ARM's New Mali-T604 GPU Could Pack "Desktop" Punch
It doesn't take a huge imagination to see how this could positively impact our lives going forward. Even compact applications could finally tap into high-grade graphics -- everything from in-car GPS units to point-of-sale systems could see a major upgrade. Wondering about specifics for the platform? Here's the word straight from ARM:
"The Mali-T600 Series of GPUs have been designed from the outset for GPU computing, including full support for work-groups and synchronization barriers. Building on a scalable multicore, multi-pipeline architecture design, the Mali-T600 Series GPU includes a number of advanced features. In particular, native scalar and vector operations for OpenCL's integer and floating point data types (including 64-bit); support for static and dynamic compilation; hardware accelerated image and sampler data types; fast atomic operations and compliance to IEEE754-2008 precision requirements."
Hopefully, we'll see the conformance passed and it start hitting end products in the near future.
