ARM unveils Mali-T658 GPU, promises 10x graphics performance than Current-Gen GPU
ARM has announced the new Mali-T658 GPU that offers 10 times the performance than current-Gen GPU, Mali-400 MP GPU that is used in the mainstream consumer devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S II. This also offers 4 times the processing power of Mali-T604 and also offers a range of performance and API support than that of all currently available embedded GPUs that offers better uses such as traditional graphics processing, including HD gaming, computational photography, image-processing and augmented reality.
Specifications of the ARM Mali-T658 GPU
With the current ARM Partners, such as Fujitsu Semiconductor, LG Electronics, Nufront and Samsung, the Mali-T658 GPU would offer better computing experience on a range of next-gen devices. This also supports wide range of graphics and compute APIs including Microsoft DirectX 11, Khronos OpenGL ES, OpenVG, Khronos OpenCL, Google Renderscript and Microsoft DirectCompute.
This would work on ARM Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A7 processors and would handle GPU compute tasks in parallel with the CPU handling the always-on always-connected tasks. The Job Manager within Mali-T600 Series GPUs offloads task management from the CPU to the GPU and enables seamless load balancing across active shader cores.
