ATI delivers first 3D gaming chip for mobile phones
Playing 3D enabled games on mobile phones is now possible thanks to the new Imageon 2300 multimedia and graphics family of co-processors from ATI Technologies. These new co-processors enable game developers to go beyond simplistic game design approaches and give users complete freedom of movement, and visually rich 3D gaming experiences.

The Imageon 2300 includes the following:

  • Advanced 2D and 3D graphics;
  • MPEG 4 decode with real-time video playback at 30-fps and low power consumption;
  • Video Capture Ports with support for high resolution camera sensors (1.3M and 2M pixels);
  • JPEG CODEC to compress and decompress images to be either saved in memory and printed or shared wirelessly by the camera phone user; and,
  • Many other features such as two display engines (primary and sub-display) and embedded frame buffer.

    The company offers support for the OpenGL ES rendering API - a royalty free 3D API consisting of well-defined subset profiles of OpenGL, with custom ATI extensions to further improve rendering performance. The goal is to help content developers easily create advanced 3D games and applications on a wide variety of wireless platforms.
