    3D graphics performance is increasing faster than any other computing application. Almost all PC systems now include 3D graphics accelerators for games, computer aided design or visualisation applications. This article investigates the suitability of field programmable gate array devices as an accelerator for implementing 3D affine transformations. Proposed solution based on processing large matrix multiplication have been implemented, for large 3D models, on the RC1000 Celoxica board based development platform using Handel-C. Outstanding results have been obtained for the acceleration of 3D transformations using fixed and floating-point arithmetic.
