Imagination Pushes the Boundary for Existing PowerVR Series5XT (SGX) GPUs with New Extended API Features

Imagination Technologies, a leading multimedia technologies company, announces a set of advanced API extensions for its existing PowerVR Series5XT (SGX) GPUs, giving application processors using the technology, and mobile and embedded devices based on them, access to some of the features that would otherwise be only available on future APIs on next generation GPUs.

Because of the advanced architecture of PowerVR Series5XT, Imagination is in a rare position, amongst today's mobile GPU providers, of being able to offer today some of the new and advanced features expected from future GPUs on Imagination's current Series5XT GPU technology, through API extensions without any hardware changes or additional cost.

Specifically OEMs, semiconductor partners and developers using PowerVR Series5XT powered platforms that have these optional OpenGL ES 2.0 extensions enabled, can have access to some of the key features of next generation APIs, such as OpenGL ES 3.0, on today's technology.

The new extensions can enhance the delivered capabilities of today's technology and application processors based on that technology and enable developers to create apps that can access some of the features of OpenGL ES 3.0, taking them into the next level of possibilities in visual effects or efficiency. These features can also enhance the performance and power efficiency of today's mobile devices by enabling movement of more workload from the CPU to the GPU.
