Does the Wii U support tessellation?

#11SkyCrackersPosted 1/20/2013 5:13:19 PM
I would guess that the Wii U's GPU has a tessellation unit because every GPU in the Radeon HD 4000 series had one. Unless Nintendo stripped it out to cut costs, which is within the realm of possibility.

What exactly does the process of creating a two-dimensional plane using the repetition of a geometric shape with no overlaps and no gaps have to do with Samus in her Zero Suit?

See this is why we don't bother humoring nintendo fanboys.

The level of ignorance is astounding.


I'd ask you if you are 12 years old, but even 12 year olds these days have a grasp of basic technology such as tessellation.


It's no wonder your kind call every little thing you don't like the sound of a troll, you really have no idea and don't know any better.



Reminds me painfully of how ignorant Wakka was in FFX with his constant blind Yevon dickriding

The vertices of those geometric shapes can be transformed to create rounded contours.

Not everyone lives in their basement and lives and breath computer information. Just like someone may not understand car jargon or know how to change their oil, not everyone can be aware of the ins and outs of computer processes.

Is tesselation DX11 exclusive? also lol silly baha xx


Um, no. Tessellation is just a method for subdividing a mesh. It's been around for ages. What you are thinking of is tessellation done at the hardware level in real-time, and that's supported by OpenGL4. I'm pretty sure the WiiU's gpu is based on Radeon 5xxx level stuff, which only supported OpenGL 3.2, so it's unlikely.
