Toshiba To Launch World's Highest Performance 3D Graphics LSI for Mobile Phones
Toshiba Corporation announced a dedicated 3D graphics LSI that is claimed to add previously unseen levels of realism to games played on mobile phones. The new LSI, "TC35711XBG", can render 100 mega-polygons a second (i.e., 800 megapixels/second), a performance that far surpasses that of current handheld game consoles. Samples of the new graphics LSI will be available from October.
Toshiba's new chip integrates a new developed 3D graphics processor compatible with programmable shaders, and its rendering capabilities are able to bring realistic shading and reflectivity to mobile phones for the first time.
Alongside the new 3D graphics processor, the new LSI also integrates Toshiba's "Media Embedded Processor" (MeP) to handle sound, a host processor, a WVGA LCD controller for wide-screen displays, and brings all the essential components of a game console onto a single chip dedicated to enhancing mobile phone game performance.
