GPUs in Next-Gen iOS Devices Could Be 20 Times More Powerful

Imagination Technologies, whose PowerVR GPUs are found in Apple’s iOS devices, on Tuesday announced its next-generation PowerVR Series6 GPU, which is 20 times more powerful than its current chips. AppleInsider reported on the news.

Imagination said it expects the new GPUs to end up in everything from smartphones and tablets to TVs and cars. Apple, which owns a 9.5 percent stake in the company, is a likely customer too, but, as is typical in Apple’s business dealings, no official confirmation has been given by either party.
