SUNNYVALE, USA: Vivante Corp. a leading provider of consumer multimedia and computing IP, announced an important milestone for its Scalarmorphic architecture with Vivante licensees' multicore silicon implementations reaching over 1 GHz in silicon.
Vivante has been licensing multicore versions of its industry-leading GC series architecture during the past fourteen months with the initial customer SoC implementations sampling today. The Sunnyvale-based company's latest multicore GPUs have been proven in multiple tier-one SoC vendors' products which will drive next generation game consoles, tablets, smartphones, automotive displays and home entertainment applications.
Vivante's multicore GPUs are ultra-threaded extensions of the product proven single core GC series architecture first launched in 2007. These product-proven multicore GPUs are capable of delivering well over 200M triangles per second on industry standard GPU benchmark polygon throughput feature tests in currently licensed customer configurations.
Vivante's multicore GC-series are complete GPU solutions for the most demanding graphics applications with conformant hardware and driver support for a wide range of industry standard graphics APIs including Khronos Group conformant OpenGL ES 2.0/1.1, OpenVG 1.1, OpenGL 3.0/2.1, as well as Microsoft certified DirectX 11 feature level 9_3, Direct2D and DirectFB 1.4.
Vivante GPUs are designed to enable robust support for the OpenCL 1.1 embedded profile for next generation general purpose computing applications in the GPU pipeline (GP-GPU).
"The Vivante GC-series architecture is designed from the ground up to deliver breakthrough performance levels in power constrained applications," said Wei-Jin Dai, president and CEO of Vivante.
"Our leading edge customers demand the highest GPU performance on demanding consumer applications as well as leadership in performance and quality on industry standard graphics benchmarks. Our multicore GPUs deliver the ultimate graphics performance, well within the typical power budget of a few hundred milliwatts, with the GPU running complex applications at maximum speed."
