TI announces OMAP 3 will support OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenVG using PowerVR SGX graphics core

The new TI OMAP3430 processor embeds Imagination Technologies’ PowerVR SGX graphics core, making it the first applications processor to support OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenVG, providing superior graphics performance and advanced user interface capabilities. OpenGL ES 2.0 brings “life-like” 3D graphics to the handset and creating a mobile gaming experience comparable to today’s handheld gaming devices. OpenVG provides hardware acceleration of 2D scalable vector graphics for creation of advanced, immersive user interfaces and flash-style animations. TI also is enabling sophisticated and dynamic images in the mobile gaming environment with “smart pixel” technology offered via OpenGL ES 2.0 that allows each pixel in an image to be programmed individually, giving game developers the power to create rich effects with cinematic realism.
