ARM announces Mali-T658 GPU (ARM Cortex A15) 10 time’s faster than Mali 4000 on SGS II


ARM makes another breakthrough announcement revealing the ARM® Mali™-T658 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) – the latest member of the Midgard architecture-based GPU family targeting high performance devices, such as superphones, tablets and smart-TVs.

The Mali-T658 GPU takes advantage of the unique ARM system-level approach to multicore design optimizing both performance and energy-efficiency. Addressing to high-end consumer requirements, the Mali-T658 GPU delivers up to ten times the graphics performance of the Mali-400 MP GPU, found in a wide range of today’s mainstream consumer products such as Samsung GALAXY S2. It also features four times the GPU Compute performance of the Mali-T604 GPU, which is still in pre-production so far we havent seen this chipset in action tipped to come along with the next generation Exynos chipsets.

The Mali-T658 delivers desktop-class performance to the mobile scene, by doubling the number of GPU cores, doubling the number of arithmetic
