Why choose Imagination?


Imagination’s GPU IP allows graphics designers to optimise their graphics card for a particular use case and differentiate from the competition.

Performance that scales

Imagination’s innovative approach to multi-core enables graphics designers to seamlessly scale the IP to match the performance target.

Energy Efficiency

Based on Imagination’s tile-based deferred rendering architecture, originally designed for markets where battery is limited, our GPUs offer exceptional energy efficiency.

Ahead of the game

Cloud gaming service providers can maximise the number of gamers hosted per GPU by combining Imagination’s flexible multi-core technology with HyperLane virtualisation.

Discover IMG DXD

IMG DXD is the first in a new range of high-performance GPU IP with DirectX support. IMG DXD is developed for cloud gaming and desktop graphics experiences, starting with DirectX Feature Level 11_0, and includes API support to run popular PC games and Windows-based apps.

DXD is especially appealing to cloud gaming firms due to its multi-core setup, decentralised scaling method, and HyperLane virtualization technology, which provides security and performance control for numerous gamers. It is also energy-efficient, making it suited for markets with minimal power use.
