The 32-bit PIC32MZ DA is the first MCU with an integrated 2D GPU + up to 32MB of DDR2 memory:

The PIC32MZ DA family bridges the graphics performance gap between MCUs and microprocessor units (MPUs) for customers who may wish to stay in the familiar design environment of an MCU. The devices provide MPU-like graphics capabilities with the seamless integration and programming model of Microchip’s PIC32 and MPLAB IDE and Harmony software framework. These tools provide a visual graphics design environment, custom display driver creation, graphics libraries and an asset converter that can take a custom graphic and optimize it for their chosen display size. Features of the new devices include: Three-layer graphics controller capable of driving 24-bit color Super eXtended Graphics Array (SXGA) displays High-performance 2D Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) 32 MB integrated SDRAM or 128 MB externally addressable SDRAM option providing expansive storage Ample on-chip Flash, SRAM...
