    Because the architecture is tiled, the advantage of ordered rendering typical of primitive crossbar techniques is misplaced. Also, the tiling contributes to a latency of up to 3 frames, which is considerably higher than the single-frame latencies of the Freedom and the RealityEngine methods. The rendering efficiency, especially the effective fragment generation/processing rate, is substantially larger than either the Freedom or RealityEngine methods, leading to easily maintained 1,280 × 1, frame/s picture era. However, Pixel Planes 5 cannot anti-alias geometry at these high rates, so the picture quality is decrease than that of RealityEngine. Specially designed or upgraded operating systems …
