New ARM Mali-450 GPU to bring enhanced graphics performance to smartphones on a budget
posted by Daniel P. / Jun 13, 2012, 5:43 AM
Galaxy S III, and, of course, manufacturers can overclock Mali-450 in its turn to achieve a significant performance boost.This will put its performance on par with the overclocked Mali-400 in the
The new GPU is aimed towards volume markets, since the high-end for future smartphones and tablets with ARM chips is reserved for Mali-T604 and the scorching Mali-T658, both of which will support the upcoming OpenGL ES 3.0 environment, while Mali-450 won't.
Skrymir, circa 2014, and we don't even dare to imagine the possibilities of that one. Mali-450, however, will bring powerful graphics to mid-range phones that won't break the bank, and we are all for that.

wow, they have a whole Viking legends thing going on. mali, skyrymir, midguard. :) Flagships are going mali 6xx. this is for midgrade phones. Thats awesome, as its one heck of a processor. the bad news is, that means that the OC'ed mali400 in the SGS3 is going to be considered "midgrade" soon. Which is also kinda neat since its top of the pile right now.

Yes.. But i do think that the upcoming iPhone will regain its top spot on GPU department (PowerVR543MP2).. Then the Galaxy S4 will beat it again, and the cycle goes on.. GPU is a two man horse right now, it's either Galaxy S series or iPhone.. with Tegra 3 on the 3rd spot only because of their Tegra games optimization.. I'm starting to think that Galaxy S III was just an incredimental upgrade to S II, and the Galaxy S IV will be the real deal.

The overclocked Mali 400MP in Galaxy S3 beats the iPhone 4S SGX543MP2 and the future iPhone 5 SGX543MP2, I doubt they need a more powerful GPU Apple. Plus they wouldn't care if they took the lead anyways. The Adreno 320 is a beast though, similar performance to SGX543MP4. GLBenchmark shows it all.

This will be good for the next galaxy note. Nokia is also a very big ARM fan and use the ARM 11 in so many phones. I think its time for them to use the mali 450 instead of the broadcom gpus they use but i doubt it and ad far as i can see Samsung is the top potential customer
