ARM Mali-T604 Graphics performance beyond 1080p

Posted by Charbax – March 3, 2013

ARM runs the Epic Citadel benchmark at 55fps at 2560x1600 (4 megapixels = 2x 1080p) on the Mali-T604 while on Intel's latest mobile platform, that same benchmark runs 10fps slower at a resolution of only 1280x720 (less than 4x lower resolution?). ARM also shows the improvements when using the Mali-T604 with Open GL ES 3.0 which hopefully is soon going to be added in Android, providing higher quality 3D graphics features.

Chromebook on Android

Here are my expectations for Google's rumored upcoming Chrome OS laptop/tablet hybrid:

- 12.85" Pixel Qi LCD, Google sponsored, to be available to all other Android hardware makers as a new component. (Plastics based flexible unbreakable LCD for thinner lighter waterproof dustproof unbreakable build)

- Optical lamination allows for outdoor readable capacitive Pixel Qi LCD. Otherwise IR based Neonode touch can work.

- 20 million initial production batch, enough to make a significant mark on the market, next batch can be 100 million units.

- Android 5.0 to support Chrome OS on top of Android. Same for Ubuntu on top of Android. Multi-booting becomes standard feature of Android. It's not really multi-booting, it's enabling to run alternative Linux OSes on top of the base Linux OS of Android.

- $200, available worldwide on day 1. Second batch can be sold for $150 or $100. Schools can get rebates if they order one for every child. Google can subsidize a few of those millions to be used by Children in developing countries through the One Laptop Per Child project.

- 16GB Flash with SD slots and potentially a 2.5" HDD slot.

- 25 hours battery life. 200 grams flat battery dock doubles battery life to 50 hours.

- Swivel screen. Super slim keyboard can hide behind screen for tablet mode.

- ARM Cortex-A15, either OMAP5 with SGX544 or Exynos5 with Mali-T604. Maybe another comparable ARM Processor.

- Modem slot, all types modems available as options, 3G+, LTE, White Spaces, easily user swapable. There is space for an internal usb modem too.

Let me know what you think of this rumored Google hybrid here or at my Google+ thread.
