ARM presents Mali-DP650 processor
The company ARM has presented the new Mali-DP650 processor, which ARM claims is the fastest and most energy-efficient display processor with support for 4K resolutions. The new chip will soon find its place in new generation smartphones and other similar devices.
The new Mali-DP650 processor supports various resolutions but works best at 2.5K resolutions, which includes WQXGA (2560 x 1600 pixels) and WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels). The chip also allows a device that uses it to output content on an external monitor and at 4K resolution supports up to 60 FPS.
The new chip also comes with support for numerous features such as scaling, rotation and more. In addition the chip has a very small die, which may lead to lower prices. The AXI bus has been doubled to 128-bits now, so this is a step in the right direction.
The Mali-DP650 processor has full support for Android 6.0. As to market availability, we should see the new chip very soon.
