Second generation Mali graphics processors aim at tablets, smartphones and smart-TVs

ARM has launched the second generation of its Mali-T600 series graphics processing units (GPUs), improving the user experience for tablets, smartphones and smart-TVs.

Each of the products features a 50 percent performance increase and are the first to include Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression (ASTC), a texture compression technique that originated from ARM. ASTC significantly optimizes GPU performance and increases battery life in devices and has now been adopted by the Khronos Group for open graphics standards.
Based on the Mali Midgard architecture, the second generation of the Mali-T600 Series comprises three GPUs - the Mali-T624, Mali-T628 and Mali-T678. Each product has been tuned to provide optimal performance and energy-efficiency for different end devices. The Mali-T624 and Mali-T628 products provide market leading graphics and GPU compute to smartphones and smart-TVs, while the Mali-T678 has been optimized to address the demands of the rapidly growing tablet market.
This enables improved energy-efficiency for current and new math intensive activities, such as computational photography to use computational methods of enhancing or extending digital photography and mult- perspective views. It will also enable real-time photo editing on mobile devices.
People expect higher standards of visual computing on their smartphones, tablets and smart-TVs with seamless access to their digital world and personal content, said Pete Hutton, general manager, Media Processing Division, ARM. GPU compute enables this as it increases the range of functions mobile devices can perform within the available battery life. ARM continues to focus on system-wide optimization by integrating market leading CPU and GPU technologies to drive both high performance and energy-efficiency.
