Imaginatino Technologies has just introduced the most powerful GPU of their new PowerVR Series7 GPU family with GT7900 featuring 16 unified shading clusters and 512 ALU cores for game consoles, micro-servers, and notebooks.
PowerVR GT7900 is still an embedded GPU with support for OpenGL ES 3.1 + AEP (Android Extension Pack) compatibility, full hardware support for tessellation and ASTC LDR and HDR texture compression standards. The new GPU delivers up to 800 GFLOPS (FP32) or 1.6 TFLOPS (FP16) graphics and compute performance at 800 MHz (using 16 nm FinFET+ manufacturing process), which compares to about 550 GFLOPS (FP32) for an Nvidia GeForce GT730M at comparable frequency. This is even more powerful than the Maxwell GPU found in Tegra X1 which delivers 1+ TFLOPS (FP16), although the Nvidia processor may have a lower power envelope.
Combined with PowerVR Series5 decode and encode video processors and PowerVR V2500 camera processor, GT7900 can be integrated into SoC that support 4K video output, playback (10-bit @ 60 fps) and recording.
Imagination Technologies did not disclose information regarding availability, but they may provide further details at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2015 and Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015.
