Smooth Shading - Reduces printing time and improves output quality by rendering gradient fills at the resolution of the target device using a series of designated pattern libraries.
This single-slot PCI card delivers very high frame rates for truly immersive game play and serves up fantastic 3D realism through support of perspective-correct anti-aliased texture mapping, pixel-perfect hidden surface removal, translucency, real time shadows and smooth shading.
These include real shadows cast from any object over any surface, true exponential fogging, solid outdoor objects, long-distance scenes (thanks to PowerVR's 32-bit Z buffer function), smooth shading and translucent effects like dirty glass, fire and water.
