Imagination Technologies, a developer of graphics processing intellectual property, announced
in a press release that Intel has licensed its next-generation PowerVR graphic and video chip, codenamed 'Eurasia', along with an upcoming multi-format video codec core.
In 2004 Intel licensed the PowerVR MBX technology and used it for its Intel 2700G accelerator
, which offers 30fps MPEG 4 and Windows Media playback at 640x480 and MPEG 2 at the same framerate at 720x480. One device that integrates the chip is the Dell Axim X50v.
The Eurasia-based chips will not supersede but supplement existing PowerVR MBX products.
