3D graphics for handhelds by nVidia
nVidia announced today the GoForce 3D 4500 which is a Wireless Media Processor for Advanced Handheld Devices, as they say. The 4500 allow 3D content on cell phones, PDAs and any other handheld devices.
NVIDIA’s GoForce 3D 4500 WMP enables a whole new level of interactive content not previously possible on cell phones, PDAs, or other handheld devices. For the first time, mobile content developers can harness a powerful 3D medium to create rich, dynamic, lifelike worlds and characters. Additionally, mobile devices powered by the new 3D WMP will be able to synthesise amazingly realistic environments with objects that behave according to complex physics and intelligent characters with true-to-life personalities.
It also supports MPEG-4 and H.263 video formats, 3.0 megapixel JPEG images, programmable shaders, bilinear and trilinear texture filtering, texture compression, six simultaneous textures and a 40-bit colour pipeline for high-resolution detailed images.
