Innosilicon and Imagination Partner on High-Performance GPU Development for Data Center Applications

  • Oct 03, 2020  

London, England; October 13th,2020 – Imagination Technologies announces its cooperation with Innosilicon, the leading provider of high-speed mixed signal IP and customs ASIC solutions in the industry. Using the highly innovative Chiplet and GDDR6 technology, Innosilicon have integrated Imagination’s newly launched BXT multi-core GPU IP in high-performance GPU (discrete graphics card) SoCs for desktop and data center applications. The two companies are also exploring a long-term strategic partnership to bring even more powerful GPU SoCs to the market.

With the integration, Innosilicon’s high-performance GPU will be able to offer up to a 70% higher compute density compared to existing desktop GPUs. The BXT core IP allows for more flexible control over the configuration and layout of individual cores in SoCs and multi-die packages. The IPs versatility means it can be built upon to create multiple platforms that can scale from mobile up to cloud-level solutions.

Graham Deacon, Vice President of Business Development, Imagination, says; “Imagination is excited to have a new partner in Innosilicon. Innosilicon has an excellent engineering team with a track record for innovative high-performance products built using advanced processes. With the rise of 5G and high-speed Wi-Fi 6, cloud gaming and data center GPU server is a rapidly growing market, and we are looking forward to seeing the impact of our low-power, high-efficiency technology in this space.”

Roger Mao, Vice President of Engineering, Innosilicon, says; “Imagination’s BXT multi-core GPU IP delivers the level of performance and power efficiency we had been looking for. Innosilicon has a solid track record in delivering first class high-speed and high-bandwidth computing solutions in advanced FinFET process nodes. Building on this success and strong customer demand, we are announcing our upcoming product which is a standalone high-performance 4K/8K PCI-E Gen4 GPU card, set to hit the market very soon, that will power 5G cloud gaming and data center applications. With a solid foundation in GDDR6 high-speed memory, cache coherent chiplet innovation and high-performance multimedia processor optimization, a move into a standalone PCI-E form-factor GPU is natural for us. Thanks to BXT’s multi-core scalable architecture, we are able to build a customized solution to meet the high-end data center demand with fantastic cloud and computing performance.”
