Default PowerVR 6 graphics promise 100X boost to future iPhones

Quote:
Imagination Technologies in a low-profile step has given out the very first details of its next-generation PowerVR mobile graphics. The 6 series, nicknamed Rogue, is expected to be an exponential speed boost; it should be at least 20 and as much as 100 times faster than the SGX500 series graphics it would replace, the chip designer said. Simultaneously, it won't use any more than one milliwatt of power, keeping it suitable for smartphones and tablets.

While the company hasn't outlined what the capabilities will be, ST-Ericsson has already given an estimate for what a production chip could do. Its future Nova A9600 will combine a 2.5GHz ARM Cortex-A15 with the PowerVR 6 to produce virtually desktop-level graphics; it should handle 350 million real-world polygons per second and five gigapixels per second, ST-Ericsson said. The speed up would lead to 1080p video at 120 frames per second, four times what's usually possible today, and "professional" quality 3D recording.

Imagination didn't say when mobile devices would start shipping with the new PowerVR hardware, but ST-Ericsson expected the A9600 to arrive as test samples sometime this year. The timing would imply mass production for other companies in or by 2012 and could lead to major PowerVR implementers, including Apple, getting major performance improvements in as little as a year.

In the interim, the company also hinted that its much nearer term PowerVR SGX543 and SGX544 would come sooner than expected. They should reach the first shipping products "within three months," it said.

So doe that mean, We will have a handheld device that is as power ful as the xbox or ps3, in the next 1-2 year. or even this year.

Still not quite console level yet but getting close! Amazing what they're managing to put into mobiles but I always worry about battery life.

you honestly think it'll be that power efficient outside of possibly just idling?

Considering how much they've ramped up performance in phones since just last year and kept similar to better battery life in that span? Yes.

It' still 5x faster than a tegra2 (if we believe the poly/s spec to be true). Recent generational differences haven't been anything that drastic and have demonstrated a hit on battery life. Still going to remain skeptical until I see it in practice.

Still. 1 mW is nothing for a GPU to consume.
