Towards the end of last year, Apple released the latest version of its Apple MacBook Pro and Macbook Air laptops. This release was notable as with these brand-new laptops Apple made a significant change – the processor inside was based on its own M1 chip rather than the Intel architecture that it had been using since 2006. Since its release, the Apple M1 has been widely hailed for its performance, outstripping Intel in all the major benchmarks and all in a cool, quiet package with low power consumption.
My first encounter with the PowerVR GPU was helping the then VideoLogic launch boards for Matrox in Europe. Not long after I joined the company, working on the rebrand to Imagination Technologies and promoting both our own VideoLogic-branded boards and those of our partners using ST’s Kyro processors. There were tens of board partners but only for one brief moment did we have two partners in the desktop space: NEC and ST.
B-Series uses multi-core to deliver an incredible 33 core variations for the widest range of options at all levels of performance points. From the smallest IoT cores up to the mid-range desktop equivalent B-Series an outperform mid-range next-gen consoles. Learn more in this blog post.
Introducing the XS family of GPU for automotive. XS is the first GPU IP compliant with ISO 26262, offering a new methodology and architecture for functional safety with specific safety-optimised mechanisms designed to protect against transient and permanent faults. Tuned on real-world ADAS applications, it offers unrivalled performance for graphics and compute in next-generation cars.
Today, we are proud to introduce IMG A-Series. It’s not only a range of new cores, but it introduces a new GPU architecture too. The headline figure? A-Series is 2.5x faster (or 150%) for the same area and same power compared to our currently shipping PowerVR GPUs.
This post is another summary from our PowerVR Performance Recommendations focused on eliminating performance bottlenecks by balancing different GPU workloads.
