Contemporary graphics accelerators did not fully benefited from Accelerated Graphics Port, new bus made specially for 3d accelerators that was introduced by Intel’s Pentium II platform. Article about Intel’s graphics solutions should probably begin with i from , though i from is nowadays often considered more of a “3D accelerator”. Tue Jun 30, 8: Riva TNT was a giant step forward all around. Still, it’s stable and those drivers work. In January , Lockheed Martin re-organized their divisions and formed Real3D in order to bring their 3D experience to the civilian market.

Local memory chips are usually rated for 10ns, u740 means minimal room for overclocking. The Model M is not for the faint of heart. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The i processor itself remains hidden by the massive heatsink on the StarFighter, during normal operation the heatsink is warm to the touch, however it is nothing you should worry about.

In Augustafter less than 18 months on the market, Intel withdrew the i from the market. Probably similar to when they did the Voodoo3 for 2k – 2D driver only, annd that’s just a hypothesis. Intel aborted the chip before high volume production and anc of improving they chose to scrap whole discrete video business almost immediately.


As far as I know, yes, in Windows Riva TNT was a giant step forward all around. Texturing supports power of two rectangular texture sizes up to x Only few i cards made it into wild, making them super rare. Rendition was first with edge AA, Riva introduced super sampled AA with incredible performance hit and now the i can do it sometimes at more acceptable framerates. Retrieved November 11, The original Larrabee project comes to mind.

Check it out NTCompatible. With price taken into account, only the PCI Starfighters were not so competetive, all the bad press AGP cards got does not seem so justified, at least on my systems.

One of the most notable features of the StarFighter AGP has nothing to do with the speed of the chipset, or the construction of the card, rather xnd first class software bundle Real3D provides with this card. Ran fine with 3D Winbench. With a company like Intel it is obvious that the i would have to pack a major punch, and it is clear that it does. Log in Don’t have an account?

In Januaryjust one month before launch, Intel started buying substantial amount of Real3D shares.

Viper Racing needs even older driver to run. Sideband addressing is also implemented, allowing transfer of texture data and addresses at once. As their embedded i video core is basically an update of the i video chip.

Main memory bandwidth can be crucial for performance i74 Intel AGP card as whole system performance suffers. Especially when you are named Intel. Savage3D might be older too Thu Jan 03, But it was used also as a coprocessor or graphics frontend. Intel purchased the whole company in July and put their 2d expertise into good use.

In spite of this, pundits continued to agree that its release would have enormous effects on the market. Very sad, but compatibility with old games is good enough. I guess giving away video cards is not so good for the bottom line.
