Imagination Technologies has announced Series 6 lineup of their popular GPU brand, PowerVR. G6200 and G6400 GPU IP will be the first products in this series. This new series will be 20x faster than current series and at the same time, will be 5x more efficient. 

Says Hossein Yassaie, CEO, Imagination: “Based on our experience in shipping hundreds of millions of GPU cores, plus extensive market and customer feedback, we have been able to set a new standard in GPU architecture, particularly in the areas of power, bandwidth and efficiency – the key metrics by which GPUs are now judged. We are confident that with the Rogue architecture we have a very clear technology advantage and an exceptional roadmap for the PowerVR Series6 family which our partners can depend on.”

Series6 GPUs are available for licensing now. Do note that Series6 GPUs are compatible with Series5 and Series5XT series of GPUs and also support all the latest graphics APIs and some of these products may get to support DirectX 11.1.
