|Fast 3D gfx chip by nVidia|
Heise writes, among other:
California gfx chip manufacturer nVidia presented the 3D chip for PC graphic gards previously dubbed "NV10" in Berlin. The GeForce 256 is the first graphic chip for consumer PCs that processes and displays 3D data mainly on its own.
With 23 million transistors, the GeForce 256 is more than twice as complex as a Pentium-III CPU (9 million transistors). Since it does geometry transformations and lighting calculations much faster than the PC CPU, it can create 3D objects and 3D virtual realities with much more detail and fluid moves. Thus, PC games can make use of curved and organic structures like in movies a la "Toy Story" and "A Bug's Life". (Full article - German - at the title link).
Here is another interesting link on the subject. (ps) (Translation: unk)
