Since the term cloud isn’t getting much attention anymore it is time to move to the Internet of Things and Vivante is right there for it. In fact they have a solution called IoTGC 400, a full GPU in less than 1mm^2 of silicon.
The idea for the Internet of Things (IoT) is simple, put sensors and a bit of compute power everywhere and tie it in to the Internet. In theory this will allow for all sorts of wonderful things and incalculable efficiencies. In practice it is a good way to fill a fab with promise and test curious vendor battery life claims. Like cloud before it, IoT has some very solid use cases and a lot more that seem intertwined with what a vendor is trying to sell you.
