The PowerVR G6200 from Imagination Technologies is a mobile graphics solution that is used in ARM SoCs like the MediaTek MT8135. The chip is available since 2014 and designed for mid-range devices.
Architecture and Performance
The GPU is based on the series 6 (Rogue) and integrates two clusters with two TMUs each and a scalar Unified Shader architecture. Depending on the available memory bandwidth and clock rate, the performance is similar to the Qualcomm Adreno 320 and ARM Mali-T624 MP4. High-resolution displays (up to 2560 x 1600 pixels) and demanding mobile games of 2014 will be handled without problems. Among others, the GPU supports OpenGL 3.x/4.x, OpenGL ES 3.0 as well as DirectX 10.
Clock rates and performance of the G6200 may vary between different SoCs. For example, the Mediatek MT6795 has a somewhat higher GPU frequency than the MT8135 (700 vs. 600 MHz).
Especially the lower clocked versions of the G6200 are very energy efficient and therefore suited for medium-sized smartphones and tablets. Usually, the GPU can be found in SoCs manufactured in 28nm.
