LONDON – Partners of graphics IP licensor Imagination Technologies Group plc will be demonstrating the first products using the firm's PowerVR Series 6 GPU cores at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the company said. Equipment on show that uses Series 6 GPUs – codenamed Rogue – to render its graphics will include televisions, Imagination added.
Imagination's PowerVR Series 6 GPU architecture was announced in early in 2011 with a design win in the Nova A9600 application processor IC for mobile phones in development at ST-Ericsson and aimed at 28-nm CMOS manufacturing process technology. Series 6 was expected to bring about a 20-fold increase in performance over previous generation GPUs.
Imagination said it will also demonstrate the OpenGL ES3.0 and OpenCL capabilities of Series 6 GPUs, its Meta Series 3 multi-threaded processor (CPU/DSP), its Ensigma Series 4 radio processor (RPU) and PowerVR ray tracing graphics.
