Fantasy 2 GPU up to 1.5 TFLOPs (FP32)
As promised, the Chinese company Innosilicon introduced a new generation of Fantasy GPU series.
The second generation of Fantasy, also known as Fantasy 2 is a low-power CPU that can offer up to 1.5 TFLOPS of single-precision compute performance. This is actually lower performance than Fantasy 1, which is offered up to 5 TFLOPs in single-GPU configuration.
But the focus with Fantasy 2 is not performance but low power footprint. It is expected to work in the 4W to 15W range, which is significantly less than 20-50W for the predecessor. Officially this GPU is designed for desktops, laptops, and industrial (embedded) systems.
The spec reveal is only for the GPU with no mention of any potential graphics cards yet. It is mentioned that Fantasy 2 should work with fanless cooling solutions, which is a good feature for embedded solutions.
– up to 10Gbps

This processor supports Low Power DDR5X memory (LPDDR5X) up to 10 Gbps. Models with 2GB, 4GB and 8GB VRAM capacities may be released.
It is worth noting that Fantasy GPU series support DirectX 11 API and all major operating systems, which makes them full-fledged desktop GPUs. Unfortunately, we have not really seen Fantasy 1 GPU in action yet, bar the official showcase with games such as League of Legends.
