SEGA將於下一世代AC機板使用PowerVR繪圖技術
PowerVR官方網頁


SEGA正式對外發表,將與英國Imagination Technologies合作,於下一世代的大型電玩機板上繼續採用PowerVR繪圖技術。

SEGA自從DC主機與相容機板NAOMI開始,就與Imagination Technologies合作,使用該公司的PowerVR繪圖技術所生產之PoweVR2 DC繪圖晶片,之後強化版NAOMI2晶片也持續採用Imagination Technologies所提供的3D幾何與圖形處理晶片,原先計劃發展用為PC 3D繪圖晶片產品的PowerVR技術,後來轉而將大部分資源供應給SEGA的家用主機及大型電玩機板使用。

SEGA在NAOMI2後續的下一世代大型電玩機板開發時,亦曾考慮過使用其他公司所提供的3D繪圖技術,但在考量與Imagination Technologies良好的合作關係,以及PowerVR繪圖技術的優異之處後,決定持續與Imagination Technologies的合作關係,並繼續以PowerVR繪圖技術的產品來發展下一代最先進的大型電玩機板。

目前SEGA除了自家研發的NAOMI、NAOMI2機板之外,同時也開發SONY PS2相容機板SYSTEM246、微軟Xbox相容機板CHIHIRO以及任天堂NGC相容機板TRIFORCE等系統的遊戲。

SEGA Licenses PowerVR Series 5?

18-Mar-2004, 09:04.43 Reporter : DaveBaumann

In a press release today Imagination Technologies have announced that SEGA have entered into a licensing agreement for “the development of next generation arcade systems based on new high-end PowerVR graphics technology”. Presently the only high end graphics technology that anyone is aware of from Img Tech’s PowerVR division is “PowerVR Series 5”.

PowerVR and SEGA have a history of graphics developments, and in each case this spanned technology that was used in both SEGA Arcade/Console platforms and in the PC market: First SEGA’s Dreamcast console and N@OMI Arcade Platform used PowerVR IP that was the basis for the PC's Neon 250 graphics card, and then SEGA and PowerVR developed the N@OMI2 platform that utilised multiple Neon 250 PowerVR chips along with ELAN, a geometry co-processor.

Series 5 has been under discussion for a long period of time now and, from the comments made by Img Tech’s own John Metcalfe, appears to be late. When we last spoke to PowerVR they made it clear that they want to remain an IP company and wouldn’t be interested in effectively becoming a fabless semicon and producing the Series 5 chip themselves without a licensee. Now that SEGA is on-board this may give the green light for finalising the chip implementation.

It widely expected, from the technology demonstrations that PowerVR released for the ShaderX2 book, that PowerVR series 5 will be a DirectX9 Shader 3.0 capable part.
