Advanced scalable graphics architectures
The most advanced ray tracing architecture in the world, enabling desktop-level ray tracing for mobile.
The new IMG A-Series is the next generation of graphics architecture delivering the latest evolution of the PowerVR TBDR architecture. Fetauring a number of new features and improvements to previous ones including a redesigned ALU, performance scalability, configurable cache sizes, HyperLane Technology, AI Synergy and GPU tile heatmap.
PowerVR Furian architecture is a new architecture for embedded GPUs, the successor to the industry-leading PowerVR Rogue architecture. The new architecture brings about a large number of completely changed blocks for improved performance, power and density. It encompasses significant improvements made to Rogue.
PowerVR Rogue designs enable our partners to deliver amazing user experiences in devices that range from innovative, ‘natural’ user interfaces to ultra-realistic gaming, as well as enabling new applications never before thought of, from advanced content creation and image processing to sophisticated augmented reality.
PowerVR Ray Tracing
PowerVR ray tracing graphics IP is highly scalable, making it potentially disruptive to many markets from mobile to high-end gaming and the creative arts enabling more immersive games and apps with real-life dynamic lighting models that produce advanced lighting effects, dynamic soft shadows, and life-like reflections and transparencies.

Virtualization and Security
GPU virtualization is now a must-have for a range of next-generation applications, from automotive, to consumer electronics, to the IoT. GPUs that implement hardware virtualization can provide isolation between the various applications/OSs for increased security, as well as maximum utilisation of the underlying GPU hardware. PowerVR GPUs, from Series6XT onwards, support hardware virtualization and in Series8XT its capabilities have been further enhanced.Download white paper
