How much is the maximum resolution of texture supported by Mali GPU?

Even when enough VRAM would be available, the resolution of conventional texture is limited to 16K by 16K. Is the limit set by the graphics APIs or hardware? Is there such limit of texture resolution in Mali GPU or its driver? If yes, which factors would be affect how much the limit is?

    The hardware specifies the lowest legal "max size" allowed' vendors must meet or exceed that.

    It's an implementation-defined limit, so from a user point of view you can't tell the difference whether its hardware or driver (and it's mostly irrelevant which - the behavior is the same from the programmer's model point of view).
