Quality Mobile Gaming Experiences 

For decades, Arm has been a leading contributor to the mobile gaming industry. As the gaming industry experiences a shift toward being ‘mobile-first,’ mobile games now earn far more revenue than PC and console-based games. This phenomenal growth is driving more premium PC and console gaming titles to mobile with users expecting a similar experience with a consistently high frame rate and no lag.

Arm technology plays a key role in transforming console and PC gaming into an exceptional mobile experience. We provide the technology, tools and software for mobile devices to run high-quality AAA games dependent on powerful graphics, compute (both single thread, sustained, and low power), machine learning (ML), and connectivity.


Mobile Gaming Architecture of Choice

Arm’s high-performance, energy-efficient CPUs and GPUs enable sustained console-like gaming experiences ‘on-the-go’ and prepare partners for the next wave of innovation, including immersive AR and VR gaming and 5G opportunities.

Since 2009, Arm has increased the smartphone’s CPU performance by 100x and GPU performance by 300x providing gamers with the highest-quality, most immersive mobile gaming experiences possible. Our ongoing energy and power efficiency improvements enable longer battery life on devices, and Arm provides tools and resources to help developers optimize games on Arm-based devices, as a growing number of premium gaming titles move from PC and console to mobile.
