GeForce 256™ Features
   Guillemot's 3D Prophet SE makes good use of nVidia's reference design and the nVidia GeForce 256 offers truly extraordinary performance capabilities and features.  Although the card uses SDR (single data rate) -7ns memory, it still offers great visuals and one the whole, very snappy frame rates in most popular 3D games and applications.  nVidia's GeForce 256 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) could well be more complex than today's CPUs and renders amazing visual power for your PC. While earlier graphics chips could handle triangle setup and rendering, the GeForce 256 GPU (graphics processing unit), with Transform, Lighting, Setup and Rendering on a single chip, delivers up to 15M polygons/second and 480M pixels/second of performance. Its unique 256-bit rendering engine enables an order of magnitude increase in visual complexity.

The Guillemot 3D Prophet also offers complete support for MS DirectX® 7 and OpenGL® features to insure that applications can leverage the new features without additional cost or support. And, guarantees compatibility and best out-of-box end user experience.
