ARM Mali T760 brings 16 core power with energy consumption improved by a factor of four

0. phoneArena 30 Oct 2013, 12:21 posted on

ARM on Wednesday announced its third generation T-series Mali GPUs just a bit over a year since releasing the current versions; the Mali T-760 GPU offers 16 cores, but is more power efficient by a factor of four over the current T-628. ARM Frame Buffer Compression cuts the required bandwidth by more than half. The 28nm T-760 runs as fast at 700MHz with 1.39GTriangles per second and 11.2GPixels per second...

How it will be compared with the so called adreno 440 ?

Well, according to this, there should barely be a comparison.
Adreno 440 is supposed to be just a clocked up adreno 330, with 10-20 percent better performance.

But this GPU has some spectacular numbers.
Its almost 330GFLOPS which sounds absolutely crazy for a phone chip. (the Adreno 330 hits a little over 100GFLOPS )
This blows everything out of the water except for the Kepler ULP Geforce that will ship in the Tegra 5 variants, but that GPU should be significantly less power efficient than this.
ARM have proved yet again how amazingly capable they are.
Intel's ULP GPU'S are laughable compared to this.

After 50 years we will see 1000 cores.

I know that one super computer in Germany has 32 000 cores. Not bad.

German products means heavy, hard, and rough.

Uhh, r9 290x has 2816 cores so nothing new there.

nVidiea Logan (tegra 5) will have 192 (very small and power efficient) cores ...

" and includes OpenGL ES 3.0. "
will only be out by 2014 end and will only support OpenGL 3.0 ?? Logan will be out in 1H 2014 and will already support OpenGL 4.3.

It may blow away the PowerVR G6430 used in iPad air

Ofcourse because if it will be released in about a year. And by then, Imagination will have something better, there is a reason why mali GPUs are not widely used.

I think the key point here is the energy efficiency. the fact that it rumbles with the top mobile GPUs of today is just the icing. You never know what the competition will have at the end of next year either.

Ofcourse, energy efficiency is one of the most important part in a phone. But look at mali 6xx, they said that it would be best and blow everyone out of water but look at it now, it sucks, it draws a lot of power and has not the performance that was being awaited of it.

I think that article saying that ARM was going to go all-in on GPU tech was true. Buttery smoothness with a powerful GPU has become a very important metric in a smartphone these days.

I'm not so sure it will be that great compared to other solutions by the time it's actually released, but it's good to know they're putting more effort in that area.

We haven't even seen the high end Mali-T678 yet.
And the middle Mali-T628MP6 in the Galaxy Note 3 is only about 10% slower than Adreno 330.
So it's unfair to say that Mali-T6xx series GPUs suck.

Yes, maybe the term ''suck'' was an exaggeration but you have to admit that mali is always behind power vr. And you canĀ“t see mali GPU in any small phones, only phablets or tablets where it can benefit from its need of big thermal headroom. And if the mali in note 3 is 10% behind adreno 330 then it means that it is about 25-35% slower than G6430 which is in A7 and the G6430 has a smaller thermal headroom and that means that power vr is again faster and more efficient.

Inside the Note 4? What are you even smoking? The power consumption of that GPU is way too much for a smartphone, not to mention that no single game will be able to fully take advantage of those unified shaders.

I can feel the power of this cpu. Oh and inb4 the ifans say the 5S cpu is better than this with magical benchmarks.

Can't wait for the offscreen testing benchmark scores.

Magical benchmarks? You are thinking of Samsung.

Wow well soon see games like crysis running on smart phones.

The bottom line is that this GPU will be overclocked by OEM's thus offsetting any battery advantage in order to increase benchmark scores.

Why the hell would you need to overclock a gpu like this? Save that for the hackers...

For an unreleased mobile GPU there sure a lot of Apple fans predicting its gloom and doom.

I wonder what would happen if Apple announce to adopt this chip instead of the usual power-vr gpu? All they need to do is to give Apple a better discount make it a more attractive deal. Tim Cook is a renowned for his components sourcing abilities driving higher profit margins.
