The Mali T760 is designed for high end devices, while the T720 is aimed for “high-growth” markets, i.e. mid-range SoCs. Lead licensees for the new GPUs include MediaTek, Rockchip and LG.
The T760 can even be used in HPC environments and it can scale to 16 cores, while the old Mali T678 could only deal with eight cores. Performance per core was improved as well and it’s should end up 400 percent faster than the T604. It will initially target TSMC’s 28nm HPM process and eventually 16nm FinFET.
The T720 is a cost-optimized solution for entry-level and mid-range devices. It’s 150 percent more efficient than the Mali 400, its die area was reduced by about 30 percent, while performance is 50 percent higher than previous generation low-end ARM GPUs.
