Abstract

REAL World Graphics has formally launched its new range of high preformance real time 3D image generators aimed at the visual simulation and animation markets. Known as Super Reality, these modular and scaleble systems use parallel arrays of Intel i860 RISC microprocessors running at 40MHz to achieve remarkable price/ performance characteristics. Super Reality offers such features as photo‐texturing, antialiasing and Gouraud shading at a cost which puts graphics supercomputing within reach of those who previously could not afford it. All systems and graphics functions are programmed in ‘C’ making Super Reality a totally flexible product that could be easily applied to other applications such as general array processing.
