Imagination Technologies, the creators of the PowerVR graphics chip family, revealed the first details of their next GPU, the Series7, that might find its way inside the next iPhone and iPad from Apple in 2015.
The iPhone 6 and the iPad Air 2 both have the PowerVR GX6650 GPU inside. This week, Imagination said the Series7 PowerVR chip will be much more powerful. It stated:
Series7XT and Series7XE GPUs achieve up to a 60% architectural performance increase on the latest industry standard benchmarks compared to equivalent configurations of previous generation PowerVR Series6XT/6XE GPUs, maintaining and extending PowerVR's reputation as the most efficient, highest performance, lowest power GPU. Application developers can take advantage of the significant parallel processing power in Series7 for both graphics and GPU compute tasks.
