RayCore of GPU Technology is the world’s first real-time ray-tracing-enabled GPU IP that is applicable to a variety of devices including smartphones, tablets, handheld gaming devices and smart TVs. This state-of-the-art GPU IP provides cinema-quality 3D graphics in mobile devices by fully supporting a variety of ray tracing functions such as reflection, refraction, transmission, shadow, and global lighting.
RayCore is designed with patented MIMD architecture which enables more efficient execution of parallel tasks, making it possible to implement dynamic 3D user interface / user experience, interactive 3D games, augmented reality and other 3D applications which are hard to implement using rasterization of GPU.
Among many advantages of RayCore, its high degree of scalability and simple integration configuration enable it to enhance graphics performance linearly with increasing number of RayCore. Its relative cost efficiency, namely smaller number of transistors required to produce similar graphics processing capability, is another compelling factor which surpasses competing rasterization of GPU. This ensures much smaller silicon area with significantly reduced power consumption.
