NEC has launched what it is claiming is the world's fastest 3D graphics accelerator for NT-based workstations. The NEC TE4E Graphics Accelerator scored 30 on the industry-standard Viewperf ProCDRS-01(1) benchmark. It will come as part of NEC's Express5800 workstation range, and will be pre-loaded on to the 5800/55Wb and 5800/56Wb high-end machines. It is being billed by the Japanese vendor as offering a two and a half times better performance than existing NEC graphics accelerators. According to US business wires, Ryuichi Kuki, General Manager for NEC's Workstation and Server division, said: "NEC is well qualified to meet customers growing requirement for high performance 3D. NEC is able to combine deep expertise in graphics engineering with state-of-the-art semiconductor process technology to deliver the world's fastest 3D graphics performance." The TE4E is aimed at users migrating from Unix-based systems to NT, it is based on CMOS VLSI chips developed by NEC. It has a special-purpose geometry engine, the GA400, with 64Mb of local memory; and a new rendering engine, the PEC, which has data transfer speed of 3.6Gb/second to the frame memory and 64Mb of texture memory. ®
