PowerVR G6400 GPU features

All PowerVR Series6 Rogue GPUs focus on delivering the most efficient graphics and compute engine and offers a series of key advantages over competing solutions, including:

  • FP32 ALU cores: The PowerVR Series6 Rogue cores include Unified Scalable Clusters (or USCs); each cluster contains 16 pipelines and each pipeline has 2 FP32 ALUs. The PowerVR G6230 GPU is a dual-cluster design that has a total of 64 FP32 ALU cores, offering superior processing power and improved precision for better image quality in console-quality games. Additionally, the PowerVR G6230 GPU includes a number of FP16 cores which provide additional low-power performance for a range of graphics applications, including fast blending for HDR rendering in games and UIs.
  • Scalar processing: Scalar processing achieves the highest utilization of ALUs and eases graphics programming. Whereas vector arithmetic units occupy more silicon than a scalar unit and might not be fully used if code is not operating on vectors, scalar ALUs handle algorithms written with scalar ops (R), vec2 ops (RG), vec3 (RGB) or a full vec4 (RGBA) with the same efficiency. In addition, scalar instructions decrease the complexity of the instruction set, requiring less chip area for the instruction decoder.
  • Unified architecture: The superior efficiency of Rogue GPUs is derived from its advanced tiling-based deferred architecture (TBDR) combined with a unified shader approach to the programmable elements of the GPU. The combination of these two characteristics provides phenomenal latency tolerance; along with automatic load balancing, this allows the PowerVR G6230 GPU to process geometry, fragment and compute tasks with equal ease.
  • Leading API support: Application developers can take advantage of the significant parallel processing power in PowerVR G6400 GPU for both graphics and GPU compute tasks. Thanks to the powerful Rogue architecture on which PowerVR G6400 is based on, the Intel Atom Z3480 processor is able to support all major mobile and desktop APIs, including OpenGL ES 3.x/2.0, OpenGL 3.x, DirectX 9_3/10, OpenCL 1.2 and Renderscript.
