For those of you who are not familiar with Imagination, we are the leading provider of GPUs in mobile, having shipped in over a billion devices, from smartphones, tablets and wearables to smart TVs, set-top boxes and other embedded platforms. Our PowerVR SGX and Rogue families have been used by semiconductor vendors like Allwinner, Intel, LG, MediaTek, Renesas, Rockchip, Samsung, Sony, Texas Instruments and power some of the most iconic consumer products available today.
A few weeks ago we published a collection of videos to help new and existing PowerVR developers familiarize themselves with our tools and utilities. Today we are happy to announce that we’ve added two more videos to our YouTube playlist which offer an overview of our SDK and tools.
PowerVR Graphics SDK
This video provides an overview of the PowerVR Graphics SDK. The SDK includes a cross-platform OS and API abstraction layer, a library of helper tools for maths and resource loading, and optimized example applications to demonstrate the most efficient ways of implementing common 3D graphics effects on PowerVR GPUs.
This video provides an overview of the PowerVR Tools – a suite of utilities designed to enable rapid graphics application development. The tools target a range of areas including asset deployment, development and performance analysis. PowerVR Tools include: PVRTexTool and PVRGeoPOD for asset deployment; PVRShaman, PVRShaderEditor and PVRVFrame for development; PVRTune, PVRMonitor, PVRTrace and PVRHub for performance analysis.
