German translation:Guard Band Clipping
Explanation:
Überraschung!

It took a while - you confused me with the banding, but my developer friends here assure me it has to be guard band clipping

The attached link contains more techie denglish than I have seen in a long time...

btw in case you are interested:

Guard band clipping is a hardware feature that allows games to avoid spending CPU cycles on clipping triangles. Software triangle clipping is a very CPU-intensive operation. Clipping against the screen boundaries can require clipping the vertex position, diffuse color, specular color, and all texture coordinates ( up to 8 sets ).
