Imagination Technologies, a 30-year-old GPU manufacturer, will return to the graphics card market
Like ARM, IMGTech is a chip company headquartered in the United Kingdom. It specializes in CPU and GPU. It has been established for 30 years. It has also made 3D graphics cards a long time ago. After the failure, it focused on the mobile GPU market.appleThe A-series processors have been licensed by IMGTech’s PowerVR GPU until they started to develop GPU cores.
However, Apple’s self-developed GPU plan did not go well. It originally planned to completely eliminate IMGTech. In the past two years, Apple had to re-cooperate with IMGTech.
At present, IMGTech has a share of up to 35% in the mobile GPU market, and will expand into new market areas in the future.One of the important directions is to return to the desktop graphics card market, which will increase the total number of employees by 30% by the end of this year, and a new office in Manchester, UK, and recruiting staff in Poland, Romania, India and the UK headquarters.
IMGTech’s move to return to desktop graphics cards has actually achieved initial results. The Fenghua No. 1 and Fenghua No. 2 desktop graphics cards released by Innosilicon in China are IMGTech’s GPU IP. teraflops), not only supports OpenGL 4.3, but alsosupportWindows10 DX11, Linux, etc., the power consumption is only 4-15W.
“Fenghua No. 3” has basically completed the research and development, and will provide domestic users with cool performance such as super computing power and light tracking.
