    ARM's Mali Mobile GPU to Equal PS3 and Xbox360 Graphics Power in 18 Months


    The mobile chipset maker ARM, is working hard to advance mobile gaming as quickly as possible, and they claim that within 18 months their mobile GPUs (Graphical Processing Units) will have the same graphical power as a PlayStation 3 or Xbox360. They further explained that although the graphical prowess of their chips may reach those lofty heights that soon, there are other factors to consider with mobile gaming that they are working on also. They elaborated that although Moore's Law has allowed them to advance their hardware to that level so quickly, unfortunately, battery technology doesn't follow Moore's Law. They explained that although shrinking the process node helps, to further combat the problem of massive battery consumption, they are also working on advanced battery management techniques, and a multi-GPU design that only powers up GPUs when they are needed. ARM shared that their newest tech is the Mali T604 chip, which is being sampled now with products set to appear in 2012, and will be the first chip to enable GPGPU capability and will also support OpenCL.

    That's pretty amazing to think that within a couple years, we will have smartphones and tablets that rival our home gaming consoles. The inevitable evolution of technology marches on...

    OK great, so why not put a bigger battery in these smartphones?

    I've had two different phones with aftermarket batteries that were only 20%
    bigger. These fit into the exiting battery wells so why don't the manufactures
    do this?

    Yeah I'm not sitting at home controlling my car in gran turismo by holding onto the tv and tapping the corners.. Why would I play a graphic intensive game on my phone when I cover a third of the screen with my hands?

    someone wants to revolutionize mobile gaming? give us bluetooth controllers.

    I'd be happy if you, say, took the xperia play controller, and added a mount for the phone.

    I imagine in the future you will plug the phone into your TV Bluetooth in a controller and play games.

    As far as the battery I am not sure on the number of phones made per model but if the production numbers are high enough saving pennies on a battery can equal hundreds of thousands of dollars. Plus then you can sell extended batteries and make even more money.
    Stock Droid Bionic. Lovin' the 4G.

    OG Droid for my son to watch videos on, and not put sticky fingers onto my new phone.
