1990: State of the Art

processor: SGI Workstation with 16MB memory

display: 24-bit raster with real-time Gouraud shading & z-buffer (no tex. map.);

the terminal is the frame buffer peripherals: laser printer, single-frame video recorder OS & libraries: UNIX, X Windows, SGI GL language: C graphics: shaded raster for special effects in movies
