It's no surprise that a company recognised as the inventor of 3D graphics and simulation would be at the centre of the explosive growth of high- performance 3D graphics on the Windows NT platform.
Evans & Sutherland delivered its first NT graphics acceleration chipset, REALimage 1000, in 1997. Since then, it has introduced two subsequent generations of technology. It also acquired graphics board maker AccelGraphics in 1998. Today, virtually every major OEM of NT workstations offers Accel- branded graphics subsystems with REALimage technology, including Compaq, Dell, Gateway, Hewlett Packard, Hitachi and Siemens Nixdorf.
Most recently, Evans & Sutherland announced its DYNAMICgeometry software driver architecture. The new drivers accelerate OpenGL geometry processing and data movement by simultaneously using Intel's new Pentium III Streaming SIMD extensions, multiple system processors, and/or hardware geometry engine, according to their availability. Users who currently own a high- end Evans & Sutherland AccelGALAXY graphics subsystem will be able to download the new drivers and use the board in a Pentium III-based system with dramatic performance improvement in geometry-intensive applications. The flexibility of the architecture allows geometry processing to scale automatically with future, higher-performance microprocessors, with the addition of multiple processors, and with programmable geometry processors integrated into graphics cards.
