PowerVR SGX531

► remove from comparison

The PowerVR SGX531 is an integrated graphics card that can be found in mostly ARM based SoCs for tablets and smartphones. It offers 2 pixel and 1 vertex shaders that are usually clocked at 200 MHz. The GPU supports OpenGL ES 2.0 and was announced in Oct. of 2006.

PowerVR SGX540

► remove from comparison PowerVR SGX540

The PowerVR SGX540 is an integrated graphics card that can be found in mostly ARM based SoCs for tablets and smartphones. It offers 4 pixel and 2 vertex shaders that are usually clocked at 200 MHz. The GPU supports OpenGL ES 2.0 and was announced in November of 2007.

PowerVR SGX554MP4

► remove from comparison PowerVR SGX554MP4

The PowerVR SGX554MP4 (series 5XT) is an integrated graphics card usually used in ARM based SoCs. It is e.g. used in the Apple A6X (iPad 4) SoC. It offers 4 graphics cores with 8 SIMDs each and is able to reach 76.8 GLOPs at 300 MHz. The GPU itself supports OpenGL ES 2.0, DirectX9 and OpenCL 1.1. In the Apple A6X the GPU cores are positioned near the two 64 Bit memory controllers leading to a very good memory bandwidth at the time.
