There are four new chips in all. They consist of a Mali-G57 GPU, the Ethos-N57 and Ethos-N37 NPUs, and Mali-D37 DPU. All of these are considered mainstream parts, with the goal of bringing premium experiences to everyday and ultra-efficient consumer devices, though partnerships with companies that license ARM's intellectual property (IP).
"Once the preserve of premium devices, immersive experiences such as AR, high-fidelity gaming, and
new AI-based use cases across mobile and home are now being demanded by the mainstream market.
Giving developers access to high-performance AI and media IP solutions optimized for everyday devices
enables new AI driven use cases, with features such as voice recognition and always-on capabilities, no
longer unique to mobile," ARM explains.
ARM Delivers New Processing IP For Mainstream Devices
"AI intelligence is now everywhere from gaming devices to digital TVs (DTVs), and increased compute at
the endpoint is required to allow for these responsive experiences. For example, intelligent experiences
in DTVs range from smart assistant voice commands, real-time translation for shows in another
language, and face recognition to enhance parental controls," ARM says.
Some of the claims are therefore the same. Specifically, ARM says the Mali-G57 offers 30 percent better power efficiency, 30 percent more performance density, and 60 percent better machine learning performance, compared to the Mali-G52 on the same process node.
How this all plays out in consumer devices remains to be seen, though it's nice to see ARM attempting to bolster the mainstream segment with advanced capabilities.
