The Graphics Unit of the INTEL I80860
The Intel I80860 is a very powerful RISC processor, designed for applications that require a large amount of floating point and integer calculations. Additionally it supports graphics applications with a Graphics hardware unit. The aim of this article is to investigate, for which application this unit is useful and whether the results obtained by the help of this unit are better as with standard C or assembly implementations of the same algorithm.
