Fujitsu's MB14241, One of the First GPU's
Promotional flyer for Space Invaders: an arcade display on the bottom-right corner is shown over a laser cannon surrounded by aliens and saucers; the background contains the screen against a background of a canyon and a block mountain; the Space Invaders and Taito logos are displayed on the top of the poster.
During the 1970s Fujitsu's MB14241 video shifter or video display controller was used to accelerate the drawing of sprite graphics for various 1970s arcade games from Taito and Midway, such as Gun Fight (1975), Sea Wolf (1976), and Space Invaders (1978). The MB14241 may have been the earliest graphics processing unit (GPU).
