PowerVR SGX540

The PowerVR SGX540 GPU was introduced in 2007 and has been used extensively over the years by a number of mobile phone brands. The PowerVR SGX540 normally came with ARM based systems on chip or SOC’s. The GPU was a bit higher in ability than the PowerVR SGX535 which only had 2 pixel and 2 shaders.

This GPU came with 4 pixel and 2 vertex shaders still running at the stock clock speed of ~200MHz. The chip also supported OpenGL ES 2.0. You can compare this GPU with others in the same GPU range from PowerVR. These are listed below.
