ARM plans high-end multi-core graphics for Smartphones

Image

Chip designer ARM will today unveil a multi-core graphics chip aimed at boosting the display performance of future phone handsets and other devices, bringing them closer to the capabilities available in desktop computers.

The Mali 400 MP graphics processing unit (GPU) is designed to scale with performance needs up to handling a billion pixels per second while keeping power consumption as low as possible, according to ARM. The first products featuring the technology are expected in 2010.

"The vision we have is that, going forwards, every device will have hardware acceleration for graphics. By 2012, pretty much every smartphone will have a GPU,?said Chris Porthouse, ARM senior product manager for media hardware.

I was in the process of writing a piece on this as I read this article. Too slow for the Omnipotent One, Teo. :roll:
Good post! :yeah: I believe this has implications with Ngage, and probably why they made a flagship without a 3D chip. Maybe a separate core will control Ngage exclusively. They are a major ARM partner, and could have a whole new way of doing graphics they're implementing now...

ARM already HAS amazing product the problem is for a Phone manufacturing company to utilize this. look at the possibilities of these phones with chips... and what did they get us? global race? quake 2? makes me mad to see so much power goto waste. imo

Pretty sure Nokia didn't forget about this chip on its latest devices and they never meant to give up with it, one thing we all know very well about the Finnish society is that they'll never release the perfect phone. It's just too early to suit Xenon, FP2, lower battery consumption, video stuff and 3D chip together already :wink:
