But when the 3D graphics revolution got going with the 3dfx Voodoo Graphics about 3 years ago, the mobile market didn’t follow.
The problem was that 3D chipsets ran hot, hot enough to burn your skin in fact, and draw a lot of power. What the mobile market needs right now is a solution with image quality on par with the desktop and playable performance at x This is a fully-fledged desktop replacement system, which means that both the 1. Based on the same core used in the Rage Pro for the desktop market, the Mobility promised to bring a full 3D rendering feature set, excellent image quality, and, most importantly, performance to match their desktop solution at the time, the Rage Fury Pro.
It has a high-quality look and feel, and is very fast — as you’d expect from a system costing well over two thousand pounds.
