However, at the time of acquisition they were losing market to NeoGeo. Good for the card alone, but AGP memory is of course allocated in main memory. Real3D had an early brush with success, providing chipsets and overall design to Sega , who used it in a number of arcade game boards, the Model 2 and Model 3. As of , they are also Intel’s last graphics chips used on discrete cards. Intel no longer hosts i drivers, and advises owners of ibased cards to use the drivers. Two megabytes are enough only for xx16 double buffered resolution, but the i can relocate pretty much any buffer to AGP aperture to get around this limit.

The PCI ID Repository

A number of companies had cards to introduce on that day. It was ready l740 release in spring but computer makers were not at all interested in it. By the end of the year it went largely unmentioned in benchmarks against newer 3D products, already forgotten. Any chance that Intel will try again with discrete GPUs? They also formed a joint project with Intel and Chips and Technologies later purchased by Intel to produce 3D accelerators for the PC market, under the code name “Auburn”.


Very sad, but compatibility with old games is good enough. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.

Performance Choosing competitor for gaming benchmarks was easy. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Maybe it is about time to make one? No registered users and 1 guest. Tue Jun 30, 9: You can click on the picture to see minimal fps results. The upper half displays default settings, below is subpixel AA at work. Most common are cards with 8 MB of memory, but even 2 and 4 MB versions were on sale. In the lead-up to the i’s introduction, the press widely commented that it would drive all of the smaller vendors from the market. Vintage3D is run by a guy who calls himself Putas around the web.

Intel also sold the i to 3rd party companies, and some PCI versions of the accelerator also were made. Intel claimed high transformation, shading and fillrate figures, but real world usage could not get anywhere near and low compatibility buried its future as a CPU.

Lci required special bridge chip emulating AGP texturing pck on-board memory, since i can only work with AGP aperture.

Only few i cards made it into wild, making them super rare. Intel aborted the chip before high volume production and instead of improving they chose to scrap whole discrete video business almost immediately. Therefore, manufacturers were able to produce cards with as low as 2 MB of onboard memory one such example being Intel’s own Express 3D graphics card.


Don’t get your hopes up, framerate effectively drops to one third, but it is a step in right direction compared to the Riva This licensing tag was added to this file as part of the GFDL licensing update. I don’t even have old pic Powerstrip to be able to change the frequency so overclocking investigation may come later.
