For the very first time, ARM showcased on of their latest GPU, the Mali T-604, at SIGGRAPH 2012. There were 3 demos running in a tablet reference platform based on Samsung Exynos 5 Dual Cortex A15 processor clocked at 1.7 GHz:
- Timbuktu 2 showing improvement brought by OpenGL ES 3.0 such as higher details buffers, shadow comparison, etc…
- Hauntheim showcasing multiple lightings accelerated with GLES 3.0 and OpenCL (GPU compute)
- Enlighten, a demo where you can adjust the sun position and see the building shadows move smoothly in real-time.
Devices featuring this technology may be available by the end of the year.
