Wearable graphics could get a boost with Imagination's Series7 GPUs

Agam Shah | Nov. 11, 2014
Imagination claims its Series7 GPUs will boost object recognition and augmented reality. How long before they appear on your wrist?

Imagination, like ARM, designs processors and licenses it to chip makers. Nvidia also has started licensing its GPU architecture to third-parties, but hasn't found much success. Nvidia is licensing high-end GPUs, while Imagination's GPU designs are available at various power and performance levels, Beets said.

Imagination's GPU designs work with different CPU technologies, including x86, ARM and MIPS.

The company is also pushing the Series7XT for use in game consoles and servers, where it could be possibly used to process and deliver streaming video over the cloud. The GPUs also have virtualization layers to secure data and user credentials.

The Series7 processors could be in devices next year.
