UI content is inherently dynamic
−
−
−
−
Unlike Games (which use pre-cached images/textures)
User content can/will change at any time
Therefore UI must refresh continuously in case new content emerges
Requires high speed (533Mhz) and wide (64-bit) memory bus to ensure high frame rates
Recommend Dual Core + 64-bit Memory Bus
User Content is dynamic and
(potentially) always changing.
Especially true of streaming
movies, YouTube, pictures,
home moviews
User expects their ‘latest’ content
to be instantly visible when
scrolling (either touch or via
remote with TV)
Thumbnails must be visible and
smooth as they scroll left to right.
TM

UI requires high resolution support  1080p TV or LCD is now the norm
•
•
1080p30 fps content is becoming a standard offering from websites and streaming
•
1080p60 is around the corner
•
Must be able to decode h.264 High Profile 1080p at high bitrates (for user content
decode as well as for video streaming over the net)
•
Must be able to support newer 1080p TVs. Consumer devices starting to hit >1080p LCDs (iPAD HD) Requires
large memory space, fast display capabilities, in hardware rotation/scaling
•
Advantage Freescale i.MX 6: up to 4XGA, dual display engines, 64bit memory space @ 533Mhz
Access to fast CPU MIPS  used for complicated transforms to augment visual experience
•
•
CPU cores useful to add in additional transforms that don’t map well to 3D unit
•
Morphing effects and some fluid dynamics for innovative UI effects
•
CPU cores can also be used to augment 3D unit and act as a ‘secondary’ 3D unit
•
Advantage Freescale i.MX 6: up to Quad core Cortex A9 at 1.2Ghz  nearly 5Ghz of CPU horsepower

Benchmarking 3D game performance is tricky
−
Dependent upon the 3D HW, the CPU speed and memory BW
−
Must balance all three to get best performance
Review websites use generally available benchmarks to rate tablets

Video Playback or Streaming performance is
highly dependent upon screen resolution
−
•
•
1080p playback on a 1024x768 screen takes less bandwidth
than 1080p on a 1920x1080 LCD
Available Memory bandwidth on 32bit DDR is ~1600MB/s
−
64bit memory is up to 3200MB/s
−
This assumes 50% utilization of the interface (generous)
Total Memory B/W required for 1080p playback
−
On 1024x768 screen: ~800MB/s
−
On 1920x1080 screen: ~1100MB/s
−
If performing parallel tasks, will add to memory bandwidth needs
−
System activity+screen size Can vary memory bandwidth by up to 500MBs
Recommend Dual Core + 64-bit Memory Bus for 1080p Playback

•
Size of scene buffer unknown before rendering
−
•
Good rendering method for baseline GUI/3D Apps with smaller object count (less
details)
−
•
Possible overflow if scene requires more data than expected
More bandwidth efficient than FMR in simple (yesterday) use cases
For next generation dynamic scenes in new and future applications with lots of
objects, details and post-processing effects, tile based Chunkers require multipass memory access to constantly process changing 3D/scene data

All results include power at the chip (cores, accelerators, peripherals, DDR I/O)
as well as the power consumption of the external DDR3 ICs.
Power application notes listed in the presentation contain
the full breakouts for the chip and DDR3. Note that use of LPDDR2
memory will substantially reduce memory IC power consumption
