The PowerVR Series8XT family is based on the new Furian GPU Architecture and pushes mobile and embedded performance to new heights with configurations featuring two to eight clusters offering dramatically scalable performance from 300 GFLOPS to 1.2 TFLOPS, a range of ultra-efficient, highly-featured GPUs based on the new Furian Architecture. Features include: an advanced scalable compute cluster architecture; high-efficiency compression technology including parameter compression and the widely respected PVRTC™ texture compression; an enhanced scheduling architecture; dedicated housekeeping processors; and a next-generation tile-based deferred rendering architecture. These features combine to produce a highly latency tolerant GPU architecture that consumes the lowest memory bandwidth in the industry while delivering the best performance per mm2 and per mW.
