Bitboys to show off revised version of their Acceleron at SIGGRAPH

Anyone who remembers Bitboys? Well on the upcoming SIGGRAPH show in Los Angeles, starting in August 8, they will show of their latest graphics chip. Last year at SIGGRAPH they showed of their Acceleron mobile and handheld graphics chip, and this year they will apparently show of a revised version.
Bitboys continues to prove to be the great white whale of the graphics industry. Although the company has promised to deliver lines of graphics chips that boast impressive specifications, the company has yet to announce any recent design wins. Bitboys does not actually produce the chips, but licenses them to customers for fabrication.

The new chips will feature "high-quality full-screen anti-aliasing, hardware texture decompression, programmable geometry and pixel shaders, and support for hardware vector graphics rendering." The new chips will boast "lifelike" 3D rendering capabilities, and will be especially designed for mobile phones.
