Mali-400 Series GPUs
The world's first OpenGL® ES 2.0 conformant multi-core GPU provides 2D and 3D acceleration with performance scalable up to 1080p resolutions, while maintaining ARM leadership on power and bandwidth efficiency.
The Mali-400 MP GPU’s market-leading performance density has proved that it is possible to deliver both performance and power efficiency. The Mali-450 MP takes those capabilities to new levels and, with additional architectural optimization, is designed to maximize reuse of the available resources during the graphics operation. This minimizes the power and bandwidth requirements of the Mali-450 MP GPU.
These significant improvements in conjunction with software compatibility across the family of Mali-300, Mali-400 MP and now Mali-450 MP enable current Mali users to expand their range of graphics performance points whilst reusing their existing software investments. Mali-450 MP also lowers the barrier of entry into the market as new entrants can benefit from the vibrant dynamic ecosystem, wide API support; high quality optimized mature drivers all already established on Mali-400 MP.
