About Mali-D77

The Arm Mali-D77 DPU is the second-generation premium Mali display processor to be built on the innovative Komeda architecture. Mali-D77 adds Virtual Reality (VR) processing functions on top of Mali-D71. It has the versatility to drive either VR head-mounted displays (HMDs) or standard large and small screen premium displays. The display processor is designed to improve the overall user experience for VR head-mounted displays by eliminating motion sickness and image artefacts, such as motion blur and screen door effect. This is made possible by enabling higher display resolutions and frames rates (up to 4K90), lowering the motion-to-photon latency and improving the image quality.

Mali-D77 is an important companion to Mali GPUs, as it limits the GPU workload through offering considerable system power savings to existing 4K solutions. Enabling powerful untethered VR devices that have better performance for a longer duration of time.
