Vivante‘s graphics technology powers low-power devices including the Google Chromecast and phones, tablets, and TV boxes with Freescale i.MX6 processors, among others. And while Vivante’s current graphics tech isn’t exactly bleeding edge, it does provide enough power for HD video playback and hardware-accelerated 3D graphics.

But it looks like the company’s next-gen graphics technology could be much better.

Fudzilla reports that the upcoming Vivante GC6400 GPU will be a 28nm graphics core with an 800 mHz clock speed and 1 GHz shader clock. It’ll support Android, Windows Phone and Windows RT devices and OpenGL ES 3.0 and DirectX 11 technologies.

Most significantly, it seems to outperform most existing high-end mobile graphics chips in some benchmarks, including the NVIDIA Tegra 4, ARM Mali T628, and Qualcomm Adreno 330.

By the time the GC6400 is ready to ship next year, it’s likely that Qualcomm, NVIDIA, and ARM will have more powerful graphics processors available, but it looks like Vivante is starting to catch up to its competitors in terms of performance.

  1. As I know, iMX manufacturer provide a lot of technical data, drivers and so on for free to anybody interested, what’s why iMX wide-used in SBC and development boards.
