Hardware-virtualized GPU drives six 4K screens in the car
Embedded IP provider Imagination Technologies (Kings Langley, UK) has announced a high-performance GPU core that supports ultra-high-resolution displays for cluster, Head-Up Display (HUD) and infotainment that automotive manufactures are fitting to car interiors from 2018 onwards.

Thanks to an 80% fillrate density improvement over the previous generation, the Furian Architecture-based four-cluster PowerVR Series8XT GT8540 GPU can simultaneously drive up to six 4K screens with complex UIs at 60fps.  Among others, automotive chip and technology providers Renesas and Mobileye are among Imagination’s licensees.

Leveraging its built-in hardware virtualization capability, the PowerVR Series8XT enables automotive OEMs to deliver secure, high-performance graphics capabilities for a vehicle’s many displays. PowerVR hardware virtualization can provide a complete separation of services and applications, ensuring they remain secure against system intrusion or data corruption. The platform can support up to eight applications or services running in separate containers concurrently, enabling automotive OEMs to deploy and remove services at will without affecting others running at the same time.
