ARM Mali-G52 and Mali-G31 GPUs launched

ARM expands its Mali GPU range with two new offerings. The ARM Mali-G52 and ARM Mali-G31. The former one offers High area efficiency while the latter falls under Ultra-Low power GPU category.

Starting with ARM Mali-G31, its ARM’s very first Ultra-Efficient GPU which is based on Bifrost architecture. It not only offers significant energy and area saving but also supports very latest API’s. Statistically speaking, the G31 is 20% smaller that usual mainstream GPU but offers 20% improved performance density for complex workloads. Company says that it has 12% improvement for the growing complexity of UI. Moreover, it is ARM’s smallest GPU to support Open GI ES 3.2 and Vulkan and also first to integrate AFBC.

ARM Mali-G52 is ARM’s second Bifrost-based mainstream GPU. It not only offers premium visual experiences but also comes with heightened Machine Learning capabilities.  It offers 30% more performance density, 15% better energy efficiency and 3 X ML Capabilities. It also supports UI complexities for next Gen Smart TV’s and bring premium content like AR, Gaming and ML to Mainstream.
