Reaching new levels of performance.
Do More With Multi-Core
IMG B-Series takes all of the advances of IMG A-Series, the fastest GPU IP ever created, and offers new configurations with even higher levels of performance. IMG B-Series also delivers new levels of performance for mid-range and entry-level cores. Whether you need a compute-focused core for ADAS, cloud computing or gaming or a fill rate focused core for driving high-resolution displays, IMG B-Series offers an optimised GPU IP solution ideally suited to your needs.
IMG B-Series makes use of a new multi-core architecture – enabling our customers to link together multiple GPU cores to achieve increasing levels of performance
IMG B-Series Multi-Core Demo
Demonstrating unprecedented levels of performance with the new IMG BXT multi-core (MC).
IMG BXT MC cores deliver industry-leading levels of performance for higher-quality effects and higher-resolution rendering. With up to 6 TFLOPS of compute performance and up to 30% lower power draw than previous generations, BXT enables solutions that scale from mobile to the cloud.
IMG B-Series Tile Region Protection Demo
Showcasing safety-critical rendering on the new IMG BXS GPU using Tile Region Protection (TRP). TRP delivers higher performance for safety-critical rendering and an easier transition from QM to the next generation of safe HMIs.
IMG B-Series GPU Core Families
IMG B-Series contains four GPU categories to fulfil the needs of a wide range of markets.
BXT offers an exceptional step forward from A-Series, delivering the industry’s highest performance per mm² making it a compelling solution for top-tier designs.
Driving beautiful high-resolution displays
BXE offers up to 25% area saving compared to previous generation Imagination cores, now with up to 2.5x the fill rate density compared to the competition. BXE scales from 1 to 16 pixels per clock (PPC), with optimised BXE cores which can easily deliver complex 1080P and 4K UIs for DTV, IoT and smart home devices. The highest specification BXE offers never-before-seen performance for pixel-focused IP enabling customers to target 8K displays with optimal silicon area.
We offer support for the Vulkan® API throughout the range, enabling developers to maximise performance on even the smallest cores.
Incredible graphics experiences
BXM is a range of high-efficiency performance cores, providing an optimal balance of fill rate and compute in a compact silicon area, making it the perfect choice for mid-range affordable mobile. They are also ideal for complex UI solutions such as DTV with twice the render resolution of competing designs.
The future of automotive GPUs
The BXS family is the first range of ISO 26262-capable GPU IP, making them the most advanced automotive GPU IP cores ever created. With BXS we have used our in-depth understanding of the industry to deliver performance gains of up to 60% over consumer B-Series parts. BXS produces a range of configurations optimised for uses such as complex car rendering for premium surround-view and dashboard applications, through to delivering highly programmable compute for ADAS compute use cases. All BXS cores are ideally paired with our neural network accelerators for rapid, low-power inferencing performance.
Maximum flexibility or maximum bandwidth reduction.
The choice is yours.
IMGIC technology is a new technology that builds on our industry-leading PVRIC4 to compress images into and out of the GPU to increase performance. Joining our lossless or 50% visually lossless modes are two more options:
- A 75% bandwidth-capped lossless mode, to prioritise quality
- A 25% mode to prioritise extreme bandwidth saving.
This gives more flexibility for SoC designers to optimise either for performance or to reduce system cost, while maintaining a great user experience.
IMGIC is available across the entire IMG B-Series range, bringing the benefits of our industry-leading image compression to even the smallest cores.
Imagination offers the leading solution for premium, mid-range and entry-level mobile with the best performance per area and the lowest power. Imagination works with a wide range of game developers to make sure games run optimally on our GPUs to deliver the best gaming experience.
At the high-end, our larger IMG B-Series cores deliver an incredible 6 TFLOPS – the kind of performance that makes these GPUs suitable for PCI-E form factor designs. We’re bringing our low-power, high-efficiency architecture to a new range of platforms focused on exceptional performance and flexibility.
Automotive safety cores
Following on from the launch of our XS family we are announcing the first BXS cores, specifically designed to address the needs of the automotive market by bringing safety-critical graphics and compute capabilities to market with multi-core scaling and redundancy for the very first time.
Consumer and industrial cores
Our BXE series delivers a scalable range of fill rate focused cores with great performance and low bandwidth to enable cost-effective GUI solutions from 720p up to 8K. This is possible thanks to multi-core deployment of our GPUs resulting in reduced silicon costs and software continuity.

IMG B-Series GPU IP Launch Keynote
Join this webinar to learn about the exciting new IMG B-Series GPU product range and the technology behind it. The IMG B-Series contains four product families with each reaching new levels of performance to give more choice and flexibility to SoC designers. Learn how features such as multi-core and ISO 26262 conformance make Imagination GPU IP applicable to new markets such as cloud computing and ADAS/autonomous driving. IMG B-Series builds on the exceptional leap made with A-Series GPU IP recognised around the industry as the leading solution for high-performance GPU coupled with low power characteristics.
Welcome to the first in a series of articles where we explore how Imagination and Humanising Autonomy, a UK-based behaviour AI company, are teaming up to deliver practical, real-world AI-driven active safety. We have talked at length about the steps that Imagination takes every day to make our world safer with automotive AI. Today we see advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) that have AI at their core. From simple, dynamic satnav route planning, through lane keep assist, to full autonomous driving stacks, drivers are gradually becoming equipped with more ways than ever to take the stress out of their journeys.
The ISO 26262 Digital Conference is a not-for-profit functional safety event organised by safety practitioners heavily involved with ISO 26262 and is designed to provide opportunities for those in the industry to network, share knowledge and engage in discussions. For obvious reasons, the event this year is taking place entirely online and will run between 24th – 25th March 2021.
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.
