BRISTOL, UK — Imagination Technologies has launched its I-class I6400 MIPS 64-bit processor with a focus on multithreading, multicore, and multicluster coherent processing that scales from a single core to hundreds.

Imagination already has licensees in these areas, and the idea of clustering has driven key architectural choices between cores and between clusters. A new fabric to link cores into clusters gives significant advantages in being able to shut down individual cores to save power while maintaining coherency.
