The installer is a lightweight application that provides an easy to use interface for selecting the PowerVR Tools and SDK components that you would like to download. This includes target OSs and graphics APIs. Once a selection is made, the installer will download the required packages to your machine.

Alternative offline installer
Unlike the standard installer, the offline version contains all possible packages for your machine. This means that the download size will be much larger than just downloading the packages you need with the online installer. For this reason we recommend using the online installer where possible.
