This presentation explores how the flexibility and scalability of Midgard allows a GPU design to be targeted precisely at the rapidly evolving requirements for embedded GPUs. We will examine the particular challenges of delivering high-end GPU performance on an SoC – where special consideration must be given to the many constraints of the SoC, such as limited bus-bandwidth, shared on-chip memories and most importantly – the need to conserve power. The presentation will highlight the importance of designing both hardware and software at the system level – to ensure optimum SoC efficiency.

Attend this webinar to:
Discover the importance of taking the “system-level” approach with both hardware and software design to maximize efficiency
Gain a better understanding  of the trade-offs necessary when designing an embedded GPU into an SoC
Learn about the latest developments in the ARM® Mali™ GPU Midgard architecture
