We are just performing a dry-run of ARM’s GDC demos and I thought it would be good to let everyone know what can be seen at the Moscone Centre between March 19th and 21st where ARM will be demonstrating how our technology is expanding the mobile gaming experience.
As usual we will have the extremely popular ARM Wall covered in large screens showing the latest technology available on the market today. The largest screen in the middle of the wall will be showing how our mid-range GPUs (the ARM® Mali™-450 based in an Amlogic STB) are able to render in-game UIs and complex game content smoothly at 4K resolutions at vsync – the same silicon is used effectively in mobile devices. As resolutions grow, developers will be able to improve the detail and visual experiences of their mobile games if they develop with 4K in mind.
To the right of the wall our engineers will be on hand to explain to developers the details and benefits of the ASTC texture compression standard which is now available in shipping devices. Here you will be able to see the performance, visual and power benefits that have been achieved with this new Khronos-adopted format.
Below the large screens we will have a line up of devices highlighting the diverse range of gaming equipment which ships with ARM processors, all of which are able to run high end content. ARM technology is in over 95% of mobile devices and as smartphone and tablet shipments start to overtake that of PCs and consoles, ARM’s IP will be at the heart of the next generation of gaming.
Visit the ARM Tools demo pod to see the latest version of the ARM DS-5™ Streamline™ toolset that gives developers the ability to visualise how both the CPU and GPU cores are loaded. The Mali Graphics Debugger will also be on show, an invaluable tool that can be used to help optimize game content and find any potential areas that may need extra attention before release.
Finally, many of our gaming ecosystem partners will be on the ARM Booth showing their latest solutions designed to help developers succeed in mobile gaming:
Our multiplayer gaming zone will be running again this year with a wide selection of competitive games from our partners which have been optimized for mobile using the resources on show at the tools demo pod. Discover the quality of graphics that is now achievable on mobile devices, then take part in the Sports Car Challenge to win a brand new ARM Mali-T628 GPU enabled Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.
Finally, at the Smart Phone Summit (Monday and Tuesday) we will have a selection of demos on show in advance of the main show. Here you will be able to discuss the tools in great detail with the engineers who created them, see a vast selection of ARM powered products and see how the gap between mobile and console game graphics continues to narrow.
See you at the show.
PS. Did anyone spot I missed what will be on the left of the Mali wall? You will have to wait and see! Take a guess in the comments box below...
Looks fantastic. Hope the show is a raging success!
Sorry I'll miss the show while I'm on international travel. The contests look like a lot of fun. Let us know how they go!
