ARM has launch of the ARM Mali-450 MP Graphics
Processing Unit (GPU), a new graphics core that doubles
the performance of the company's Mali-400 MP solution.
The successor of the Mali-400 MP GPU - currently found
in mainstream smart-TVs and Android-based smartphones
and tablets - expands the range of performance points by
supporting scalability of up to 8 cores, while also
doubling vertex processing throughput. ARM has made
additional architectural optimizations for the new
Mali-450 MP in order to maximize reuse of the available
resources during the graphics operation. This minimizes
the power and bandwidth requirements of the Mali-450 MP
With linear performance scaling and focus on maximizing
processing efficiency, even when rendering at four times
Full Scene Anti-Aliasing (4xFSAA), the new GPU
promises to offer superior image quality even at 2K and
4K screen resolutions.
Mali software DDK also enables easy transition to
Mali-450 MP by maintaining one driver and application
stack for the current and future product portfolio.
Additionally Mali GPU multicore scaling is completely
transparent to software developers, lowering cost of
