The smallest GPU to support HDR user interfaces

Efficiency enhanced

At Imagination, we continue to invest in efficient GPUs that bring enhanced user experiences to a large and varied range of consumer devices. IMG CXM is Imagination’s latest highly efficient GPU, with multiple configurations to enable the right fit for a range of use cases.

GPUs are becoming increasingly important for consumer devices, where users expect the same quality graphics as in their smartphones. CXM is feature-rich and is the smallest GPU in the market that supports HDR UI, thus enabling OEMs to provide users with the enriching visual experience they have come to expect but at a lower cost and with more design flexibility. It offers a nearly 50% performance density improvement over IMG BXM, our previous generation of consumer GPUs.

Cinematic user interfaces

Content providers are becoming more ambitious and now want to align the look and feel of their application’s user interface with their cinematic content by integrating advanced features such as 4K and HDR. IMG CXM is enabling this step change with its native support for HDR while being the smallest GPU to do so, thus enabling device manufacturers to keep costs low while delivering seamless visuals.

Smoother images

IMG CXM GPUs now support 10-bit RGBA and YUV, which deliver an HDR graphical user interface, supplying images with less visible banding. More bits per pixel equates to higher quality and a more attractive UI. This enhanced feature aligns SoC and device vendors with the platform and content providers to deliver a better end-user experience.

Advanced bandwidth management

TFBCv2 is the new state-of-the-art compression technology based on Imagination’s Tiny Frame Buffer Compression. It delivers higher-quality lossy and lossless compression and brings an additional compression level (37.5%), allowing for flexibility in design. This enables the device vendors to deliver an improved user experience at a lower cost.

Gesture recognition at the edge

CXM’s small footprint opens space on the chip for SoC providers to combine its GPU compute capabilities with additional AI hardware to bring advanced functions, such as gesture recognition, to consumers.

Content providers are finding new ways to differentiate, such as by developing GUIs in 4K with HDR. DTV/STB GPUs must now support these features while acknowledging the cost sensitivity of the market. IMG CXM can help enable this reality because it is the smallest GPU on the market to support HDR.

When an entire device fits on a wrist, size is the overwhelming design consideration. Wearable GPUs are the most power- and area-efficient on the market while still delivering a user interface that responds smoothly. IMG CXM has enhanced bandwidth management, enabling an improved user experience in the smallest possible space.
