High-end wearables

Wearables are driving exploration into new display technologies, novel form factors and materials and new ways of providing information and feedback using the whole range of human senses. PowerVR Series8XE graphics processors provide proven solutions to complex compute and power consumption challenges presented by wearables while offering the best user experiences.

navigation

In-car navigation/infotainment

PowerVR enables automotive OEMs to take navigation, entertainment and dashboard graphics to the next level in factory-fitted and after-market navigation devices. PowerVR Series8XE graphics and GPU compute are key technology enablers for capturing and processing images from cameras in real-time for advanced driver assistance systems.

augmented-reality

Smartphone and tablets

PowerVR graphics IP cores lead the market in 3D graphics acceleration for gaming, user interfaces, personal navigation and multimedia browsing on smartphones and tablet devices. PowerVR Series8XE graphics processors deliver a premium experience, while still offering industry-leading battery life and cost efficiency.

Designed for 4K

With support for resolutions up to 4K and configurations offering PVRIC3 image compression and 10-bit YUV, the PowerVR Series8XE is an ideal solution for set-top boxes and smart TVs. With cores providing various levels of fillrate and compute capabilities the PowerVR Series8XE can cater for complex, multi-layered GUIs that improve the user experience through increased visual fidelity, from simple UIs for small screen devices such as washing machines and thermostats to rich user interfaces for in-car infotainment.

Optimised for low area and cost efficiency

With support for the most cutting-edge APIs, the PowerVR Series8XE is the most powerful GPU on the market for its area size. As the industry moves to standardise on the Vulkan API, reducing the reliance on large CPUs, the PowerVR Series8XE enables SoC manufacturers to optimise their designs with impressive GPU performance within limited area budgets, while maximising overall cost savings.

Reduced silicon area

Up to a 25% area reduction compared to equivalent fill-rate configurations of PowerVR Series7XE GPUs.

High-performance

Up to 100% increase in performance/mm2 on industry standard benchmarks compared with competing devices.

Virtualization & security

Hardware virtualization and multi-domain security optimized to support multiple independent security contexts and execution domains.

Optional scalability

Features scalability for customized designs: users can select the specific features they need for their design such as PVRIC3 and 10-bit YUV for the STB/UHDTV market.

Smarter GPUs for intelligent products

The PowerVR Series2NX neural network accelerator (NNA) is a standalone AI solution, but it also makes an ideal partner for the Series9 GPUs. Combined, they enable the deployment of low-power AI-ready SoCs within a minimal silicon area. The GPU manages classic vision algorithms, while the neural net processing is performed on the PowerVR NNA – and all within the same silicon footprint as competing standalone GPUs.

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.
