Thanks to the advances in the automotive field, the need for mobile GPUs continues to grow, so it should not be surprising that Imagination Technologies has introduced a solution that can drive up complex imagery at 60 fps on up to six 4K screens. Dubbed PowerVR Series8XT GT8540, this four-cluster GPU has been designed using Imagination's Furian architecture.

The Furian architecture has been unveiled last year, in early March. This is the first new PowerVR architecture in five years, so it should not be surprising that the PowerVR Series8XT GT8540 delivers a fill rate increase of 80 percent when compared to its predecessor. 

According to the official press release, "the new four-cluster PowerVR Series8XT enables automotive OEMs to deliver secure, high-performance graphics capabilities for a vehicle’s many displays." Leaving the automotive applications aside, Imagination says that the new PowerVR Series8XT GT8540 GPU can also provide an excellent AR/VR experience to smartphones, phablets, and tablets.

The first Furian-based solution, a two-cluster GPU known as the GT8525, is already being used by customers in the automotive and mobile fields. The PowerVR Series8XT GT8540 is now ready for licensing as well, but it might take a while for the first applications that use it to reach the market.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
