Imagination Technologies and Rightware have entered into a new multi-year strategic agreement. The partnership to work on mobile benchmark development and to provide enhanced user interface through Rightware’s Kanzi-based UIs on Imagination’s industry-leading processors, including PowerVR GPUs and MIPS CPUs.
Tony King-Smith, EVP of marketing for Imagination said “The industry needs credible and objective system-wide benchmarks that measure real-world performance taking into account the latest applications used on today’s smartphones and tablets, as well as power and thermal constraints, because that is what consumers ultimately want: a realistic evaluation of the devices they are using. Rightware is a leader in driving benchmark development, and we look forward to working with them through the Benchmark Development Program on furthering this important next generation of industry benchmarks.”
“We are delighted to work with Rightware to optimize its Kanzi UI solution for the ever-growing range of SoC devices using Imagination’s IP cores. As we continue to see increasing demand for advanced graphics-rich, intelligently interactive user experiences in consumer products across a wide range of markets, it’s important for us to help our partners create UIs that can take advantage of the powerful underlying hardware that we provide. We look forward to working with Rightware to evolve their Kanzi UI tools to make best use of everything that our GPUs, CPUs and VPUs have to offer. ”
Jonas Geust, CEO of Rightware says “Imagination is a respected leader in GPUs, CPUs and a range of other semiconductor IP found in many of the world’s most popular products. We welcome Imagination’s multi-year commitment to our Benchmark Development Program, and look forward to continuing to deliver products that objectively measure the performance and efficiency of the latest hardware IP, as well as addressing the issue of power benchmarking demanded by mobile. In addition, optimizing our Kanzi UI Solution for Imagination’s PowerVR GPUs and MIPS CPUs will enable the creation of superior user experiences on a wide range of next-generation mobile and automotive products.”
