Apple Licenses Next Generation POWERVR Graphics for iOS Devices?

Posted June 15, 2011 at 10:12am by iClarified
Imagination Technologies has announced that its next generation POWERVR Series6 architecture, codenamed 'Rogue', has now being licensed by six lead partners.

The POWERVR Series6 GPU family, which delivers unrivalled GFLOPS per mm2 and per mW for all APIs, delivers not only a clear technology advantage and exceptional roadmap, driven by one of the largest teams of graphics engineers in the world, but also an extensive ecosystem of third party developers which has created hundreds of thousands of apps optimised for POWERVR enabled devices to date.

Imagination doesn't name three out of the six licensees. Considering that Apple owns 9.5% of Imagination and has long used their technology to power graphics for its iOS devices including the iPad 2, it's a good assumption that Apple is one of these unnamed licensees.

Since the A5 chip is already in production with PowerVR SGX543MP2 graphics. It's thought that Apple will integrate the POWERVR Series6 architecture into its next chip, perhaps called the A6.
