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 OpenGL ES 3.x. 

PowerVR graphics processors and architectures


PowerVR Series9XEP

PowerVR Series9XEP enables SoC manufacturers to meet these expectations, with low silicon area, low-cost, but high performance SoCs. PowerVR Series9XEP drives cost and area reduction for entry-level devices to new heights with class-leading fillrate/mm2, bringing unprecedented performance to mass-market devices.


PowerVR Series9XMP

Aimed at the mid-range, PowerVR Series9XMP enables SoC manufacturers to meet rising expectations for low-cost, high-performance designs. Architectural enhancements enable PowerVR Series9XMP to deliver the fillrate and FLOPS performance required for intense gaming and compute tasks.


PowerVR Series9XTP

PowerVR Series9XTP is designed to deliver high-performance, complex graphics within strict power budgets. Based on an optimised version of the Furian architecture, it enables SoC designers to deliver solutions that offer the highest graphics performance per watt, bringing next-generation, cutting-edge visual experiences into the hands of consumers. 


PowerVR Series9XE

A new generation of PowerVR GPUs based on the PowerVR Rogue architecture, that raise the bar on graphics and compute in cost-sensitive devices, letting SoC vendors achieve a significant boost in performance with no impact on silicon area versus previous generation GPUs.


PowerVR Series9XM

A new generation of PowerVR GPUs based on the PowerVR Rogue architecture, that raise the bar on graphics and compute in cost-sensitive devices, letting SoC vendors achieve a significant boost in performance with no impact on silicon area versus previous generation GPUs.


PowerVR Series8XT

The Series8XT family of GPU cores is the first based on the Furian architecture. Targeting high-performance SoCs, they are designed to deliver high-resolution, immersive graphics content and data computation within strict power budgets for premium mobile devices and automotive.


PowerVR Series8XE

The PowerVR Series8XE family of GPUs drives cost reduction in entry-level and mass market devices by offering 1,2,4 & 8 pixels/clock versions optimized to deliver the best user experience in a limited silicon area budget.


PowerVR Series8XE Plus

The PowerVR Series8XE Plus family of GPUs enables a step up from entry level parts, whilst maintaining a tight focus on cost reduction. These cores are optimized to deliver the best user experience by combining the fill rate requirements for a great 1080P experience.


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.


Design Optimisation Kits

To help our customers achieve the best possible implementation in the shortest possible time, we offer Design Optimisation Kits. They are a complete solution comprised of IP, libraries from partners, optimised reference floorplans and flows developed by us.


PowerVR SDK and Tools

Including a cross-platform OS and API abstraction layer, as well as a library of helper tools for maths and resource loading. It also features optimised example applications to demonstrate the most efficient ways of implementing common 3D graphics effects on PowerVR GPUs.


PowerVR Tools

Our suite of utilities is designed to enable rapid graphics application development. It targets a range of areas, including asset exporting and optimisation, PC emulation, prototyping environments, online and off-line performance, analysis tools and more.
