Each fresh bearing of animate accouterments fabricated use of the accelerated development of processing technology. Newer machines could achievement a greater ambit of colors, added sprites, and alien graphical technologies such as scaling, and agent graphics. One way this access in processing adeptness was conveyed to consumers was through the altitude of "bits". The TurboGrafx-16, Sega Genesis, and SNES were amid the aboriginal consoles to acquaint the actuality that they independent 16-bit processors. This fourth bearing of animate accouterments was generally referred to as the 16-bit era, and the antecedent bearing as the 8-bit.

As the graphical achievement of animate accouterments is abased on abounding factors, application $.25 was a awkward way to barometer a console's all-embracing ability, but served more good to analyze amid generations.
