Last edited by Scrotos on Mon Jun 29, 3: Performance Choosing competitor for gaming benchmarks was easy. But it is using only sixteen bit data bus, half of AGP width and sideband addressing ability is lost as well. That link was an eye opener; the AGP version was legitimately faster. Also, I could not get first Motoracer bilineary filtered with last driver. Who knows how much the i would fail if Intel did not bundle the chips at awfully low prices with other products in Asia? It was a flop because no gamer would buy one due to its poor performance and wasn’t on the market for long.

Intel Announces The Intel 740 3-D Graphics Accelerator Chip

Putting the back buffer into AGP memory can be desirable to free up local memory for video overlay. Only few i cards made it into wild, making them super rare.

In the wake of consumer inteel acceleration Intel decided to develop its own stand alone product competitive with best offerings. Drivers are probably to blame for some flashing textures in Unreal. Z-buffer precision was reduced to 16 bit logarithmic. In Augustafter less than 18 months on the market, Intel withdrew the i from the market. This page was last edited on 9 Decemberat End of discrete story The Intel was expected to take large chunk of marker share, but instead struggled on mature markets.


The real ace is direct “execute” mode- DiME.

There almost isn’t any and my test machine is using Duron processor, which should access main memory fairly often due to its small L2 cache. Intel inhel the whole company in July and put their 2d expertise into good use.

In final stages of the pipeline are implemented all the blending operations game developer could wish for.

In AprilIntel announced two successors to the i Only trouble is with Falcon 7400. Texturing supports power of two rectangular texture sizes up to x intsl Comcast is known to the State of California to cause Internet cancer. Tue Jun 30, 7: And of course Intel had its massive OEM channels. They used an AGP-to-PCI bridge chip and had more on-board memory for storing textures locally on the card, and were actually faster than their AGP counterparts in some performance tests.

Long story short, after owning it for about a year, I complained about its subpar gaming support to the computer OEM. But it was used also as a coprocessor or graphics frontend.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Intel promised their 3d product will show true potential of AGP. It can render full featured triangles per second with an average of pixels per triangle.

The Intel was not high end, but it is almost next gen architecture and has to challenge the best of last year.

The Model M is not for the faint of heart. Real3D had an early brush with success, iintel chipsets and overall design to Segawho used it in a number of arcade game boards, the Model 2 and Model 3. Flying Fox Gerbil God.

Don’t get your hopes up, framerate effectively drops to one third, but it is a step in right direction compared to the Riva No driver updates didn’t help either. Experience There is one more feature to zgp/3d, behold:.
