Texels? I've heard o' them but don't actually know what they are, pixels? Textures? I'm confused! I was also wondering what extra texture pipelines do. Thanks for any comments.

I'm not completly sure but if my memory doesn't fail me pixels stands for Picture Element and texel is Texture Element, I thin the Texel concept was intruduced by NVidia with the first geforce boards
