New GPU design for mobile devices
Future smartphones and tablet computers can leverage the enhanced performance of the new Mali-T658 GPU designed by ARM. Up to ten times faster than its predecessor, the new GPU is aimed at boosting mobile graphics and increasing ARM's market share in mobile graphics. We have to wait about 2 years to experience the benefits of the new design as ARM says that its next generation GPU may start appearing in devices towards the end of 2013, however, the competition among the GPU designers is helping drive computing power to new heights. The Mali-T658 has a maximum of eight cores, with each core offering double the arithmetic capability of its predecessor and capable of adjusting its performance according to the demand, making it energy efficient.
