Meeting next generation multimedia requirements.

The PowerVR SGX544 Series5XT Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) IP core is a highly efficient graphics acceleration IP core that meets the multimedia requirements of the next generation of automotive, consumer, communications and computing applications. PowerVR SGX Series5XT architecture is fully scalable for a wide range of area and performance requirements, enabling it to target markets from low cost feature-rich mobile multimedia products to very high performance consoles and computing devices. The family incorporates the second-generation Universal Scalable Shader Engine (USSE2™), with a feature set that exceeds the requirements of OpenGL 2.0 and Microsoft Shader Model 3, enabling 2D, 3D and general purpose (GP-GPU) processing in a single core. PowerVR SGX Series5XT cores extend the SGX family with the introductions of the SGX543, SGX544 and SGX554 cores to cover even the highest-end performance/area options, so that the optimal solution is available for every set of application requirements.
