BitBoys takes on 3D, again?
I believe in BitBoys. I'm somehow familiar with the group since the beginning, and well aware of the fact we saw nothing but press releases for three years in the row, but ... for Remedy Ent. (former Future Crew, from Finland too, btw) it took almost 5 years to develop their "Max Payne", and they made it ! We too saw some screenshots and few videos ocassionally, but almost everybody kept telling it's impossible to keep the game in production for so long time, it will never be released. Well, the result speaks for itself.
This thread is about BitBoys' latest unofficial presentation at Assembly 2001 DemoParty, held in Finland on August, 4th. (Is this your source, Rob ?). You might find some facts and answers there, if you read all the 5 pages (so far)
To conclude - in case of BitBoys' success, we'll have superb accelerator to compete with forthcoming releases from nVIDIA and ATI. If they fail - too bad, but it's not the end of the world
Best Regards ...
Appears the same information I received is circling the net, maybe there is some truth to this new product.
I to have kept pace with BitBoy's happenings since the original Pyramid 3D project. I like your link, especially in regards to how someone cooked up a theory about Matrox being involved with this new product. Likely not (atleast my Matrox PR contact is talking about it), but wierder things have happened.
Still, this new part pales in comparison to the 25+ MT/s GigaPixel GP-3 accelerator. nVidia hopes to introduce GP technology into products as soon as next year. Should be an interesting upcoming 12-18 months, especially with STMicro nearing the KYRO-III annoucement. Also do not discount Matrox, as supposedly still have plans to re-enter the high-end 3D market, possibly before years end.
