About this event

Abstract: This lecture provides an overview of the PowerVR Series 5 (SGX & SGX-MP) graphics hardware architecture and how it compares to other possible solutions. It highlights why some rendering approaches make such a significant difference to graphics rendering performance and provides information outlining the purpose of each model in the hardware.

The PowerVR Series 5 architecture is covered by a broad portfolio of patents and is the result of more than 15 years of research and development by Imagination. More than 500m devices incorporating PowerVR graphics have been shipped (as of July 2011) and hundreds of thousands of applications are running on PowerVR graphics-powered platforms across every major operating system and CPU architecture.
