3DS Uses DMP's PICA200 GPU

Discussion in 'ATI' started by parallax-scroll, Jun 21, 2010.

  1. No ATI GPU in 3DS. Too bad.

    "The PICA200 scales with up to four pipelines and processes from up to
    four programmable vertex units. The 3D core, using their proprietary
    graphics technology named MAESTRO-2G, the second generation of the
    Maestro design, implements custom graphics algorithms as hardware for
    enabling a set of shading features that include per-vertex sub-surface
    scattering, bidirectional reflectance distribution function, cook-
    torrance, polygon subdivision, and soft shadowing. Their image post-
    processing module, the PICA-FBM frame buffer management, can polish
    the image with anti-aliasing and a set of other 2D functions and can
    actually be licensed independently as a core for 2D-only devices. In
    either case, the PICA-FBM can be extended with a PICA-VG vector
    graphics module."
