    Instead of going with the rumored Nvidia Tegra chip to power the display in the 3DS, Nintendo has chosen a product from Digital Media Professionals. The Japanese hardware company announced last night that its PICA200 chip was selected by Nintendo as the GPU in the Nintendo 3DS.

    DMP boasts that the 200MHz chip can provide 15.3 million polygons a second, 800 million pixels a second, and can perform alpha blending, full-scene antialiasing, and other features

    PICA200 features proprietary DMP 3D graphics extensions “Maestro technology”. By hardware implementation of complex
    shader functionality, these extensions allow the high performance graphics rendering found on existing high-end products
    to be realized on mobile devices with low power consumption requirements, such as portable game machines.

    “We had a very ambitious goal in the realization of naked-eye 3D stereo vision, and video game console style high
    quality graphics rendering, whilst maintaining low power consumption. I am delighted that we were able to contribute
    with ‘Maestro technology’, which we have developed over several years at DMP", said Tatsuo Yamamoto, President
    and CEO, DMP.
