WAVE6

  • AV1 encoding
    Improved encoding quality with
    AV1 encoding support
  • Bandwidth efficiency
    Reduced external memory
    bandwidth with Chips&Media's
    lossless frame buffer compression
    (CFrame™)
  • Simple architecture
    A single-clock domain and the on-the-
    fly processing between entropy
    engine–video codec engine
  • Power efficiency
    Optimized architecture for low
    power consumption through the
    efficient clock gating
