Over the last decade, volume rendering has become an invaluable visualization technique for a wide variety of applications. Mitsubishi Electric s VolumePro is the world s first single-chip realtime volume rendering system for consumer PCs. VolumePro achieves significantly higher levels of performance and image quality than has previously existed. The system renders 500 million interpolated, Phong illuminated, composited samples per second. This is sufficient to render volumes with up to 16 million voxels
