    I just read Andre's writeup at Anandtech about the new Mali G78 https://www.anandtech.com/show/15816/arm-announces-the-malig78-evolution-to-24-cores but there doesn't seem to be a relevant thread about Valhall in general.

    Either way for G78 specifically:

    1. The improvements even on paper compared to G77 sound rather boring. Is ARM sensing that GPU IP is slowly dying and they're not interested into pushing the envelope any further?

    2. For the tiler/geometry block asynchronous frequencies: without knowing how high the difference in frequency really is, it's difficult to guess if more than one tiling blocks would had been a better alternative IHMO.

    HiSilicon and mediatek are the only company using mali gpus, no ? Samsung is moving to amd, and others are in house or power vr ? If the demand for high end gpu is pretty low, then as you said, I guess they're not interested into pushing the envelope any further.

    Mediatek should be the only big customer left for ARM in the longrun for smartphone/tablet GPU IP. IMG's presense these days in new Mediatek SoCs must be small and it sounds like it's constantly shrinking.
