RAYS YOUR GAME

PowerVR Photon is the world’s first mobile-optimised ray tracing architecture. Our in-depth white paper will take you through the challenges in delivering ray tracing in an area and power-efficient manner and explain how Photon has been designed to meet those challenges.

What is the Photon architecture?

After many years of promise, ray tracing, the “holy grail” of 3D graphics, that offers the ability to create 3D graphics of unprecedented realism, has started to make inroads as a usable technology for gaming consoles and desktop PC. However, bringing it over to power, cost and area-constrained platforms requires a very different approach; one that focuses on efficiency.

Imagination has an extensive track record of delivering innovative low-power, low-area semiconductor IP solutions and with the Photon architecture, it has once again demonstrated its class-leading graphics technology. Read our white paper to go in-depth into why the Photon architecture makes it the ideal solution to bring ray tracing to mobile.
