INTERCAD has announced the availability of 3Dlab's Wildcat VP family of workstation-class graphics accelerators.
Wildcat VP uses 3Dlabs' visual processing architecture to integrate more than 200 32-bit processors into a single visual processing unit (VPU) for 200 Gflops or more and more than 1.2 TeraOps of programmable power.
Wildcat VP provides industrial-strength 2D and 3D performance, quality and functionality, for OpenGL and Direct3D applications.
Additionally, Wildcat VP's genuine programmability throughout the entire graphics pipeline provides a superset of traditional graphics processor functionality and is a step towards interactive RenderMan-class rendering.
Wildcat VP supports the emerging high-level shading languages, such as OpenGL 2.0, that extend the boundaries of interactive visual realism.
Offered in three price/performance models, Wildcat VP graphics accelerators will be made available through leading distributors and systems integrators.
