Hardware used by Google TV devices uses the same graphics technology as the iPhone

When demonstrating its new system for set-top boxes at I / O 2010, Google used hardware created by Logitech with a special Intel processor for entertainment devices, but its graphics chipset is the same used by Apple in its iPhone OS gadgets. This is the PowerVR SGX535, created by Imagination Technologies of which Intel is also a major licensor with Apple.

According to the diagram of the Intel processor in question (illustrated above), the features of a Google TV seem similar to those of an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, at least in terms of processing audio and video. The only difference is that the graphic chipset assembled by Apple on an ARM architecture chip, which in the case of the A4 is also accompanied by RAM modules.

The most interesting of this discovery is that Apple TV also uses an Intel processor for entertainment devices, with the same capabilities. Apart from its enhanced functions to obtain content on the internet, Google TV is not that different from Cupertino's gadgets.
