GM9446 GPU

PowerVR Series9XM Graphics Processors

Ultra-efficient, high-performance GPUs

The PowerVR Series9XM family 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.
