RIVA 128

One of the first consumer graphics processing units to integrate 3D acceleration in addition to traditional 2D and video acceleration.

Released in August 1997 by Nvidia, the RIVA 128, or "NV3", was one of the first consumer graphics processing units to integrate 3D acceleration in addition to traditional 2D and video acceleration. Its name is an acronym for Real-time Interactive video and animation accelerator.

Following the less successful "NV1" accelerator, the RIVA 128 was the first product to gain Nvidia widespread recognition. It was also a major change in technological direction for Nvidia.
