The power-efficient imagine stream processor achieves performance densities comparable to those of special-purpose embedded processors. Executing programs mapped to streams and kernels, a single imagine processor is expected to have a peak performance of 20 gflops and sustain 18.3 gops on mpeg-2 encoding.
