Imagination PowerVR SDK Blog



I have been using png textures in our app because our client was unhappy with the quality of pvr. I’ve been having RAM and loading time issues even with 1024 x 1024 (they wanted 2048 for the new retinal display).

PVRTCII seems to offer more quality to me in Shaman but will these work on the new ipad (or older devices) at this point?


Hi perrynow,

Support for PVRTC2 is covered on our faq items page Currently, it’s not exposed on any commercial devices.
