Leading edge graphics and GPU compute performance
Keeping power consumption to a minimum has been a key focus for Allwinner's new UltraOcta A80. With CoolFlex™, Allwinner claims its UltraOcta enables maximum performance for applications while keeping overall power consumption low.
The PowerVR G6230 GPU from
The G6230 graphics core incorporates PVR3C, a comprehensive portfolio of compression technologies designed to work together to deliver exceptional SoC performance while achieving significant power savings. PVR3C includes:
• PVRTC and PVRTC2 (texture compression): currently the most widely deployed texture compression formats in the market• PVRIC (lossless image compression): delivers dramatically improved throughput, reduced bandwidth, conserved power and improved system performance• PVRGC (lossless geometry compression): reduces overall bandwidth usage and related system costs as the geometry complexity, especially in today's gaming environments, continues to increase
All PowerVR Series6 Rogue GPUs focus on delivering the most efficient graphics and compute engine and offers a series of key advantages over competing solutions, including:
•64 FP32 ALU cores
The PowerVR Series6 Rogue cores include Unified Scalable Clusters (or USCs); each cluster contains 16 pipelines and each pipeline has 2 FP32 ALUs. The PowerVR G6230 GPU is a dual-cluster design that has a total of 64 FP32 ALU cores, offering superior processing power and improved precision for better image quality in console-quality games. Additionally, the PowerVR G6230 GPU includes a number of FP16 cores which provide additional low-power performance for a range of graphics applications, including fast blending for HDR rendering in games and UIs.•Scalar processing: Scalar processing achieves the highest utilization of ALUs and eases graphics programming. Whereas vector arithmetic units occupy more silicon than a scalar unit and might not be fully used if code is not operating on vectors, scalar ALUs handle algorithms written with scalar ops (R), vec2 ops (RG), vec3 (RGB) or a full vec4 (RGBA) with the same efficiency. In addition, scalar instructions decrease the complexity of the instruction set, requiring less chip area for the instruction decoder.•Unified architecture: The superior efficiency of Rogue GPUs is derived from its advanced tiling-based deferred architecture (TBDR) combined with a unified shader approach to the programmable elements of the GPU. The combination of these two characteristics provides phenomenal latency tolerance; along with automatic load balancing, this allows the PowerVR G6230 GPU to process geometry, fragment and compute tasks with equal ease.•Leading API support: Application developers can take advantage of the significant parallel processing power in PowerVR G6230 GPU for both graphics and GPU compute tasks. Thanks to the powerful Rogue architecture on which PowerVR G6230 is based on, the Allwinner A80 processor is able to support all major mobile and desktop APIs, including OpenGL ES Next/3.0/2.0, OpenGL 3.x, DirectX 9_3/10, OpenCL and Renderscript.
