Amidst the backdrop of Computex 2016 and alongside their new Cortex-A73 CPU, ARM is announcing their next generation GPU architecture, Bifrost. A significant update to ARM’s GPU architecture, Bifrost will first be deployed in ARM’s Mali-G71 GPU.
Today we're taking a look at the Bifrost architecture and Mali-G71 to better understand the changes ARM has made. With a shift over from an ILP-centric design to a TLP-centric design, Bifrost marks a major change in ARM's GPU architecture, and will help ARM prepare its GPUs for future graphics and compute workloads.
