ARM works with the ecosystem to support the game developers to take optimally advantage of the ARM Mali Graphics, GPU Compute. ARM is to be in the core of the future of Gaming. Already dominating in Smartphones and Tablets, most Smart TVs and Set-top-boxes also use ARM, most of them are becoming Home Consoles now also, quickly closing the gap with home consoles (from Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft). In the very near future, we will probably see most high-end video games running on ARM Powered devices. Here showing the Unity Engine running at 1080p smoothly at full framerates on Exynos5420 with ARM Mali-T628 with OpenGL ES 3.0. Working closely with developers, working closely with Google collaborating on the tools for development of advanced video games. Supporting the most advanced video-games on the latest Android.
Archos releases the Archos Gamepad 2 ($199/179€ MSRP) on Rockchip RK3188 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 28nm HKMG 1.6Ghz, with 2GB RAM, 8GB or 16GB Flash storage (perhaps more storage options to be available for people who want to store many Android games on built-in Flash storage and not on MicroSD?), 1280×800 super high quality IPS display, new improved Gamepad buttons, new improved design compared to Archos Gamepad from last year (2, 3, 4), 5000mAh battery for long enough battery life, Mini-HDMI output, USB host/slave, Bluetooth (nice for controllers too when connected to HDTV). Basically this is better than a portable open Ouya. The future of Android gaming is nice. If I do get the chance to test the device for a bit, let me know what I should test on it. Should I test certain emulator performance such as N64? Dreamcast? Which games?
