ARM Announces New Mali-T604 Embedded GPU
ARM has announced the successor to its Mali-400, the Mali-T604.
Over the last couple of years we've been seeing a lot more of ARM thanks to a huge increase in high-powered mobile devices. Already playing a massive role when it comes to powering countless phones, tablets and MIDs, the company yesterday announced its new embedded GPU architecture, the Mali-T604.
Supporting OpenCL 1.1, Direct X and DirectX 11, the Mali-T604 is also designed to meet the increasing demand for GPGPU power and is the first GPU in the Midgard architecture family. It uses a tri-pipe design to optimize performance and flexibility, and ARM claims the Mali-T604 is capable of delivering up to five times the performance of the previous generation Mali-400 GPU.
Samsung, already a licensee of the Mali graphic processor technology, will be the first ARM Partner to gain access to the Mali-T604, but the technology is now available for partners to license.
