    Hey
    I'm looking for articles that takes you "from the ground" and informs you on how the graphic card work. Explaining the pipeline and things like that, things in the GPU/VPU.

    But also I'm looking for articles that explain all the new fancy things about the new graphic cards i.e NV40/R420 etc. Also what the big thing about pixel shader 2.0/Smoothvision 2.1/Hyper Z III+/Truform 2.0 is, and how they work.
