I am looking for a resonable inexpensive graphic chip (set) that will
do the following:

	Resolution:	about 512 by 256
	Colors:		8 to 16
	Figures:	30 to 60 per screen - clear outlines
			1/3	-	30 by 30 pixels
			1/3	-	15 by 15 pixels
			1/3	-	large figures
	Update:		20 screens per second - all conditions
	Refresh:	Optional
	Application:	You are the object in the middle of the
			picture.  The objects around you move as
			you change your perspective.

	Current Custom Hardware:
	Draws color (8) vectors from length 1 to 256 pixels at any of
	256 angles at a rate of 4 megapixels per second after 3
	microseconds of set-up time (hardware limited at this time).
	Does a background fill (any one color) at 8 megapixels per
	second.  All figures are defined as vectors.  This is not a
	requirement for the new system.

I am willing to also listen to other ideas on how to approach this.

Please mail all information to me concerning vendors and chip (sets).

Thanks in advance.  Dean Fitzgerald
