Better known as "N-patches" - take a look at the ATI developer site for many papers explaining the technique. Also some of the Meltdown 2001 slides will be of use.

it "enhances" it by adding more polygons (tesselating) using the vertex normals as an indicator of desired surface curvature. (i.e. a mesh with a very polygonal silhouette will come out looking smooth)

And how can I determine when I have reached the peak tesselation of my mesh? The enhanced mesh sample (from DX9) has no limit but as you increase the tesselation, the frame rate lowers.
