The British GPU maker Imagination Technologies, known for creating the PowerVR line of graphics processing units, has debuted a 192-core GPU at the MWC 2014 in Barcelona, Spain.

The chip is called PowerVR GX6650 and has been specifically created for use in mobile devices with high resolution and TV sets with support for 4K resolution. Imagination Technologies calls the chip the most powerful of all currently on the market as the chip can process up to 12 pixels per single clock cycle.
