Apple Is Building Its Own GPU

An In-House GPU from Apple might see its way into future iPhones.

Apple is into the race of making its own processors since it designed its Apple A6 chip.

A6 introduced the first custom processor to the Apple series. After it, the first 64-bit CPU was made which was Apple A7.

Apart from working on a CPU design, Apple has also been designing in-house solutions for its sensors and motion coprocessors.

As per the latest rumor from Fudzilla, Apple has been working on a proprietary GPU from some years now.

The purpose of the GPU is to overcome the dependency of the PowerVR graphic units.

The iPhone has been achieving top scores in the GPU benchmarks from a long time.

This is due to the powerful Imagination Technologies GPUs. But, now it seems that the stereotype is going to change.

Apple’s graphic model is not yet ready for display and will take more years.

The final goal of the company is to design as many parts as possible. Samsung has also been in the same line recently.

It is expected to announce its first custom processor ever. The new processor will come with Exynos 8 chips in early 2016.

It is also rumored that the upcoming flagship; Galaxy S7 would be the first device to be powered by it. iPhone 7 is also under way.

But, we cannot expect the Apple’s custom GPU to be incorporated in the new device.

If the new GPU was underway in the new iPhone than we most surely would have heard about it.

Well, we cannot be so sure. What if, Apple has been keeping it secret for a surprise? Let’s wait to see.
