The EU Is Funding Work Into Low-Power GPU Tech

LPGPU is a new research initiative funded by the European Union to explore low-power GPU technologies.

When first hearing of "LPGPU" from a Phoronix reader I figured it was another project like the failed Project VGA and other incomplete efforts around having an open-source GPU design. But this LPGPU effort is backed by the EU and has the involvement of some notable members for their research into low-power GPU tech and isn't about delivering a new GPU itself. LPGPU appears to be largely focused on software advancements for bettering today's low-power GPU hardware.

The Technical University of Berlin has teamed up with Codeplay, Think Silicon, Samsung, and Spin Digital to work on delivering advances in tools and applications for energy efficient use of mobile GPUs.
