ARM Showcases Technology for Expanding the Mobile Gaming Experience at Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2014

March 17, 2014

What: At GDC 2014, ARM® will showcase the latest technologies that place ARM at the heart of mobile gaming. Through product demonstrations at its booth and scheduled speaking sessions, ARM will highlight how its leading-edge technology and features and ecosystem help developers and artists deliver the ultimate mobile gaming experience. ARM and its partners will showcase solutions to the most prominent challenges faced by developers and provide insight into how technologies such as the ARM Mali™ family of GPUs enable developers to create stunning visual experiences through high-performance CPU/GPU compute and unique software capabilities.

Why: ARM Cortex® CPUs power 95 percent of the world's smartphones and tablets while Mali GPUs are the IP of choice for Android devices today, including smartphones, tablets and DTVs. As the number of global smartphone and tablet users surpasses the combined total of those with PCs and game consoles, game designers will face increased pressure to develop mobile games that replicate more traditional gaming experiences and provide more realistic visual effects.

Where: GDC 2014, Moscone Convention Center – 747 Howard St. San Francisco, CA. 94103
