With support for 2D vector graphics through OpenVG 1.1 and 3D graphics through OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0, Mali-200 provides a complete graphics acceleration platform based on the open standards provided by the Khronos Group. Mali is still the only GPU architecture to achieve OpenGL ES 2.0 conformance at 1080 pixels.
The provision of an industry standard AMBA AXI interface makes integration of the Mali-200 GPU into system-on-Chip designs straight-forward, and also provides a well-defined interface for connecting to other bus architectures.
A wide range of 3rd party applications, middleware and tools support through the ARM Mali ecosystem program. Pre-validated with other ARM hardware and software products, as well as a wide array of 3rd party applications & content.
Advanced tile-based deferred rendering and local buffering of intermediate pixel states
Reduced memory bandwidth overhead and lower power consumption
Efficient alpha blending of multiple layers in hardware
Unlimited number of blended layers without additional bandwidth consumption or unexpected performance drops
Full Scene Anti-Aliasing (FSAA) using rotated grid multi sampling
Significantly higher quality and performance than alternative oversampling methods
Integrated MMU based on standard ARM MMU
Allows virtualization of GPU memory resources and fine-grained memory protection
Fully autonomous GPU
Enables maximum parallelization of CPU and GPU tasks
Independent CPU and GPU power management
Maximize battery life, minimize heat dissipation
Fully optimized production quality software drivers
Maximum efficiency with low memory fragmentation, reduced integration time and cost, reduced support burden
*Mali GPUs noted as based on a published Khronos Specification are conformant, or expected to pass the Khronos Conformance Testing Process. Current conformance status can be found at http://www.khronos.org/conformance.
