firmware based low-latency DVFS algorithms offer a direct GPIO control path into the system. This is combined with a strong focus on delivering visually impeccable pixels via visually lossless PVRIC compression and completely reworked anisotropic sampling and level of detail algorithms.
The IMG A-Series features Imagination’s HyperLane technology; individual hardware control lanes, each isolated in memory, enabling different tasks to be submitted to the GPU simultaneously for secure GPU multitasking. With Dynamic Performance Control, the GPU can spread its performance across multiple tasks, executing them all, while maximising GPU utilisation. Priority HyperLanes deliver a dynamic split; for example, prioritising graphics and delivering all the required performance for that application while an AI task runs alongside using the remaining performance. HyperLane technology can also isolate protected content for rights management. HyperLane also enables a new feature, AI Synergy. Through AI Synergy the GPU delivers graphics performance, while using its spare resource to enable programmable AI alongside a fixed-function, highly-optimised neural network accelerator.
