The ARM Mali-T658 GPU supports multiple Compute APIs, including Khronos® OpenCL 1.1 (Full Profile), Google Renderscript compute and Microsoft DirectCompute. It provides native hardware support for 64-bit scalar and vector, integer and floating-point data types - fundamental to accelerate complex and computationally intensive algorithms. Complete support for Khronos APIs is maintained across the Mali-T600 Series of GPUs.
The Job Manager within Mali-T600 Series GPUs offloads task management from the CPU to the GPU and enables seamless load balancing across active shader cores. Concurrent delivery of a common set of compatible drivers for all Midgard architecture-based Mali GPUs enables faster time-to-market and minimizes software upgrade costs for future implementations.
The Mali-T658 GPU takes advantage of ARM CoreLink Cache Coherent Interconnect (CCI-400) technology, enabling faster and more efficient sharing of data with other processors in the system.
*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.
