Today, as the industry works on fleshing out the accelerated ray tracing ecosystem on Windows-based PCs, consoles, and eventually, onto other markets in the future, (with bigger GPUs leading the way), there’s a missing piece of the puzzle that’s yet to show up: ray tracing performance analysis software.
In ray tracing, different types of surfaces cause rays to bounce in a variety of directions, which causes the problem of ray coherency. Imagination’s PowerVR ray tracing solves this with a hardware-based ray tracker. Read on to find out more.
Mobile ray tracing is coming. But beware of false claims. Developers and consumers deserve genuine hardware-based hybrid ray tracing in their device’s SoC.
After a period out of the spotlight, ray tracing technology has recently come back into focus, taking up a lot of column inches in the
Imagination is known for its chip IP for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets and has a strong reputation as a market leader with
360° VR panorama videos have been trending on YouTube since the viewing feature was introduced in 2015. Even without a VR headset they offer a
As we said in this post last month, Imagination is once again at GDC to demonstrate our leadership in mobile graphics. On the first day of
Last year we debuted a collection of PowerVR ray tracing demos designed to improve significantly the aesthetics of real-time and offline rendering. One particularly exciting use case
The title of this post uses the word ‘revelation’ instead of ‘revolution’ because mobile game engines are only inching their way toward using full-on ray
