Welcome

A little product renaming here, a little RISC-V magic there, some extra performance, and voila – Imaginations 10th-gen PowerVR is born – The Register

With its tenth generation, Imagination has actually switched to a new naming plan for its GPU cores. As for right now, the A-series consists of the top-end AXT 64-2048 that, according to Imagination, can crunch up to 2 TFLOPS of FP32 computations or 64 gigapixels per 2nd and 8 TOPS for AI mathematics. Surprisingly enough, the A-series was announced at 0900 Beijing-time today, and 0100 in its house nation of the UK, just in case you were wondering which side Imagination’s bread is buttered, and whether had actually been put off dealing with China in the middle of the ongoing trade war between America and the Middle Kingdom.

Feeling a little lost in the weeds of the semiconductor industry– what with Arm, Qualcomm, Nvidia, Apple, AMD, and others, taking all the limelight with their graphics, compute, and AI velocity developments– Imagination hopes it can return to form and gain back any lost ground with this new generation. With its tenth generation, Imagination has actually changed to a new calling plan for its GPU cores. Previous generations were called PowerVR 8, 9, and so on, whereas now it’s the PowerVR A-series, B-series, C-series, and D-series. As for right now, the A-series includes the top-end AXT 64-2048 that, according to Imagination, can crunch up to 2 TFLOPS of FP32 calculations or 64 gigapixels per 2nd and 8 TOPS for AI mathematics. Surprisingly enough, the A-series was revealed at 0900 Beijing-time today, and 0100 in its home country of the UK, simply in case you were questioning which side Imagination’s bread is buttered, and whether had been put off dealing with China in the middle of the continuous trade war between America and the Middle Kingdom.
