Nvidia licenses 3D technology to Microsoft

Microsoft has licensed a new 3-D graphics technology from Nvidia for DirectX APIs.

Nvidia’s Volume Texture Compression Format (VTC) will vastly improve the 3-D image quality of Internet sites on PCs, Microsoft officials said.

Scheduled for release later this year, the VTC format organizes 3-D volume texture data to take advantage of the 3-D nature of the data, thus increasing the effective texture bandwidth by an enormous factor, according to officials at Nvidia.
