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.
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
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 Series9XMP 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 Series9XMP will deliver a premium, high-end graphics experience, while still offering industry-leading battery life.
The perfect mid-range solution
The increased compute capabilities of the PowerVR Series9XMP over the previous generation provide the foundation to support recent popular games such as Fortnite and PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds as well as advanced AI and neural network GPU processing, making it an ideal solution for mid-range smartphone devices, high-end set-top boxes and 4K TVs and automotive dashboard and in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.
Delivering on features
PowerVR Series9XMP features Imagination’s groundbreaking PVRIC4™ to provide visually lossless texture compression, guaranteeing a 50% reduction in system bandwidth and memory footprint, bringing 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
PowerVR Series9XMP is built on PowerVR’s Rogue architecture, featuring Imagination’s unmatched, industry-proven, tile-based deferred rendering technique, for the most efficient use of framebuffer memory in the industry. Thanks to ALUs that have doubled in width from 16 to 32 pipelines in parallel, within a single ALU cluster, along with enhancements to data paths, atomic operations and the compute data master, the PowerVR Series9XMP delivers a performance density improvement of up to 45% over the previous generation architecture.
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.
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.
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.
