I dont know if any of you have seen this before (Im sure someone in here has), but I just came across this site and apparently the Rev could have some amazing graphics::: Nintendo has filed patents for a technology called displacement mapping, which is a technique that is used to render detailed surfaces while successfully simultaneously keeping polygon count low. Nintendo has filed two patents regarding the technology. One of them refers to a specialized hardware for vector operations, optimising the graphics hardware so that the displacement mapping is computed efficiently. The other one reduces the strain put on the CPU that is caused by rendering a 3d world in 2d. The technology is not new but Nintendo is patenting its particular usage in Nintendo projects. It is very likely that the technology be used in Nintendo upcoming game console, the Nintendo revolution. It is believed that, with the power of displacement mapping Nintendo can achieve better graphics than the XBox 360 with much less power.
