The Stellar Graphics Supercomputer Model GS1000Tm is the definitive member of a new class of machines incorporating the architecture and performance of near-supercomputers with a level of graphics performance well beyond the range of traditional terminals and workstations. Designed to eliminate the architectural bottlenecks which limit overall throughput and performance, the GS 1000 includes a number of novel features which significantly narrow the gap between "peak" and achievable performance. This paper will include a brief summary of the overall GS 1000 architecture, but will focus in some detail on the hardware and software components related to graphical computation. Examples of the applicability of Stellar's Virtual Pixel MapsTM facility to both geometric graphics and image processing are provided, as are illustrations as to how these two forms of image computing can be applied to a single application.
