Advancements to the Midgard family’s routing density, top-level layout and layering have significantly reduced the ARM Mali-T720 GPU’s die-area, implementation effort and cost, making it the ideal GPU for the fast-moving entry-level smartphone market where low-cost and time -to -market are essential for success. Targeted specifically at the Android market, the ARM Mali-T720 GPU simplifies implementation effort even further by offering optimized API support* for OpenGL® ES 3.1/3.0/2.0/1.0 and RenderScript.
It maintains compatibility with software development assets of the Midgard architecture including the trusted and stable ARM Mali GPU DDK, which is provided under the standard ARM commercial licence to all ARM Mali GPU customers.
ARM POP™ IP for the Mali-T720 will be made available to further decrease time to market and improve the dependability of your product. ARM POP IP is core-hardening acceleration technology for producing the best ARM processor implementations in the fastest time to market with the flexibility to optimize for maximum performance, lowest power, or any combination in between.
*Product is based on a published Khronos Specification, and is expected to pass the Khronos Conformance Testing Process. Current conformance status can be found at www.khronos.org/conformance.
