"Marvell is a recognized leader in delivering a range of SoC products with leading edge performance and functionality," said Wei-Jin Dai, Vivante CEO. "Marvell's ARMADA application processors showcase the leading edge applications that are possible when best-in-class CPUs are combined with Vivante's high performance GPUs. Vivante has been working with Marvell and their customers along with the application and middleware ecosystem to bring an immersive multimedia user experience to a new class of consumer devices."

"Marvell's CPU architecture delivers PC-class performance," said Hongyi Chen, Vice President of Engineering, Marvell Processor Group and Application Processor R&D. "Pairing Vivante's high performance GPU with our CPU technology enables the Marvell ARMADA series to deliver PC-class performance and quality at HD 1080p for applications like Adobe® Flash® technology, Microsoft Silverlight, Blu-ray functionality and engaging 3D games across a wide variety of platforms including Google Android, Linux, Maemo, Ubuntu, Microsoft Windows Embedded CE, Windows Mobile and China Mobile's OMS."

Vivante's innovative ScalarMorphic(TM) GPU architecture combines the latest in high performance arithmetic computing, graphics and embedded system design to produce breakthrough levels of performance and image quality for high performance integrated graphics processing at HD 1080p resolutions. Vivante's underlying ScalarMorphic(TM) GPU architecture is highly scalable in terms of triangle, texture, pixel and shader performance and requires only a few megahertz of CPU to deliver high resolution graphics.

According to graphics industry analyst Dr. Jon Peddie, "The market for embedded GPUs is expanding rapidly with smart phones, mobile Internet devices and media server / set-top box applications creating similar market dynamics to the PC graphics card market explosion a decade earlier. The emergence of robust industry standards from the Khronos Group in the embedded space has fostered an environment where performance, cost and robust API support will rapidly sort the eventual winners from the losers. Vivante has demonstrated strength in these areas which shows they are a force to be reckoned with in this market."
