ARM and Samsung Sign Long-Term Agreement to Take Customers' Visual Experiences to a New Level

June 03, 2015


Cambridge, UK, June 3, 2015 - ARM has signed an expansive long-term graphics technology agreement with Samsung to enable the creation of next generation devices capable of delivering even more compelling visual experiences. The subscription license covers ARM® Mali™ graphics processing units (GPUs) including the Mali-T820/830/860, the recently announced Mali-T880 and all future Mali GPUs.

This long term contract with ARM allows Samsung to continue creating innovative products addressing a range of price and performance points to meet the evolving needs of multiple markets. Samsung is already utilizing ARM Mali technology in SoCs powering an impressive range of leading consumer products.

"The visual quality is a critical part of high-end mobile devices. The highly scalable and energy-efficient ARM Mali family gives us the flexibility we need to address a broad range of devices," said Jae Cheol Son, senior vice president, processor development team, Samsung Electronics.

The ARM Mali GPU family is now the most popular licensable GPU IP in the world with ARM's silicon partners shipping in excess of 550 million Mali-enabled SoCs in 2014.

"Hundreds of millions of consumers have benefited from the longstanding collaboration between Samsung and ARM," said Mark Dickinson, general manager, media processing group, ARM. "ARM's leadership in graphics, coupled with this long-term agreement, will enable Samsung to deliver rich and exciting user experiences to consumers on any device."

As mobile and consumer markets continue to diversify, manufacturers need to deliver increasingly differentiated devices to consumers at the best possible price points. The diverse and scalable Mali product family empowers ARM partners to develop optimized solutions to address specific applications across the spectrum of the mobile, home entertainment and other consumer markets.
