Mali-T860 and Mali-T880 High Performance GPUs

Mali-T860 and T880 Block Diagram.

About Mali-T860 GPU and Mali-T880 GPUs

The highest performance GPUs built on the Arm Mali Midgard architecture. The Mali-T860 and Mali-T880 GPUs are designed for complex graphics use cases and provide stunning visuals for UHD content. Scalable from 1-16 cores, these GPUs implement new features and optimizations within their micro-architectures such as higher arithmetic throughput to better handle both casual and complex content. Other optimization examples include quad prioritization delivering enhanced performance for UI and casual content, and enhanced Forward Pixel Kill that improves performance for more advanced use cases by eliminating redundant work early in the pipeline.

Virtual Memory. Virtual Memory. Built-in Memory Management Unit (MMU) to support virtual memory.
Multi-Core Scaling
1 to 16 cores.
1 to 16 cores.
Optimized for high area and energy efficiency to address the high-end mobile market and consumer device requirements.
Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression (ASTC)
Low Dynamic Range (LDR) and High Dynamic Range (HDR).
Supports both 2D and 3D images.
Low Dynamic Range (LDR) and High Dynamic Range (HDR).
Supports both 2D and 3D images.
ASTC offers a number of advantages over existing texture compression schemes by improving image quality, reducing memory bandwidth and thus energy use.
Arm Frame Buffer Compression (AFBC)
4x4 pixel block size. 4x4 pixel block size. AFBC is a lossless image compression format that provides random access to pixel data to a 4x4 pixel block granularity. It is employed to reduce memory bandwidth both internally within the GPU and externally throughout the SoC.
Transaction Elimination
16x16 pixel block size.
16x16 pixel block size.
Transaction Elimination spots the identical pixel blocks between two consecutive render targets and performs a partial update to the frame buffer with the changed pixel blocks only, which reduces memory bandwidth and thus energy.
Smart Composition
16x16 pixel block size.
16x16 pixel block size.
Smart Composition extends the concept of Transaction Elimination to every stage of UI composition. Identical pixel blocks of input surfaces are not read, not processed for composition and not written to final frame buffer.
