Samsung Exynos and ARM at GDC 2013
May 6, 2013
Samsung Exynos processors made several appearances at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) last month as part of the demo lineup hosted by our partner, ARM Ltd. ARM showed off the high performance of its Mali Graphics IP with demos running on Exynos 5 Dual-based devices like the Google Nexus 10 tablet and Arndale development board. We wanted to share some of these demos so you can get a better idea of what Exynos brings to the table in terms of graphics performance and mobile gaming.
ARM® Mali™ SeeMore Demo on Exynos 5 Dual's Arndale Board
At GDC 2013, ARM Senior Software Engineer Stacy Smith presented the Mali SeeMore demo on an Insignal Arndale Board. This community development platform features an Exynos 5 Dual processor with a dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A15 CPU and a quad-core Mali™-T604 GPU. SeeMore demonstrates a combination of effects that ARM has coded to show off OpenGL ES 3.0 features.
You'll see firsthand the graphical performance you can expect from devices running on the Exynos 5 Dual with Mali-T604 GPU. Highlighted features include procedural animation effects, texture projection and constantly shifting lighting produced by the Enlighten engine. Through the SeeMore demo, it's apparent that the ARM components in the Exynos 5 Dual processor contribute to a lifelike, atmospheric feel in immersive mobile games.
Havok™ Project Anarchy Demo on Exynos 5 Dual's Google Nexus 10
While at GDC, Havok™ Software Engineer Peter Wos demoed Project Anarchy on a Google Nexus 10 tablet, also built on an Exynos 5 Dual processor with Mali-T604 GPU. Project Anarchy is a complete game engine toolset for mobile app developers, available for free on both Android and iOS platforms. In combination with Mali GPUs like the one in the Exynos 5 Dual, Havok is providing mobile developers with more advanced technology to create high-quality graphics and high-performance games.
