PowerVR Series9XEP


Rising expectations

As mobile devices and cars become more sophisticated and capable, end users now demand outstanding graphics capabilities even in cost-sensitive devices. PowerVR Series9XEP enables SoC manufacturers to meet these expectations, with low silicon area, low-cost, but high performance SoCs. PowerVR Series9XEP takes cost and area reduction for entry-level devices to new heights with class-leading fillrate/mm2, bringing unprecedented performance to mass-market devices.


Augmented & Virtual reality

AR and VR are redefining how we interact with the world around us. From the entertainment and gaming industry to industrial and medical fields, AR and VR are expanding the possibilities for visual immersion. With its world-renowned PowerVR GPU IP, Imagination is enabling manufacturers to build the devices make AR and VR a mainstream proposition


Automotive (ADAS)

Vehicles are going through radical changes with a move to all-digital designs featuring multiple high-resolution displays. With the PowerVR graphics cores, designs will be able to support high sustained frame rates across multiple feeds to support dashboard cluster, HUD, infotainment and ADAS systems, whilst using only one GPU, thus saving on cost and power.


Smartphone & tablet

PowerVR Series9XEP delivers improvements in sustained gaming performance within constrained power footprints, including for mobile AR. It enables greater compute availability, such as neural networks for object identification. PowerVR Series9XEP will deliver a premium, high-end graphics experience, while still offering industry-leading battery life.

The ultimate experience for cost-sensitive market segments

PowerVR Series9XEP is the ideal choice for products such as set-top boxes, 4K TVs, low-cost mobile devices, mid-range automotive dashboards and in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. These markets can take full advantage of the increased performance now available in a low-area, enabling device manufacturers to deliver advanced features such as responsive, visually arresting 4K GUIs even in affordable devices and embedded systems.

Delivering on features

PowerVR Series9XEP features Imagination’s groundbreaking PVRIC4™ to provide visually lossless texture compression, guaranteeing a 50% reduction in system bandwidth and memory footprint, delivering valuable cost savings to SoC manufacturers. Full support for the latest API standards such as OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.1 and the Android Neural Networks API, provides developer flexibility and the most efficient use of hardware to maximise performance.

Optimised and enhanced

The PowerVR architecture is based on Imagination’s unique, industry-proven, tile-based deferred rendering, for the most efficient use of framebuffer memory in the industry. In addition, PowerVR Series9XEP features cache optimisations, our visually lossless image compression and other microarchitectural improvements, to deliver up to 10% improvement in fillrate density over our previous generation GPU in this class.

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.
