The Mali-300 GPU offers a seamless upgrade path from the Mali-200 GPU and draws on the architectural benefits of the higher-end Mali-400 MP GPU, delivering a performance level between the ARM Mali-200 and the scalable multicore Mali-400 MP embedded graphics solutions.
The Mali-300 GPU provides a complete graphics acceleration platform based on the Khronos™ OpenGL® ES 2.0 open standard for advanced embedded graphics, allowing for the straightforward implementation of an affordable variety of advanced 3D content across all major mobile and embedded platforms. It also offers support for the OpenVG™ 1.1, and OpenGL® ES 1.1, in common with all other ARM Mali GPUs.
More advanced gaming and compelling user interfaces are possible on screen resolutions up to full HD 1080p with 4x anti-aliasing achieved with minimal decrease in performance. The availability of 8KB of L2 cache reduces bandwidth consumption, which is critical in mobile devices where preserving battery power is a key consideration.
Straightforward application portability and development, as well as the flexibility to upgrade seamlessly to the Mali-400 MP for scalable performance, enabled through a single driver and application stack. This minimizes the cost of hardware and software development and validation for SoC vendors. This combination of benefits enables high performance and rich user experiences on affordable devices.
