As with any large enterprise system installation, the MOR has experienced problems with runaway transactions, excessive Input/Output (I/Os), high paging rates
, and memory pool shortages.
At 1280 x 1024 x 22-bpp resolution, the AAlchemy models QX 4232A, QX 8264 and TX 8464 can store on-board up to 49, 124 and 128 M compressed texels, respectively, as well as sustain peak texture paging rates
of up to 266 Megatexels/sec.
Improvements in silicon and memory technology will enable support for 32-bit per pixel rendering, 24-bit integer or floating point, and Z buffering, as well as a two-fold increase over the current Mercury graphics subsystem in trilinear pixel fill rates, textured polygon throughput, and texture paging rates
