That reminds me of graphics coding on the original Nintendo
I had another project back in the late 1980's. We found an algorithm for converting a CMYK measured gamut to RGB via interpolation. The gamut was to used to perform fine-grained correction between a scanned original image and the 35mm film we were imaging on.

I was responsible for implementing the essential algorithm in software. I knew the customer eventually wanted a hardware-accelerated version, as the software version took minutes to process an image. I spent several days refactoring the code to emulate a potential hardware implementation. When I was done, the image processing time was under a second, and the hardware 'implementation' only required a few 100KB of RAM for coefficient tables compute from the 'raw' gamut data. I believe an actual hardware implementation would have been usable in real-time. Unfortunately the project ran out of money before we got that far Cry | :(( .
