ARM Introduces The Mali T800 GPU Family And Mali-DP550 Video Block

With smartphones and processors seeing upgrades every day, more and
more manufacturers are starting to update their product lineup.
Yesterday we saw Media Tek
introduce two new octa core 64 bit chipsets, one of which was the
MT6753, which includes upgraded LTE band support but a decreased
frequency over its predecessor, the MT6752.

After MediaTek, ARM has also decided to jump the upgrade ship , with
the manufacturer announcing upgrades to its Mali GPU lineup. The
chipmaker has announced the Mali 800 series today, which come with
several upgrades and improvements on board.


ARM To Launch Mali T800 Series And Mali-DP 550 Building Blocks – To Appear In Devices Next Year.

The crown jewel Mali T860 improves incrementally over its predecessor
in terms of API support  with support included in the unit for OpenGLES
3.1, DirectX 11, OpenCl and RenderScript. The other two variants of the
T800 series are also similarly equipped to their predecessors in terms
of performance. The T830 uses half the shading cores on the T730 but
doubles its arithmetic capability by using two ALUs per core. The T820
remains similar to the T720 with one ALU per core.

In addition to the Mali T800 series the manufacturer has also
introduces new display and video blocks. The Mali DP550 while enabling
secure transmission of video from source through the SoC also adds in
specialized co-processors for display tasks and increases the
composition layer count to seven from three.

The
new video block released, the Mali V550 adds hardware support for both
decoding and encoding of H.265. The three products introduced by ARM are
expected to feature in products launching next year. By the looks of
thing, just like MediaTek before it, ARM also has not made any
significant or groundbreaking changes with its upgrades. We’ll find out
more as they start to feature in devices.
