PowerVR G6400

Imagination PowerVR G6400

The PowerVR G6400 from Imagination Technologies is a fast mobile graphics solution that is used in tablet and smartphone SoCs like the Intel Merrifield series (e.g., Atom Z3460). Chips including this GPU are available from G2 2014 on and the performance is situated in the low high-end.

Architecture and Performance

The GPU is based on the series 6 (Rogue) and integrates four clusters with two TMUs each and a scalar Unified Shader architecture. The chip does offer more than twice of the performance compared to the SGX543MP3 from the Apple A6, while maintaining the same clocks. Even very demanding mobile games can be played without problems (as of 2013). Among others, the GPU supports OpenGL 3.x/4.x, OpenGL ES 3.0 as well as DirectX 10.

Energy Consumption

The manufacturer designed the PowerVR G6400 as a comparatively "wide" chip to achieve a high performance and a high energy efficiency at the same time. As a result, SoCs with the G6400 can also be used in smartphones. However, it does occupy a comparatively large area on the chip in return.
