    It's a pity they have no pictures of what it can do. :wink:

    I heard a rumour that Series5 was being used in the Phantom Console. :shock: :D

    Not too far apart from reality. After the obnoxiously long wait, why have only one high end product in just one market? Don't remind me of the presuppositions I'm very well aware of them. :p

    Never associate PowerVR 5 with the Phantom console. The name of the console clearly enough illustrates what it really is. A non-existant scam.

    Kristof, read your PMs.

    Oh, and grats! Looking foward to see how good it'll be.

    CC: Ninjas Ducks? OMG, you've got Japan in your hands thus! And that means you can't fab at IBM, TSMC or UMC, only small, crappy japanese fabs. Bah! You guys are screwed! Why did you have to go with Ninjas anyway? We all prefer SS spy armies :D
    Or anyway I do ;) Just kidding!

    Ducks are notoriously hard to train to do the 'heil hitler'. Particularly rubber ones without arms.

    Versatile--I love it. Let's see if that name proves to be as stubborn as GeForce. ;)

    Russ: funny and topical? Someone get this man a comedy show!

    To me it interests what the ARM processor paired up with the MBX can do as that will be where the T&L bottleneck will be unless we can also see the DX8 Vertex Shader that is.

    Also, to Simon F. which IS listening.... I will tell you two things ( yes I am persistent ): DOT3 blending and Volume Modifier support on the platform you know :twisted:

    I was good enough to keep this Kyro II card even if to avoid it over-heating I had to under-clock it 15-16 MHz lower than what it came clocked at :p

    ;)

    ( Hey I have to attack on the "make 'em feel bad" button, right ? ;) )
