B.3 half_ and native_ math functions

List of half_ and native_ math functions. The half_ and native_ variants of the math functions are provided for portability.

half_exp()   native_exp()
half_exp2()   native_exp2()
half_exp10()   native_exp10()
half_log()   native_log()
half_log2()   native_log2()
half_log10()   native_log10()
half_powr()   native_powr()

Mali™ GPUs implement most of the full precision variants of the half_ and native_ math functions at full speed so you are not required to use the half_ and native_ functions.


On Mali GPUs, the following functions are faster than the full precision versions:
  • native_sin().
  • native_cos().
  • native_tan().
  • native_divide().
  • native_exp().
  • native_sqrt().
  • half_sqrt().
