Mali-400 Specifications

The Arm Mali-400 GPU is one of the world’s most shipped mobile GPUs across multiple platforms. It was the first Mali GPU to offer multi-core implementation. The Mali-400 GPU scaled from 1–4 cores and was the world’s first OpenGL ES 2.0 conformant multi core GPU. Focussing on reduced power and bandwidth consumption, the Mali-400 GPU was the GPU of choice for reduced cost devices.
