Mobile devices have become an integral part of our lives, revolutionizing the way we create, consume, and interact with digital content. Arm, a prominent technology company, has been at the forefront of this transformation, empowering users with limitless possibilities. With a strong emphasis on performance and efficiency, Arm continues to develop cutting-edge solutions to meet the growing compute demands of our digital lifestyles. Today, Arm announces the arrival of Arm Total Compute Solutions 2023 (TCS23), a comprehensive platform that sets new standards for mobile computing, offering unprecedented premium capabilities for smartphones.
TCS23 represents a complete package of the latest Intellectual Property (IP) meticulously designed and optimized to work seamlessly together. This includes the highly anticipated Arm Immortalis GPU, based on the innovative 5th Generation GPU architecture, which promises unparalleled visual experiences. Complementing this powerful GPU is a new cluster of Armv9 CPUs, ensuring superior performance and leadership in next-generation artificial intelligence (AI). Furthermore, Arm introduces enhancements to deliver more accessible software, empowering millions of Arm developers to unlock their full potential.
The Immortalis GPU: Pushing Boundaries of Visual Computing
At the heart of TCS23 lies the groundbreaking Arm Immortalis GPU. Built on the brand-new 5th Gen GPU architecture, this GPU aims to redefine the graphics pipeline, enabling the next generation of high geometry games, real-time 3D applications, and delivering console-like experiences on mobile devices. A key feature of the 5th Gen architecture is Deferred Vertex Shading (DVS), revolutionizing dataflow and facilitating scalability for larger core counts and higher performance points. The Immortalis-G720, Arm’s most performant and efficient GPU ever, showcases a remarkable 15 percent improvement in performance and efficiency compared to its predecessor, elevating visual experiences to new heights.
Expanding Graphics Capabilities with Mali-G720 and Mali-G620
In addition to the Immortalis-G720, Arm expands its world-class portfolio of GPUs with the introduction of the Arm Mali-G720 and Mali-G620. These GPUs aim to bring premium graphics features to a wider range of consumer devices, providing an immersive visual experience previously reserved for flagship smartphones. Arm remains committed to accelerating innovation in graphics technology, ensuring that more users can enjoy enhanced graphics and seamless performance across various devices.
Unleashing CPU Performance Leadership for AI
TCS23 places a strong emphasis on CPU performance, particularly in the realm of artificial intelligence. The introduction of the Armv9 Cortex CPU compute cluster, showcasing double-digit performance gains and significant efficiency improvements for the third consecutive year, solidifies Arm’s commitment to leadership in CPU performance. At the forefront of this cluster is the Arm Cortex-X4, the fastest CPU ever built by Arm, offering a remarkable 15 percent increase in performance compared to its predecessor while consuming 40 percent less power. This leap in performance and efficiency opens up new possibilities for next-generation AI and machine learning applications, pushing the boundaries of on-device experiences.
Delivering Software and Security
Arm recognizes the importance of providing developers with the tools and capabilities to write secure, faster, and simpler software. With the exponential growth of AI processing capabilities on smartphones, Arm supports developers by enhancing ML capabilities through their open-source software libraries, such as Arm NN and Arm Compute Library.
