ARM has announced new display technologies so as to improve the VR and HDR. The company states that the challenges represented by VR, HDR, and multi-window required a new approach, so they’ve created a new architecture Komeda, which comprises of the Mali-D71, CoreLink MMU-600, and Assertive Display 5.
The Mali-D71 is an optimized display processor that tries to slow down the performance issues that appear due to higher frame rates. It provides 30% system power savings by reducing the GPU workloads by performing a composition, rotation, high-quality scaling. It’s optimized for 4K 120 fps operations, making it an ideal candidate for VR applications.
The CoreLink MMU-600 takes care of the data management. It also secures content protection for your premium media. The Assertive Display 5 can produce HDR content even on an SDR display. Well, this is indeed a big claim and we will get to know about it only in the future. It also comes with night mode/blue light filtering in-hardware. It can improve visibility in sunlight while power, all without touching the actual GPU.
