Mali-G70 Series GPU

The ARM® Mali-G71 is the latest offering in the High Performance line of ARM's Mali family of GPUs, the number one shipping GPUs in the world. Built upon the brand new Bifrost architecture, Mali-G71 represents a whole new level of high-end mobile graphics capabilities whilst still making huge advancements in efficiency. The Mali family enables stunning visuals for UHD content and the superior power and scalability of the Mali-G71 makes it the perfect GPU for next generation, high end use cases like premium gaming and mobile VR.

As the complexity of 3D mobile graphics content continues to increase, so too must the computational capabilities of high-end GPUs. This is essential to deliver the latest games and applications to end-users within the power and thermal envelope of mobile devices. The Mali-G71 GPU was developed expressly to meet the needs of new industry advancements such as the Vulkan cross-platform graphics API from Khronos as well as the ever growing demand for a smooth mobile VR experience. The Mali-G71 GPU is scalable from one to thirty two cores and delivers up to 20% better energy efficiency, 40% better performance density and 20% external memory bandwidth saving compared to Mali-T880 under similar conditions.

Memory System Virtual Memory Built-in Memory Management Unit (MMU) to support virtual memory
Multi-Core Scaling 1 to 32 cores Optimized for high energy efficiency to address the high-end mobile and consumer device requirements
Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression
(ASTC)
Low dynamic range (LDR) and high dynamic range (HDR).
Supports both 2D and 3D images
ASTC offers a number of advantages over existing texture compression schemes by improving image quality, reducing memory bandwidth and thus energy use.
ARM Frame Buffer Compression (AFBC) 4x4 pixel block size
AFBC is a lossless image compression format that provides random access to pixel data to a 4x4 pixel block granularity. It is employed to reduce memory bandwidth both internally within the GPU and externally throughout the SoC
Transaction Elimination 16x16 pixel block size Transaction Elimination spots the identical pixel blocks between two consecutive render targets and performs a partial update to the frame buffer with the changed pixel blocks only, which reduces memory bandwidth and thus energy
Smart Composition 16x16 pixel block size Smart Composition extends the concept of Transaction Elimination to every stage of UI composition. Identical pixel blocks of input surfaces are not read, not processed for composition and not written to final frame buffer
