    How come there is no graphic card made with this GPU?
    6 Tflops are not that bad
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    I remember having a power vr graphics card back when they competed with 3dfx and their voodoo cards.
    It was as add in card, extra to your graphics card.
    Thought they'd gone, but I guess not.

    Re: Imagination Tech launches IMG PowerVR B-Series GPUs

    KYRO/2...IIRC I think I used to sell two of those models. Fast in stuff like serious sam, didn't have hardware TL on the first or something I think, but they were both great cards and ROCK solid for days while I'd burn in a customers machine running serious sam! Those were the days. Wait those were STmicro, can't remember who bought their gpu ip. Maybe my mem is failing, but I think that was power VR stuff so imagination old IP I think...

    The whole architecture is designed to be low power and embedded.

    Was just thinking the same. I think we played Wipeout using one.

    and then it went on to power the graphics on the Dreamcast, which I think is why they dropped the ball on PC cards.

    Of course if Nintendo weren't such a bunch of cheapskates when it comes to their console hardware, this could power an awesome Switch Pro/2.

    ..but they won't of course, they'll still cheap it out with some outdated SOC that they can pick up for peanuts because its near EOL, and then sell for an exorbitant profit margin to the fan boy army of sheep that buys their stuff regardless.

    If they were going to get a new SoC made, then I'm sure Nvidia could knock up a new leading edge Tegra for them and keep some software compatibility.

    What we really need is to hear Sega are getting back into hardware for this...
