ARM introduces new Mali-T800 GPU family for that devices

With smartphones growing powerful enough to simply output near console-quality graphics and play ultra high-resolution (4K) video smoother than your laptop, it is really hardly a surprise we're speaking about their graphics accelerators much a similar way we're discussing NVIDIA and AMD's latest benchmark-busting, electricity-gloating offerings. When some time our smartphones' parts become swappable and upgradeable comes, we will be pretty much building portable PCs and arguing which smartphone GPU is best for that money.

ARM introduces new Mali-T800 GPU family for that devices

Until then, let us have apple iphone 4 latest graphics line-up from ARM, maker of chip designs and also the everlasting Mali-400 MP GPU, which still rocks inside an unfathomable quantity of cheap Chinese phones. It announced the new Mali-T800 GPU family, the Mali-V550 video accelerator, and Mali-DP550 display processor. The five new graphics units are made for better performance & lower energy consumption, and can be coming to smartphones and tablets... not very soon, actually. ARM expects them into appear in consumer devices by early 2015. Still, there is the chance to become at home with them.

The ARM Mali-T800 GPU family constitutes the Mali-T820, T-830, and T-860 units. The Mali-T820 GPU is optimized for entry-level products, boasting nearly 40 percent higher performance compared to the Mali-T622 GPU. Mali-T830 is that the mid-range chip, proficient at nearly 55 percent higher performance compared to the Mali-T622 GPU. Finally, the Mali-T860 GPU crowns the family rich in performance and 45 percent better energy-efficiency when compared with the Mali-T628 GPU.

The ARM Mali-T800 GPU family supports the newest APIs including OpenGL® ES 3. 1, DirectX® 11, OpenCL™ and RenderScript. The Mali-T820 and Mali-T830 offer nearly four shader cores, and nearly 16 shader cores inside the Mali-T860.
