The Past, Present, and Future of PC Graphics and the Silicon Behind It
In my talk, I will survey the Graphics Capabilities of a PC System from a perspective of the state-of-the-art 10 yrs ago, today, and what we might expect 10 years hence. I will interweave views and discussions of the semiconductor technologies that serve as the basis for these systems and some of the challenges they present. Included will also be demonstrations of NVIDIA high-end graphic capabilities.
