The Microsoft DirectX 9 Programmable Graphics Pipeline

Interactive 3-D graphics is one of the most rapidly advancing technologies ever applied to entertainment. The clear trend of increasing entertainment richness and sophistication that started with the era of Pong shows no sign of slowing.

Over the next few years, the visual quality and realism of interactive 3-D graphics will grow to levels comparable to those in non-interactive visual media such as movies and TV. Combining high-quality graphics with interaction produces a rich expressive medium with the potential to actually surpass the expressive power and entertainment value of the linear media of today.

Hardware technology has always been a key component of the interactive medium. It has evolved from the arcade console and engineering workstation technologies of the early 80s into modern PC display accelerator technology that achieves better performance with far greater visual realism at orders of magnitude lower cost.

In addition to the intense innovation in hardware, software has played an increasingly important role. Although hardware is an integral part of the medium, software, as code, art content, and tools, forms the content of the medium itself. Traditionally, only software has had the flexibility to deliver the rich entertainment experience that customers crave.
