ARM submits OpenCL 1.1 Full Profile conformance test to Khronos Group for Mali T604 GPU
August 02, 2012 by Tony DeYoung
ARM announced they have submitted to Khronos for their OpenCL 1.1 Full Profile conformance tests results for the MaliTM-T604 GPU. What is unique here is that this is a Full as opposed to Embedded Profile, even though the primary target is the embedded and mobile markets.
Key features that define the full profile include:
- Native support for 64-bit integer maths (including vector data types and operations). This helps in areas such as pointer arithmetic for large address spaces and can benefit many applications including multimedia encoders, decoders and encryption software.
- Hardware accelerated support for 3D images such as volumetric modeling.
- Same precision and accuracy as desktop implementations
- Built-in atomic functions accelerated in hardware.
