AccelGraphics Inc. to buy 3D-PC business group from Kubota Graphics Corp.; new 3D graphics company launched; offering the first high-performance, workstation-class 3D graphics for the PC.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 14, 1994-- AccelGraphics Inc. today announced its incorporation and multi-million dollar funding.

The new venture will purchase the high-performance, 3D PC-based graphics product line and related assets from Kubota Graphics Corp. AccelGraphics Inc. will manufacture and market the ActionGraphics line of 3D graphics accelerators. The company offers the first workstation-class performance product for PCs based on the Intel Pentium processor and other high-bandwidth Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) platforms such as Alpha, MIPS and PowerPC.

``We are extremely excited and bullish about this new company,'' said Jeffrey W. Dunn, president and chief executive officer of AccelGraphics Inc. ``Our experience in delivering 3D graphics workstations to the commercial market, coupled with our vision for 3D graphics on the PC, uniquely positions us to be the leader in the 3D PC graphics market. The ActionGraphics 300 product line has been field tested extensively at over 50 dealer sites and has created tremendous interest to date.''

AccelGraphics Inc. products are designed to take advantage of new high-speed processors, such as Intel's Pentium processor, and maturing PC operating systems, such as Windows and Windows/NT, as well as standard graphics Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), such as OpenGL, 3DR and HOOPS. Unlike other PC-based graphics cards, the ActionGraphics 300 provides all of its high-end features at full screen resolution (1280 x 1024 pixels). Both 24-bit true color rendering with hardware double-buffering and Z-Buffering allow for smooth dynamic manipulation of shaded solids and wire frame models at maximum resolution.
