ARM’s multi-core graphics chip supports Khronos OpenGL spec
ARM has announced that its Mali graphics processor conforms to the Khronos OpenGL ES 2.0 API at resolutions up to 1080p.
The latest multi-core Mali-400 MP GPU has also passed the tests specified by The Khronos Group.
The Mali-400 GPU has achieved Khronos conformance for all of the three major graphics APIs required by ARM Partners: OpenVG, OpenGL ES 1.1 and OpenGL ES 2.0.
ARM said it has 21 licensees of Mali GPUs. It also has a complete stack of Mali graphics middleware and drivers complements the Mali GPU family.
The Khronos Group OpenGL ES 2.0 Conformance Tests has used by silicon vendors to verify the OpenGL ES 2.0 API and its companion shader programming language, GLSL ES. Only once these tests are passed can a product be described as OpenGL ES 2.0 conformant.
