Information about Nintendo Dolphin
At the heart of Dolpin is the Gekku CPU. Clocking in at 400Mhz, the Gekku still runs cool because of the heat dissipation properties of IBM's 0.18 micron copper technology. Only IBM has the facilities to manufacture such cutting-edge chips in mass market quantities, which will help keep Dolphin's cost down.
The custom Graphics Processor from ArtX, inc., in Palo Alto CA, was desighed by a team led by Dr. Wei Yen - the chief desigher of the N64 graphics chip. Our sources tell us that the ArtX graphics chip can produce many millions of textured polygons per second, much more than the closest console competetor. In this critical area of graphics, Dolphin will leave the others in it's wake.
Dolphin features a DVD drive produced by Matsushita, better known to consumers by the Panasonic brand name. DVD disks store an enormous amount of dats-many times more than the capacity of a CD-which is critical for storing video, audio, and detailed 3D graphics.
S3 texture compression technology from S3 Incorporated is embedded directly onto the ArtX graphics chip. The six-to-one compression ratio will result in saved game memory, but far more important is the fact that the decompression of textures is handled automatically by the graphics chip. The results will include elimination of blurriness, blociness and monotonous repetition of the same elements on screen. All of this will help push Dolphin closer to the frontier of real-time, super realistic graphics than any other game console.
MoSys' patented 1T-SRAM technology is used in Dolphin to embed large, very high performance memory directly onto the ArtX graphics chip. It eliminated transmission times between memory and chip. Gamers can expect more detailed graphics moving at higher frame rates.
