It includes SISR, the latest chipset for graphics processing 315E which has been optimized to be used for SDR. The 3D engine features an ultra-thin dye shrink, measuring 0.15 microns which supports clocking rates which are quite high. The 3D engine features two pipelines for dual texturing which are and mapping 4texels for each clock cycle. The new hyper texel architecture can give 666 Mega- texels as well as 333 mega-pixels for every second and works to deliver amazing frame rates and FSAA (Full Scene hardware Anti- Aliasing).
