The company also announced two complementary GPUs for AI-enhanced gaming graphics and for vibrant 4x4 full HD video walls.
Incapable of properly recovering after a heavy blow from longtime partner Apple, the UK-based Imagination Technologies Group is seeking bidders.
The company sells GPUs for Apple's iPhones, but it might not have that contract in the next year or so. So, the fight begins to defend the core IP.
Longtime Apple partner and PowerVR GPU maker Imagination Technologies has confirmed future iPhones may pack in-house graphics processing units.
Series8XT chips are expected to implement the architecture with integrated products going to market next year. Maybe that includes the iPhone 9?
The Series8XT chips are said to be coming early next year and it is rumored that Apple's next iPhone will hop right on that graphics gravy train.
Some impressive GFXBench results show a marked improvement for the Adreno 540 GPU driving a quad HD from an Adreno 530 running at full HD.
Apple has probably not given up on its dream of designing mobile GPUs in-house, hiring several Imagination veterans instead of buying the company.
Signs point away from Qualcomm involvement in future Samsung smartphones, but challenges, including a negotiation over new GPUs, could stymie progress.
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 [...]
Apple isn't content just designing A-series CPUs internally, as it reportedly wants to buy Imagination Technologies and develop its own GPUs too.
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 [...]
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 [...]
