With multi core graphics becoming a norm these days, imagination revenues set to multiply many times. If somebody ought to make a application processor with 10X GPU cores, they receive 10X royalty, compared to single core?

interestingly there appears to be a new Linux oss initiative to make an open driver for the closed Mali driver parts just getting started here http://limadriver.org/ a bit raw for the moment, but i expect all Mali kit to get a good PR boost from End users buying developer/peer advocated mali devices if this initiative takes off in time.

ARM's Mali is a competitor, as is Nvidia's Tegra. Qualcomm has Adreno graphics it bought from AMD, but hasn't worked on them enough, and has subsequently fallen behind.

I never know that the IP cores of imagination technologies are so famous. I'm also interested who is the other competitors in this area.

Wow, looks like Imagination Tech is in sweet spot. Who is the nearest competitor to Imagination Tech or is this company having monopoly over this market ?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
