The Mali-G77 processor — the first intellectual property built on the new Valhall architecture — brings high-end gaming to premium smartphones at a time when “revenues from mobile gaming overtook revenues on console and PC-based gaming for the very first time.”

Compared to the previous generation, which was built on the outdated Bifrost architecture, the Mali-G77 is claimed to increase both energy efficiency and performance density by 30% and improve machine learning by 60%, together equating to a 40% improvement on peak graphics performance.

These high-end graphics aid in the GPU’s ability to adopt evolving augmented reality technology “that will transform mobile gaming and other mobile user experiences.” Furthermore, the improved machine learning capacity greatly enhances the GPU’s intelligence, allowing tasks to be performed on-device. This is more efficient and more secure than sending them to the cloud for processing.

Arm has not announced when the GPU will launch, but you can expect it to be integrated into upcoming Nvidia, Qualcomm and Samsung processors. RGA/JB
