Wildcat: New Parascale Architecture

Since the introduction of affordable, high-performance Intel®/Windows NTTM-based workstations in 1993, WildcatTM has dominated high-end 3D graphics on Windows NT. This includes numerous "Firsts," such as being the first to provide 3D graphics hardware geometry acceleration on Windows NT and the first to break the 1 million triangles per second barrier. At SIGGRAPH in 1997, Wildcat announced 3D graphics products with a record-breaking score of over 100 in the CDRS Viewperf benchmark. This raised the 3D performance bar for Windows NT-based systems and leapfrogged well beyond the 3D graphics performance of SGI's Octane workstations to take users into the realm of "graphics supercomputing on Windows NT."
