When an object is in front of another it blocks the object behind it, with a traditional render device such as a GeForce, it renders everything in the scene and then just before the scene is displayed the hidden objects are hidden, the Kyro, only renders what is visible, thereby saving a whole lot of memory bandwidth on hidden objects, the hidden objects are taken out of the equation long before a rendering call is given.


This was heralded as a newer and superior tile based rendering chipset, but unfortunately it was released around the same time as the Nvidia GeForce2 MX.

Thanks to the Kyro II chipset, the 3D Prophet avoids this unnecessary work by breaking the scene into 32 by 16 pixel ’tiles’ — which are small enough to be held in the chip’s buffer without loading them into RAM — and running Hidden Surface Removal HSR routines to eliminate ‘invisible’ geometry.

Tile-based rendering and HSR allows a graphics card whose chipset and RAM are both clocked at a relatively low MHz to compete against products with faster specifications on paper. With the 3D Prophet card, things were a bit less hairy. On a more serio Visit eBay’s page on international selling.
