Products with ARM’s next-generation Mali-T604 and Mali-T658 graphics are expected to ship later this year, offering higher performance graphics for smartphones, tablets and other high-end mobile devices.

But ARM also has plans to bring better graphics to mid-range smartphones and tablets.

The company’s new Mali-450 design basically offers up to twice the performance of ARM’s existing Mali-400 graphics by doubling the top number of cores available from 4 to 8.

ARM Mali-450 roadmap

Mali 400 graphics are currently used in dozens of Android phones and tablets, and will likely continue to stick around for a while.

According to EETimes,  Mali-400 graphics with between 1 and 4 processor cores will be sufficient for lighter tasks, while the Mali-450 with 5 to 8 graphics cores can be used in higher end devices.
