM
The ARM® Mali™ Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is the number one licensable GPU in the industry. In 2014, ARM shipped 550 million Mali GPUs in a wide range of devices from the newest premium range smartphones to the latest low-power wearables. Mali is not only the most popular, but also the most scalable GPU in the world. The Mali family includes the High Performance GPU roadmap which is designed specifically to bring the highest levels of performance to premium devices with a particular emphasis on maintaining energy efficiency. In addition, the High Area Efficiency GPU roadmap focuses on delivering high quality graphics within the smallest possible area, and the Ultra-Low Power roadmap offers high quality graphics within an extremely low power budget for extended device battery-life.
ARM Mali Ultra-low Power GPUs are optimized to provide high quality graphics within an extremely low power budget for extended device battery life. Mali Ultra-low Power GPUs offer a class-leading selection of multi-core scalable solutions designed to satisfy the stringent power requirements of Wearable and IoT devices. Other products that require enhanced battery life, for example entry-level smartphones, can also benefit from using Mali Ultra-low Power GPUs.
High Area Efficiency
ARM Mali Area Efficient GPUs are optimized to provide high performance, energy efficient graphics in the smallest possible silicon area for the lowest possible cost. Including both graphics-only and graphics plus GPU Compute technology, Mali Area Efficient GPUs offer a diverse selection of scalable solutions for low- to mid-range smartphones, tablets and DTVs.
With stunning graphics capabilities, ARM Mali High Performance GPUs combine GPU Compute functionality with micro-architecture enhancements and system-wide, bandwidth-saving technology to bring energy efficiency to advanced mobile and consumer devices. GPU Compute solutions enable each task to be executed on the most suitable processor within the system. The resultant efficiencies guarantee superior graphics performance and extended battery life.
