About Mali-D51

Arm Mali-D51 is the first Display Processor to bring the benefits of the new Komeda Display architecture to the Mainstream. 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.
