Graphics Processors

Graphics processors that power iconic products

PowerVR graphics processors enable a cutting-edge, power-efficient and flexible solution for all forms of multimedia processing, including 3D and 2D graphics as well as high performance GPU compute all in the same unified engine. Our graphics technologies are the de-facto standard for mobile and embedded GPUs.

Powering the most demanding gaming environments

PowerVR graphics technologies are licensed by world leading companies to power products delivering the best in smartphone, tablet, TV and console apps, including the most advanced user interfaces and highest performance gaming.

Enhancing infotainment and driver assist experiences

For more than a decade our GPU cores have been found in the some of the leading automotive application processors from the likes of Renesas, Texas Instruments and Socionext. We have enabled both powerful graphics to drive the increasing screen and resolution needs of the car OEMs coupled with support for leading edge graphics APIs such as Vulkan and OpenGLES 3.x.

PowerVR graphics architectures

By focusing our whole architectural design around efficiency, we are guaranteed to always come out ahead of our competition – be it better performance versus power consumption, or, equally important, better performance versus an always limited bandwidth budget.

Breathtaking immersive experiences

VR, AR and MR are emerging technologies that are redefining how we interact with the world around us. From the entertainment and gaming industry to industrial and medical fields, these technologies are expanding the possibilities for visual immersion.

An extensive ecosystem of tools and support

PowerVR GPU technology is driven by one of the world’s largest engineering teams dedicated to graphics processor development. It is complemented by Imagination’s PowerVR Insider ecosystem, which provides extensive support and tools to an extensive and vibrant community of developers, who have already created hundreds of thousands of apps optimised for PowerVR powered devices.
