We've already written Nvidia's GeForce3 graphics chip, codename NV20, will be the best thing since sliced bread, because all new 3D accelerators are. Now you can see for yourself courtesy of Japanese site PC Reporter.

Our Tony Smith wrote here that, as expected, GeForce 3 is an impressive step forward. Indeed, it's much further beyond the GeForce 2 than that chip was ahead of the GeForce 256, the first in the family.

Tony said that it was largely down to an entirely new architecture. The GeForce 3's design centres on a programmable geometry engine - Nvidia calls it the Vertex Processor - and a programmable rendering system, dubbed the Pixel Processor. "As we predicted in our GeForce 3 preview, both engines allow 3D software developers to customise the chip to the specific needs of their applications, rather than the other way round." ®
