This paper presents a parallel processing system for real-time image generation (RTIG) that employs RISC-like microprocessors to perform geometric computations. It also demonstrates that tuned application-oriented processors can achieve performance ratios superior by one order of magnitude, when compared to the performance achieved by general-purpose processors applied to the same problem. The architecture of a RISC for image generation-RIG is discussed, together with a novel and extremely fast technique to transfer information to a processor
