Mali-450 Ultra Low Power GPU

About Mali-450

The ARM® Mali™-450 is the second ARM Mali Ultra Low Power GPU built on the Utgard architecture and introduces double the scalability of the very popular Mali-400 GPU, to address a broader range of performance points and use cases.  

Key features

  • Scalable from 1–8 cores.
  • Double the vertex processing throughput of the Mali-400 GPU.
  • Maximizes reuse of the available resources during graphics operations.
  • Support for OpenGL ES 2.0.

Key benefits

  • New levels of performance density providing additional cost savings.
  • Minimizes power and bandwidth usage.
  • Capable of supporting up to 4K resolutions.
