ARM has just unveiled the next gen Mali GPU, dubbed Mali-T658. The GPU is said to deliver desktop-class performance, offering 10 times the processing power of the Mali 400, which is used in the Samsung Galaxy S II.
According to ARM, the Mali-T658, should also offer four times the performance of the Mali-T604, which was previously announced, but is still to enter mass production. That’s the T-604 that is rumored to feature in the next generation Exynos chipsets and we might see in the Galaxy S III.
There’s no saying when we might see the Mali-T658 in an actual smartphone or a tablet, but we doubt it will be before late 2012 or even early 2013. Samsung, Fujitsu, LG and Nufront have already pledged their support for the newly announced GPU so there should be no shortage of devices having it whenever it comes out.
