Graphics core vendor to present at microprocessor forum

Oct 6, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

Imagination Technologies will tout its newest graphics cores for SoCs (system-on-chip processors), and discuss the Khronos Group's two parallel OpenGL ES (embedded subset) standards, in a talk entitled, “The world's first OpenGL ES 2.0 mobile GPU core” at the Microprocessor Forum next week in San… Jose, Calif.

Business Development Director Peter McGuinness promises to discuss the issues and advantages of migrating from OpenGL ES 1.1 to 2.0. He also promises to discuss “how tile-based deferred shading can save power while improving system performance.”

The session will take place on Wednesday, at the Doubletree Hotel.

Imagination Technologies is best known for IP (intellectual property) used in SoC (system-on-chip) designs. Its graphics cores are resold by ARM, and used in ARM-based OMAP and i.MX mobile applications processors from Texas Instruments and Freescale, respectively.

OpenGL ES is maintained by the Khronos Group, an industry consortium of digital media and graphics companies that includes SGI, ATI, Sun, and others.
