    PowerVR has revealed the Serie Rogue, Serie 6, for one year ( http://www.anandtech.com/show/5364/powervr-series-6-rogue-gpus-released-to-licensing ) and some companies are already working on it like Mediatek ( they've just announced a new Big Little SOC using a Serie 6 GPU http://www.engadget.com/2013/07/29/mediatek-mt8135-biglittle-mp-powervr-series6-g6200/ ).

    Meanwhile, Apple has been recycling the Serie 4 for years and doesn't seem prone to integer the new GPU serie in the iPhone 5S ( rumors talk about a PowerVR SGX544MP4 http://www.extremetech.com/computin...na-display-12mp-camera-quad-core-gpu-same-cpu) wherease PowerVR is a privileged partner.

    Gaming on iDevices became a major source of income, while Apple takes its time to increase the performance of OPENGL on Mac... (

    Why does Apple refuse to propose the last GPU generation for the High End iDevices ?

    The Rogue architecture isn't a good match for the current Apple A6 SoC design.

    Apple should adopt Rogue with the 20nm A7 chips that debut in devices around the middle of next year.

    Keep in mind that announce and ship are not the same thing. Devices are not expected to ship with that MediaTek chip until next year. Apple does not pre-announce its products, so we could see an iPhone 6 with Rogue technology at around the time that the first devices ship with the MediaTek chip.
