The ARM Mali series of GPU’s come in a number of versions. These range from single core to 4 core GPU processors. The ARM Mali-400 MP is an OpenGL ES 2.0 able GPU and was released in 2008. The GPU is in the bottom range of the Mali 4 series of processors. The chip is intended to be used in tablets and smartphones.
The chip has independent CPU as well as GPU power management which in its turn will maximize the battery life on your phone and also minimize heat dissipation which can become an issue when you play games for a long period of time.
