ARM just released two new processors aimed at improving the graphical performances on devices. The released processors are the Mali-G51, and the Mali-V61, and both are available for licensing.

The Mali-G51 is a GPU aimed at “enabling premium features and VR on mainstream devices.” ARM designed Mali-G51 with the minimum silicon area, in order to minimize costs, and make this GPU more attractive to device makers.

This processor can project resolutions up to 4K, and as we said, it’s main goal is to make VR and AR available on all mainstream devices using it. The Mali-G51 brings many advantages compared to its predecessor,  the Mali-T830, including 60% more performance per square mm, and is 30% smaller in size.

The second launched processor, the Mali-V61 VPU, aims to “address real-time video applications for Generation Z”. What ARM wants to accomplish with this Visual Processing Unit is providing a better experience for real-time video, which includes quality 4K streaming.

One of the Mali-V61’s main features is its high data transmission saving rate. Namely, this processor can save up to 50% when playing HD videos. When it comes to scaling, Mali-V61 can scale from 1089p60 on a single core, up to 4K120 on multiple cores.

Both processors are already available to manufacturers, so we should expect devices powered by them to appear on the market soon.
