About Mali-470

The Arm Mali-470 Ultra Low Power GPU doubles the energy efficiency of the previous Utgard-based Mali GPUs. This reduces the cost of both implementation and operation.  The Mali-470 delivers superior energy efficiency across 1–4 core implementations. It is the first GPU designed specifically for the power-sensitive requirements of wearable and IoT devices.

Key features

  • Twice the energy efficiency of previous Mali GPU generations.
  • Designed for wearables and IoT.
  • Builds on the overwhelming success of Mali-400,  Arm’s most popular Ultra Low Power GPU.
  • Support for OpenGL ES 2.0.

Key benefits

  • Maximizes battery life with minimal thermal implications.
  • Expands the smartphone user experience to wearables and IoT.    
  • Maximum efficiency with low memory fragmentation, reduced integration time and cost, reduced support burden.
