Imagination Technologies observes that the growth in performance of mobile GPUs is driving future generations of silicon process and packaging technologies, as well as SoC (system on chip) processing performance across a growing range of markets. The say that the GPUís ability to deliver unprecedented processing horsepower (measured in GFLOPS) whilst also delivering amazing graphics performance per mm2 and per mW, means that GPU capabilities are becoming the dominant force driving heterogeneous processing performance in everything from mobile phones through to TVs, in-car information and entertainment, games consoles and even cloud computing.
Imagination is already working with leading silicon foundries to implement high performance mobile GPU-based systems delivering high levels of memory bandwidth, using their latest PowerVR Series6 GPUs combined with wide I/O memory and advanced 3DIC assembly and process technologies. Imagination is also working with foundries and EDA vendors to ensure that licensees of all of Imaginationís IP (intellectual property) cores can benefit from well-defined tool flows and optimized libraries to achieve the most aggressive speed, area and power consumption targets.Brian Bailey
