This single-slot PCI card delivers very high frame rates for truly immersive game play and serves up fantastic 3D realism through support of perspective-correct anti-aliased texture mapping, pixel-perfect hidden surface removal
, translucency, real time shadows and smooth shading.
A dedicated independent 24-bit Z buffer performs hidden surface removal
during 3D object rendering.
Examples ther PowerVR Ready titles not in the Extreme or p hidden surface removal
with a unique method screen resolutions by combining the on-chip 3 ASICs, microprocessors and microcontrollers, 3Dited States (a).
RenderGL uses the 3D capabilities of OpenGL graphics accelerators to handle rendering algorithms such as hidden surface removal
, Z-buffering, shadow calculations and polygon coordinate calculation -- tasks which normally would be handled by the main system processor.
NEC and VideoLogic have dramatically reduced memory bandwidth requirements by replacing the Z-buffer memory and associated bandwidth with on-chip hidden surface removal
The key to this cost reduction and effective AGP use is the PowerVR's on-chip hidden surface removal
and deferred texturing, which require a fraction of the memory bandwidth needed by conventional 3D systems.
