SUNNYVALE, USA: Vivante Corp., a global leader in graphics and compute technologies for mobile, consumer and embedded applications, and Ingenic Semiconductor, a leading China-based SoC provider for consumer devices, have announced a license agreement update that includes higher performance Vivante GPU cores to power the next wave of Ingenic applications processors.

Ingenic was the first company to successfully ship non-ARM based tablets and smartphones worldwide. They also shipped the market's first Android 4.0 (ICS) tablet, which was endorsed by Andy Rubin of Google. All those products were powered by Vivante GPUs.

Vivante graphics cores deliver an exciting and "butter smooth" user experience with state-of-the-art GPU architectures built for consumer entertainment. The GPU hardware and software stack supports the latest graphics APIs including OpenGL ES 2.0, ES "Next Gen", desktop OpenGL, Microsoft DirectX 11 and Google RenderScript. Designed for mobile power efficiency and unified shader performance, Vivante GPUs enable products to run faster, smaller and cooler.

Qiang Liu, chairman and CEO, Ingenic Semiconductor, said: "Our ongoing partnership with Vivante for their GC Core graphics technologies helps us bring the latest innovations and features to our XBurst product line. The technical and business leadership of our companies enabled us to successfully reach mass market production in tablets and smartphones.
