Err... mmm... What is an "NV-series"?

----Quadratic Texture Mapping----
NV1 - "The NV1" seen on Diamond Edge3D
NV2 - Never released
----Polygons Era----
NV3 - Riva128
NV4 - TNT
NV5 - TNT2

The unified thing started with (I think) the TNT2.

I found Riva128 datasheets!!!
I need to check out the Utah-GLX code...
Thanks a lot!
