    Samsung's Exynos chipsets currently use GPUs based on ARM's reference design, the Mali-T series. But that blueprint could change as early as next year, if talks with NVIDIA or AMD work out for a intellectual property licensing deal. That's the word according to SamMobile at this stage, with NVIDIA rumored to be a likelier choice at this point with its Pascal heterogeneous system architecture. AMD, however, has its Polaris HSA that will be working on the PlayStation 4 Pro (announced the same day as the iPhone 7) when it gets released in November. An Exynos product with HSA could come ...

    The Apple A10 Fusion chip is something new you'll find on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that will help the devices power through console-grade games with haptic feedback and be more power-efficient to be the long-lasting iPhones in the series' history. The 64-bit architecture gets four cores to work with — two workhorses that are 40 percent faster than the A9 and two "high-efficency" cores that run at 20 percent of the power of the main cores. Apple notes that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will run 120 times faster than the original iPhone — though with growing content and workloads. ...

    While it’s increasingly likely the iPhone 7 will be the first of its kind to use an Intel LTE modem, it remains unclear what Apple’s long-term goals might be for this new high-profile partnership. Could the Santa Clara semiconductor giant help manufacture A-series SoCs for subsequent iPhones and iPads? If so, will Intel bring its GPU expertise to the table in addition to CPU-making know-how? Probably not, since Cupertino is reportedly so happy about its longstanding Imagination Technologies alliance, it’s looking to make a bid to purchase the British-based R&D company currently ...

    There's no denying that one of the biggest reasons why we enjoy our smartphones, is because of the gaming experience. Years ago this was really terrible, but thanks to the fact that your current smartphone is more powerful than many of the super computers of a couple of decades ago, we've seen giant leaps in gaming. Many of us wonder how exactly does Apple plan to raise the bar with the gaming experience we'll get from its next iPhone, and a new announcement may shed some light. Apple has always partnered with Imagination Technologies to produce the GPUs that power its iOS line-up. The ...

    When Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was announced we were told that, like Honeycomb before it, more emphasis would be placed on the graphics processor. We even saw a new addition in the Developer section of the Settings that lets users "force GPU rendering". What is the GPU? The GPU is the Graphics Processing Unit. It's very much like the CPU, but instead of crunching numbers and taking care of tasks for the operating system and hardware, the GPU renders graphical information and puts it on the screen for you. The CPU can process graphical instructions just fine, but doing so takes time ...
