POWErVR SeRIEs9xE

Graphics processor technologies are the de-facto standard for mobile and embedded GPUs.

The best user experience for cost-sensitive devices

PowerVR Series9XE GPUs are 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. Consumers today want exciting graphical applications and technologies in their devices, but they also often want those devices at the lowest possible cost.

Delivering compelling graphics

With PowerVR Series9XE GPUs, SoC vendors and OEMs can minimize costs and power consumption while ensuring the best possible user experience for gaming and GUI in devices such as smartphones, automotive infotainment, set-top boxes and Televisions.

Designed for low-power and cost efficiency

Other new features in the PowerVR Series9XE family include a new MMU, allowing a greater address range and standard support for 10-bit YUV across the range, without impacting area. Series9XE GPUs deliver the best possible real world user experience for GUI, HMI (human machine interface) and casual gaming on cost-efficient products including DTVs, set-top boxes, streaming sticks/dongles, automotive infotainment and cluster electronics, and entry-level mobile and tablet devices.

High-performance

The best performance/mm2, 9XE GPUs provide improved gaming performance while maintaining the same fillrate density compared to the previous generation.

Low-power consumption

Extremely low power consumption with Imagination’s proven Tile Based Deferred Rendering (TBDR) technology.

Architectural efficiency

Bandwidth savings of up to 25% over the previous generation GPUs through architectural enhancements including parameter compression with PowerVR lossless image compression and tile grouping.

Memory efficient

36-bit addressing for improved system integration, improved burst sizes for efficient memory accesses, and enhanced compression capabilities.

Virtualization & security

Support for hardware virtualization and multi-domain security, enabling customers to build systems in which applications and operating systems can run independently and reliably on the same platform.

API support

Support for Khronos graphics APIs including OpenGL ES 3.2, and Vulkan 1.1 and advanced compute and vision APIs such as RenderScript and OpenCL® 2.0.

High-performance architecture

The PowerVR Series9XE family of GPUs also benefit from improvements in the memory subsystem, reducing bandwidth by as much as 25% over previous generations to ensure the increased processing power can be fully exploited. Tile Based Deferred Rendering (TBDR) continues to be the most advanced and efficient approach to rendering. TBDR ensures the lowest possible bandwidth usage and the lowest amount of processing cycles per frame, and all of this leads to high-performance efficiency and the lowest power consumption per frame, outperforming other solutions.

GPU core configurations

The PowerVR Series9XE represent the continuing evolution of the Rogue architecture to provide the smallest silicon footprint and power profile. The highly scalable architecture enables easy, efficient generation of new IP cores to meet specific customer and market demands, with increases in area met by corresponding increases in fillrate and/or compute performance.
