Submission + - Why tessellation in games is overhyped (pcauthority.com.au)

An anonymous reader writes: Tessellation is a graphical technique that has been given a lot of love by game developers over recent times, including in the new Dragon Age 2 . This is due to the fact that the Fermi architecture underpinning the current generation of NVIDIA cards packs a lot of tessellation grunt, moreso than the competing cards from AMD. This has led to tessellation becoming almost a warcry for NVIDIA, who can't pass up any opportunity to run a tessellation heavy benchmark and point out how impressive the hardware is at it. This article provides a fascinating insight into what tessellation actually is, what it looks like (including some extreme examples), and why the marketing spin is misleading.
