Next iPad, iPhone expected to use dual-core graphics

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on January 16th, 2011

We knew that Apple wanted faster mobile graphics for the next iPad and iPhone and we have some more details about its choice. The company is now said to be using the SGX543MP2, specifically the dual-core version. The new video is estimated to have about four times the performance of the current SGX535.

This speed increase would be welcomed along with the rumored 2048×1536 display resolution of the next iPad and could enable the kind of higher quality movie playback that would keep Apple competitive against it’s foes. It would most likely support 1080p video decoding in hardware.

We know that the iPhone can be used as a gaming platform and the graphics can be pretty decent. Well, they are about to get even better. Imagination Technologies has acquired Caustic Graphics. Imagination Technologies makes the iPhone’s GPU and Caustic is well known for 3D graphics, so it’s a great combo.

This deal could open up the possibility for very realistic imagery to reach new real-time apps and markets. We can’t wait to see what comes from this new union. It should be very interesting.

I am betting that there are lots of people who work in offices in and out of the tech world that can relate to Dilbert and his office woes. I have had a few bosses that were as trying as Pointy-haired Boss and coworkers I wanted to kick in the groin.

If you are a big fan of Dilbert, a company called LTL Prints has announced that it is offering wall graphics from the strip. Just about every character from the comic is available from Dilbert and Dogbert to the Pointy-haired one.

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2009

Sony working on PSP2, will have Xbox level graphicsA rumor coming out of Spain suggests that Sony is working on the PSP2. The system would have graphical capabilities more or less like the original Xbox. According to the rumor, the GPU of the system is being handled by the same people who make the iPhone’s, Imagination Technologies. It’ll be able to support OpenGL 2.0 and Direct X 10.

Great graphics are one thing but the PSP’s real problem to date has been the lack of interesting titles. At any rate, we’ll have to see how this rumor pans out. But with better graphics, you’re gonna need more choice games.
