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.
