Rather, today the company is giving their GPU IP a timely refresh for the year with the announcement of the Mali-G72. ARM’s new high-end, high-performance GPU design, the Mali-G72 supplants the Mali-G71, undergoing a design revision and optimization against Mali-G71 to further improve performance and power efficiency for high-performance SoCs. Coming off of last year’s launch of the Mali-G71 and its underlying Bifrost GPU architecture, ARM isn’t doing anything quite as wild this year. The company is now invested into Bifrost for the long haul, so like the...
