Software Development Kit OpenCL™ on ARM Linux

The Mali OpenCL SDK provides developers a framework and series of samples for developing OpenCL 1.1 application on ARM Mali based platforms such as the Mali-T600 family of GPUs. The samples cover a wide range of uses cases that utilize the Mali GPU to achieve a significant improvement in performance when compared to running on the CPU alone.

OpenCL is an open standard defined by Khronos that expose the vast parallel processing capabilities of the GPU to the developer, to achieve improvements in performance and power efficiency. The samples are supported with tutorials with step-by-step guidance that describe best practises that should be used when targeting the Mali family of GPUs.
