a guy at a local computer shop was telling me about a card he had ordered, rather expensive too. anyway it descriptions is bit likie nothing i have every heard about, but it dont mean no one has ever created one.
he described a custom card that has the ATI radeon9500 chipset, 512 DDR memmory and a onboard athlone 1800+. he said it carries it own CPU so that the card never has to use the main CPU, and that the main CPU can even pass information to the card. I have never heard of a video card that has its own CPU. if such a product exsist does anyone have a link?

graphics cards have a GPU, graphical processing unit, so they can use hardware rendering without relying heavily on CPU time
