Imagination announced the PowerVR Series 6, a future mobile graphics processor that promises to achieve whole new levels of performance. In an interview with Pocket Gamer, the company revealed these new mobile GPUs will be about 20-100 times more powerful than today's quad-core models, yet consuming barely a milliwatt to run. Expected availability date is 2014.
The company revealed to Pocket Gamer today that it has developed a new series of GPUs for use in mobile devices that, thanks to a set of undisclosed innovations in the field, offers up a speed increase over today's quad-core models by around “20-100 times the power”, yet consumes barely a milliwatt to run.
The Series 6 PowerVR chips (codenamed 'Rogue') are expected to equal today's desktop PC processors – and by extension exceed today's HD consoles – within three years. Already a number of manufacturers (possibly including long-term partner Texas Instruments) have licensed the device for usage.
