3D-Tech News Around The Web / ImgTec introducing PowerVR Furian
« Last post by Stefan on May 25, 2017, 08:29:16 AM »
Furian is, therefore, is a brand-new microarchitecture that tackles the business of being a really great general purpose compute core, surrounded by best-in-class GPU-specific resources that continue to embody PowerVR’s specific TBDR design philosophy, combining to create a big leap forward from Rogue. For us, it doesn’t matter if the USC or TPU changes completely, or the way that the GPU is put together at the block level evolves in a new direction that scales differently to before; if our TBDR execution is at the heart of the design, it’s definitively a PowerVR GPU.
