Eden Games (group ATARI-Infogrammes) has chosen X-Mesh (from our VSP-Technology start-up) for their next ``Alone in the Dark'' game.

We have signed a Non Disclosure Agreement with NVidia that allows us to have access to their new graphics board before they are commercially available. We have participated in the certification of their drivers for the Quadro 4500 and G-Sync hardware. NVidia has chosen our laboratory to make the public announcement of this hardware in Europe (December, 2). We have ported the NVidia Software Developper Kit to Linux and started to cooperate with them on this topic (with I. Castano and K. Ashido from NVidia).
We have signed a Non Disclosure Agreement with 3DLabs, and we got a Wildcat Realizm graphics board before it is commercially available. We have developped on this card a new approach for vector texture mapping. We met Randy Rost (3DLabs) at Siggraph about these developments.
