Virtual Reality

Mobile Virtual Reality requires high performance and efficiency from a GPU for the highest quality experience. Arm Mali GPUs are leading the way, powering devices from the mobile phone-based Samsung Gear VR to standalone headsets such as Deepon’s M2 VR.

Mali-G71 is set to continue this trend and keep Arm at the forefront of Mobile Virtual Reality. Based on our brand new Bifrost architecture and highly scalable, Mali-G71 has been  developed with the performance demands of next-generation Mobile Virtual Reality devices and platforms such as Google Daydream in mind.

VR Multiview on Mali featured in Unreal Engine 4.14

The 4.14 update to Epic’s Unreal Engine software includes VR Multiview rendering for mobile devices. Multiview provides an optimized stereo rendering path and is supported by the latest Arm Mali GPUs.

VR whitepaper bannerEver wondered if Virtual Reality will really take off this time around, or why it never managed to before? VR is big news all over again and everyone’s talking about its possibilities and all the innovative applications we could use it for. Excitement is rife for the potential but we still have heaps of questions. What’s changed, what still needs to change for it to be really effective and how do we make it happen?

Arm Senior Graphics Architect Sam Martin has written this fantastic white paper especially to address these unanswered questions. Starting his career in the games industry and working on a variety of titles and core technology teams across Lionhead, Intrepid and Kuju, Sam later worked on Arm’s Enlighten global illumination solution as Head of Technology at Geomerics. These days Sam spends his time working to enable challenging new content on mobile, with a current major focus on VR.
