Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

ArkGraphics 3D developed by Huawei, is a graphics engine launched with HarmonyOS 4.0 in August 2023, ArkGraphics 3D is part of a suite of APIs under Ark Engine. It’s used within the Vulkan native development kit (NDK) rendering pipeline base for game development across a range of Huawei devices in the IoT mobile computing space that takes advantage of it’s high performance HiSilicon GPU chips that is now in-house, with Maleoon 910 from Kirin 9000s featured on HarmonyOS 4 powered Mate 60 series and MatePad 13.2 tablet that will take advantage of the complete HarmonyOS NEXT graphics stack in the upcoming HarmonyOS Galaxy Edition update this fall, end of Q3 into Q4 2024.

ArkGraphics 3D serves as the primary graphics stack for low-level game applications taking advantage of both OpenGL and Vulkan. OpenAtom warehouse developers have gathered Chinese game engine Cocos, alongside major international US-based Unity Engine and Unreal Engine China that also support of the platform for HarmonyOS NEXT, thanks to OpenHarmony base that helps create a bridge between vendors, developers frameworks and engines, toolkits with the operating system APIs taking advantage of optimising games at the system, kernel and hardware level. Huawei vertical integration development put the company in a long term edge over it’s competitors on Android platform of various chipsets, versions, frameworks, that lead to fragmentation, unoptimized applications and games. Huawei addresses these problems with their future HiSilicon powered hardware products emulating Apple’s vertical integration of the ecosystem.
