Save Significant System Bandwidth and Power
AFBC is a lossless image compression protocol and format that addresses the difficulty of creating increasingly complex designs within the thermal limit of a mobile device. Video post processing is highly bandwidth-intensive and the GPU often must read a video and apply effects when using video streams as textures in 2D or 3D scenes. Such uses can reduce the overall system-level bandwidth and power cost of transferring spatially coordinated image data throughout the system by up to 50 percent. AFBC minimizes the amount of data transferred between IP blocks within a SoC with lossless compression ratios among leading standards and the benefit of fine grained random access. This allows for the application of AFBC throughout other IP blocks within an SoC design.
Reducing bandwidth can lead to important power savings, depending on the design of your SoC. Talk to an Arm expert about what solutions will help reduce overall SoC power.
The Arm Mali family of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) includes the cost-efficient graphics roadmap, which focuses on delivering high-quality graphics within the smallest possible area.
The Mali Video roadmap offers advanced video technology, combined with power efficiency and one of the smallest chip sizes in the market, to creators of home and mobile devices. All variations offer stunning HD visual and experiential quality to end users.
Mali Display Processors
As the resolution and quality of displays increase for media systems, efficient processing of the display output becomes even more important. A dedicated display processor that controls output to the screen and enables the GPU to offload basic tasks improves visual quality and reduces overall power consumption.
Mali-C71 was developed for the emerging smart automotive market, delivering key visual information to the driver for clear and convenient viewing.
Assertive Display is an advanced display management core that delivers a high-quality viewing experience even in bright sunshine. Having shipped in more than 1 billion devices, it also enables dramatic reductions in display power consumption.
