High performance access to file storage

Nvidia is backing its hearts and minds campaign for the games community by doling out marketing bucks for RIVA TNT-friendly developers. In an outrageous assault on stupid people, the graphics accelerator vendor has plumped for High IQ as the brand for its vendor seal of approval. Under the High IQ programme, the graphics accelerator vendor will "identify, market and sell" software titles that best utilise the 3D features of its RIVA TNT processor. High IQ titles will "use standard APIs and will take advantage of NVIDIA's key product features, such as support for AGP Texturing, 32-bit color mode and the ability to achieve screen resolutions up to 1600x1200". Nvidia will flog High IQ titles on its new web store, refreshing the range each quarter. First up on the High IQ roster are : Motocross Madness(Microsoft); Sin (Activision); Shogo(Monolith);Motorhead (Gremlin); Myth2 (Bungie) and Half Life (Sierra). Nvidia is bussing in product reviews from PC Gamer for the High IQ site. ®
