Mali-400 Ultra Low Power GPU

About Mali-400

The ARM® Mali™-400 GPU is still the world’s most popular mobile GPU*, featured in 20% of devices. The first Mali GPU offering multi-core implementation, the Mali-400 GPU scales 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 is the GPU of choice for reduced cost devices.
