    Thanks! I put PVR5 out of my head because it was announced much earlier but apparently we were still waiting for it in '05! I'm voting this also. :razz:

    It's clearly not an SoC and PowerVR didn't produce own masks after Series 5. So it should be Series 5.

    There's been a few close guesses so I should give it away :smile: It's the mask for a chip called PMX590, which was Series 5-esque, but not unified like SGX Competition would have been NV40 and R360 (and it wouldn't have done that well, especially against NV40). Can't really say much more than that, but I'll try and get permission from the powers that be to talk about it a bit more, since it's a cloaked bit of PowerVR history.
