Geometry Transformation Engine features:
– Operating Performance of 66 MIPS
– 360,000 Flat-Shaded Polygons per second
– 180,000 texture mapped and light-sourced polygons per second

Data Decompression Engine features:
It is responsible for decompressing images and video. Documented device mode is to read three RLE-encoded 16×16 macroblocks, run IDCT and assemble a single 16×16 RGB macroblock. Output data may be transferred directly to GPU via DMA. It is possible to overwrite IDCT matrix and some additional parameters, however MDEC internal instruction set was never documented.

– Compatible with MJPEG and H.261 files
– Operating Performance of 80 MIPS
– Directly connected to CPU Bus
