Dreams. (another shot in comments)

The Graphics Processing Unit of a well known console, this chip is capable of taking crystallized data and breathing life into worlds bounded pretty much only by the imaginations and creativity of programmers and artists, and rendering them for the real world to be interacted with.

 

I love the idea that in photography we try and crystallize and capture the real world. I like that the concept that the GPU is kind of the reverse of the camera.

 

Did want to do some tech shots for MacroMondays this week, didnt really get any I liked.

 

Saddly this console was destined for the bin, having expired, I was suprised to see that the major chips, CPU and GPU have a mirror like finish.

 

In shot is the extremly powerful and versitile GPU with its daughter 10 MB eDRAM catching some light on the PCB.
