T&L stands for "Transform & Lighting" T&L is a video

technology that takes all the 3D information that used to be

handled by the computer processor and gives it to the GPU (Graphics

Processing Unit). This enables for a more complex 3D environment by

adding a higher polygon count and improving the lighting and at the

same time it allows the computer processor to handle other tasks.
