GPUs address mobile, TV, automotive and IoT devices
22 February 2016
Imagination Technologies announced the new PowerVR Series8XE family of GPUs designed to significantly reduce costs while still delivering great performance.
The past year has done wonders for affordable consumer electronics devices. There has been a major boost in areas like Latin America or Asia where many hero brands — both national and international — have introduced smartphones, tablets, 4K TVs or media streaming devices at very exciting prices.
The first two GPUs from the Series8XE family are PowerVR GE8200 and GE8300 – offering two and four pixels per clock, respectively.
The new Series8XE family enables silicon partners and OEMs to upgrade the feature set of mobile SoCs to OpenGL ES 3.2 and Vulkan, therefore ensuring that these devices can support the latest applications and future advancements in APIs.
Major improvements have been made in the fillrate capabilities that translate to 60% – 100% better performance per mm2 for Series8XE compared to competing solutions. The enhanced Series8XE microarchitecture also helps to create GPU configurations that are up to 30 – 45% smaller versus competing solutions while maintaining the same performance.
