Our next-generation graphics processors.
Reaching new levels of performance.
Do More With Multi-Core
IMG B-Series takes all of the advances of IMG A-Series, the fastest GPU IP ever created, and offers new configurations with even higher levels of performance. IMG B-Series also delivers new levels of performance for mid-range and entry-level cores. Whether you need a compute-focused core for ADAS, cloud computing or gaming or a fill rate focused core for driving high-resolution displays, IMG B-Series offers an optimised GPU IP solution ideally suited to your needs.
IMG B-Series makes use of a new multi-core architecture – enabling our customers to link together multiple GPU cores to achieve increasing levels of performance
IMG B-Series Multi-Core Demo
Demonstrating unprecedented levels of performance with the new IMG BXT multi-core (MC).
IMG BXT MC cores deliver industry-leading levels of performance for higher-quality effects and higher-resolution rendering. With up to 6 TFLOPS of compute performance and up to 30% lower power draw than previous generations, BXT enables solutions that scale from mobile to the cloud.
IMG B-Series Tile Region Protection Demo
Showcasing safety-critical rendering on the new IMG BXS GPU using Tile Region Protection (TRP). TRP delivers higher performance for safety-critical rendering and an easier transition from QM to the next generation of safe HMIs.
IMG B-Series GPU Core Families
IMG B-Series contains four GPU categories to fulfil the needs of a wide range of markets.
BXT offers an exceptional step forward from A-Series, delivering the industry’s highest performance per mm² making it a compelling solution for top-tier designs.
Driving beautiful high-resolution displays
BXE offers up to 25% area saving compared to previous generation Imagination cores, now with up to 2.5x the fill rate density compared to the competition. BXE scales from 1 to 16 pixels per clock (PPC), with optimised BXE cores which can easily deliver complex 1080P and 4K UIs for DTV, IoT and smart home devices. The highest specification BXE offers never-before-seen performance for pixel-focused IP enabling customers to target 8K displays with optimal silicon area.
We offer support for the Vulkan® API throughout the range, enabling developers to maximise performance on even the smallest cores.
Incredible graphics experiences
BXM is a range of high-efficiency performance cores, providing an optimal balance of fill rate and compute in a compact silicon area, making it the perfect choice for mid-range affordable mobile. They are also ideal for complex UI solutions such as DTV with twice the render resolution of competing designs.
The future of automotive GPUs
The BXS family is the first range of ISO 26262-capable GPU IP, making them the most advanced automotive GPU IP cores ever created. With BXS we have used our in-depth understanding of the industry to deliver performance gains of up to 60% over consumer B-Series parts. BXS produces a range of configurations optimised for uses such as complex car rendering for premium surround-view and dashboard applications, through to delivering highly programmable compute for ADAS compute use cases. All BXS cores are ideally paired with our neural network accelerators for rapid, low-power inferencing performance.
Maximum flexibility or maximum bandwidth reduction.
The choice is yours.
IMGIC technology is a new technology that builds on our industry-leading PVRIC4 to compress images into and out of the GPU to increase performance. Joining our lossless or 50% visually lossless modes are two more options:
- A 75% bandwidth-capped lossless mode, to prioritise quality
- A 25% mode to prioritise extreme bandwidth saving.
This gives more flexibility for SoC designers to optimise either for performance or to reduce system cost, while maintaining a great user experience.
IMGIC is available across the entire IMG B-Series range, bringing the benefits of our industry-leading image compression to even the smallest cores.
Imagination offers the leading solution for premium, mid-range and entry-level mobile with the best performance per area and the lowest power. Imagination works with a wide range of game developers to make sure games run optimally on our GPUs to deliver the best gaming experience.
At the high-end, our larger IMG B-Series cores deliver an incredible 6 TFLOPS – the kind of performance that makes these GPUs suitable for PCI-E form factor designs. We’re bringing our low-power, high-efficiency architecture to a new range of platforms focused on exceptional performance and flexibility.
Automotive safety cores
Following on from the launch of our XS family we are announcing the first BXS cores, specifically designed to address the needs of the automotive market by bringing safety-critical graphics and compute capabilities to market with multi-core scaling and redundancy for the very first time.
Consumer and industrial cores
Our BXE series delivers a scalable range of fill rate focused cores with great performance and low bandwidth to enable cost-effective GUI solutions from 720p up to 8K. This is possible thanks to multi-core deployment of our GPUs resulting in reduced silicon costs and software continuity.

Whatever balance of fill rate and compute you need for your solution, IMG B-Series can provide it.
IMG B-Series GPU IP Launch Keynote
Join this webinar to learn about the exciting new IMG B-Series GPU product range and the technology behind it. The IMG B-Series contains four product families with each reaching new levels of performance to give more choice and flexibility to SoC designers. Learn how features such as multi-core and ISO 26262 conformance make Imagination GPU IP applicable to new markets such as cloud computing and ADAS/autonomous driving. IMG B-Series builds on the exceptional leap made with A-Series GPU IP recognised around the industry as the leading solution for high-performance GPU coupled with low power characteristics.
My first encounter with the PowerVR GPU was helping the then VideoLogic launch boards for Matrox in Europe. Not long after I joined the company, working on the rebrand to Imagination Technologies and promoting both our own VideoLogic-branded boards and those of our partners using ST’s Kyro processors. There were tens of board partners but only for one brief moment did we have two partners in the desktop space: NEC and ST.
B-Series uses multi-core to deliver an incredible 33 core variations for the widest range of options at all levels of performance points. From the smallest IoT cores up to the mid-range desktop equivalent B-Series an outperform mid-range next-gen consoles. Learn more in this blog post.
The past has a habit of making promises that the future struggles to keep. By 2001, we were supposed to be encountering black monoliths around the orbit of Saturn, but, in reality, we’re only just getting close to returning to the moon after a 50-year absence. Where we were going, we were supposed not to need roads, but in reality, the only flying cars we have are the ones that took a wrong turn off a cliff because the driver was slavishly looking at the sat nav instead of looking out of the window. The 1980s, of course, gave us KITT, the four-wheeled, driverless, talking Knight Rider car and with a rumoured film remake in the works, this is still something that fascinates us. Of course, while we can talk at our cars, they don’t yet talk back – but the driverless thing? Well, that is certainly on the cards.
