Mali-D51 Display Processor

Arm-MALI-D51 Block Diagram.

About Mali-D51

Arm Mali-D51 is one of the first Display Processors to bring the benefits of the innovative Komeda display architecture to mainstream devices. Mali-D51 offloads the GPU by performing composition, in-line rotation, high quality scaling gamma/de-gamma and other imaging processing before sending the final image to the screen.
