3D News, GL, DirectX "Nouveau is a community project that is working on producing open-source 3D display drivers for NVIDIA graphics cards. Nouveau is not affiliated with Nvidia Corp and is an X.Org project. While this project is still far from being completed, for this holiday special we are sharing some of our first thoughts on this project from our experience thus far. We would like to make it very clear, however, that the Nouveau driver is no where near completed and still has a great deal of work ahead for the 3D component. This article today will also hopefully shed some light on the advancements of this project so far."

People also said that the limit of requirements for RAM, or CPU cycles, or hard disk space, or portable storage size, or screen resolution, or whatever has been reached. They said that all time, and were proven wrong every single time.

As for the domain of graphics processing, and in a general sense specialized parallel processing for virtual reality implementation, I don't see a sensible limit within the next 50 years.
