WHAT: The ARM® Mali™-200 graphics processing unit is the first GPU on today’s market to pass Khronos conformance testing at up to 1080p HDTV resolutions. This brings accredited graphics acceleration to the broadest range of consumer devices, from next-generation set-top boxes to mobile devices with TV Out, to high-definition TVs. ARM is enabling its Partners to deliver attention-grabbing screen displays on all next-generation consumer electronics devices used at home and on the move.
ARM is dedicated to the support of open standards, enabling positive market growth, and the Mali-200 GPU demonstrates ARM’s continued technology leadership in graphics acceleration.
About ARM Mali Complete Graphics Stack
ARM delivers the most widely adopted graphics IP solutions, with 21 licensees of Mali graphics products and counting. ARM is the only vendor to provide a full range of graphics solutions, from the world’s smallest GPU to the highest performance GPU IP at more than one billion pixels per second, coupled with a complete stack of middleware and drivers and supported by a graphics ecosystem that harnesses the reach and power of the ARM Connected Community™.
WHY: The Khronos Group OpenGL ES 2.0 Conformance Tests, announced in May 2008, verify the OpenGL ES 2.0 API and its companion shader programming language, GLSL ES. Only once these tests are passed can a product be described as OpenGL ES 2.0 conformant.
WHEN: The Mali-200 GPU achieved conformance on July 12, 2008.
