Imagination: "all out" with PowerVR G6230, G6430 graphics chips
Imagination Technologies has just added the PowerVR G6230 and G6430, two new graphical chips to its cutting edge Series6 “Rogue” platform, both “going all out” with an added extra area that allows the chip to push the performance boundaries and retain relatively low power consumption. PowerVR chips are one of the most popular mobile graphics solutions - and yes, that's the exact silicon you'd find on the iPhone.

The two new chips round up the Series6 lineup so now it has two 2-cluster and two 4-cluster IP cores. 

Right now, there are no specifics about just how much better the new chips will be, but we could assume that with the addition of more clusters, we’ll get smoother graphics and Imagination Technologies has promised that “further cores” will get unveiled. Overall, the PowerVr Series6 graphical processors are designed to perform at more than 100gigaFLOPS and up to a teraFLOPS for the high-end segment.

The new PowerVR chips are made for a wide range of devices, but the focus of course is mostly on mobile with smartphones and tablets being the first in the line to get the chips.
