ARM Demonstrates Mali-T604 GPU in Samsung Exynos 5 Dual Cortex A15 Processor

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.

Continuing discussion from here http://www.cnx-software.com/2012/08/07/arm-announces-3-new-midgard-gpus-mali-t624-mali-t628-and-mali-t678/ I know that arm do not produce the actual physical processors, but only licence the technology for producing it. Having said that, My original rant is still towards arm based on mine these assumptions. 1. ARM does not do this alone, Mali licence / collaborate with them on hardware layer then software layer over arm core’s 2. Manufacturer do not talks to Mali, he talks to arm, which in turn first license then help them with necessary know how to use this package (arm+mali tech layer) over their processor. 3. In my view this entire… Read more »

I’ve been reading some of the specs and it looks the AAarch64 additions are mainly to foster larger memory mapping and server sale fields. I’m not sure if there will be any major speed increases by using 64bit compared to 32bit.

I’m hoping ARMv8 is ready soon for SOC customers so that the next level of devices are out, like say a Mele 3000… smile…
