Yep, fully understood, it's just the end of the line in PC side should probably indicate "switched to embedded/mobile" rather than completely...
3DLabs "leaving graphics market" is not entirely accurate - Ziilabs is still around in embedded space. I guess mobile side with the likes of...
This entire "golden era" thread is missing the best evar graphics card conceived in these times.
10GB of LMNOPRAM dont lie.
How many real OpenMax DL implementations are actually out there ? Theres one from ARM, but for x86, MIPS, PPC ?
Old thread, but i cross googled some stuff and found this:
Tigsource recently ran an indie Procedural Game Contest
Results here and a nice short...

I recall a Matrox EMBM demo with fairies flying around on meadow which refused to run on my GF3 ( IIRC ) because it did vendorstring check at...
im barging in in the middle of long discussion but .. can anyone summarize in simple terms why doing GI using low LOD geometry, like physics...
Just as an aside, MS upcoming CNG ( cryptography next generation ) provides for lots of easy hooks for hardware acceleration of basically any...
So aero is going to keep my GPU busy for all the eyecandy right .. now has anyone checked what the GPU temperature/fan speed are going to be under...
couple of patents as well, maybe
"OpenGL v1.1 ships as part of Win32"
Simple, the thing just needs its own killer application, like GLQuake was for initial 3D acceleration. You are probably looking in the wrong...
I'd like to see Sims on that engine .. :roll:
Sure about that ? How about particles, are those handled through tris too ?
Huh, there were Y-Wings ( Koensayr BTL-A4 Y-Wing Attack Starfighter ) A-wing ( Dodonna/Blissex RZ-1 A-Wing interceptor ) and B-wings (Slayn &...
In the immortal words of Bob: Yes!
Will they play Lemon Jelly, "All the ducks are swimming in the water" too ?
sry the track just started going round and round in my head :/
Except that when you modify the command/data stream, you are not guaranteed to get the same results, due to driver optimizations etc. It would...

It doesnt recognize "porn" though so its useless 99% of the time
Hmm .. say you have static lightmaps ready .. what if you render those lightmaps as projected textures on dynamic geometry , projecting it from...
Have you guys seen this ?
especially the classic
Apparently, some SUN super-high-end accelerators, like XVR-4000. I have no direct knowledge though, just googlig.
GL_SGIS_texture_filter4. According to google, there are some GL server implementations that export this extension.
Hm, check the Seiko demo, it shows correct time. IMO its "proper" 3D
Its gonna be a hell of a small market at the beginning then. Its relevance on the market at the time of release is going to be quite limited, IMO.
Wouldnt it be then actually based on primitives and fragments, i.e. you cant do subdivision on [i]vertices[i] but you can on primitives.
If so, i...
I always found this one teh sexiest

Xbox2, then ?
OT, but: Where, oh where, has GL_SGIS_texture_filter4 gone, oh where oh where hed'd be ?
The series number is also increased about once in two years, otherwise all the available details remain the same ( see Megadrives post )
Plus, at any point in time, there isnt much of the "latest hardware" on the market, so your initial userbase would be very very small.
Thats what i'd like to see in hardware
Unfortunately, its raytracing by its very...
Yea the site was extremely slow awhile ago, seems to be better now.

Anyone voting and for whom ?
So i should basically check each and every line of code i write against patent database ? :/
Well, Dark Templars used to be immensely effective against zealots.
Well, for realism, that would be the goal. IMO the standard for level of detail in current games has gone up enough so that metallic buttons...
Actually, the vast majority of surfaces at their basic detail level, especially non-artificial, can be described as such.
Tons of procedural or semi-procedural content ? ( tuned by artist/level architect, of course ) Like IDV SpeedTree for instance.
Of course, that never seemed to materialize
Because it doesn't really offer efficiency - subpixel polys may be of use for some antialiasing approaches but they're really expensive.
