It’s good to know the situation was a little rosier than I thought, and hilarious to know it was benchmarked on a Duron. By the way my setting for general testing is MHz CL2. No driver updates didn’t help either. It can render full featured triangles per second with an average of pixels per triangle. Sometimes unnecessary color banding appears like in red sky of Incoming. Quality of texture filtering is great just like many other operations. However, at the time of acquisition they were losing market to NeoGeo.

Shadow of Grim Fandango has problems. 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.

Only few i cards made it into wild, making them super rare. New features added were tap anisotropic filtering, MPEG2 motion compensation, extended texture compression and embossed bump mapping. The AGP Texture concept soon proved to be a tremendous error in design, because the card had to constantly agl the textures over a channel that was upwards of eight times slower than RAM placed on the graphics card itself.

Remember the Intel !? – TR Forums

Mon Jun 29, Alpha and depth tests are conducted, determining whether the frame and depth buffers will be updated with new pixel values. It would be impossible to get decent performance with plain AGP DMA transfers, where whole textures are being uploaded into local memory.


The i has a long and storied history that starts at GE Aerospace as part of their flight simulation systems, notable for i70 construction of the Project Apollo “Visual Docking Simulator” that was used to train Apollo Astronauts to dock the Command Module and Lunar Module.

No driver updates didn’t help either.

Flying Fox Gerbil God. Log in Don’t have an account? Another successor that was ultimately cancelled in September was the GPU code-named Capitola to be used in conjunction with the similarly ill-fated Timna processor.

Intel Real3D i Starfighter review

The peak bandwidth of AGP 1. Intel and Real3D did their best to exploit AGP possibilities and deeply buffered the pipeline to hide host latencies. More programmable features of professional class Real3D products such as stenciling were dropped.

Retrieved November 11, The problem was most games were designed around 3dfx Glide or ran best on Voodoo in general back then. It is because of this technology, coupled with the ability to transfer on the sidebands of the AGP Bus allow the StarFighter to run in resolutions up to x in both 2D and 3D situations.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Intel’s chipset has its successor, i, inside. A Voodoo 2 card can easily generate in excess of twice as much heat in the same system. It’s good to know the situation was a little rosier than I thought, and hilarious to know it was benchmarked on a Duron.

Intel i740

Project Auburn should change that- in fact, it should have been the unique feature to trump the rest.


It was a flop because no gamer would buy one due to its poor performance and wasn’t on the market for long. Memory bandwidth tests Before anything else I wanted to see impact of main memory bandwidth on this “vampire” AGP texturing card.

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. And the price was likely limiting jointly developed PC product as well, 7i40 the Auburn did not exactly eclipse the capabilities of Sega Model 3.

Alas, the subsequent integrated Intel video parts were based on them with relatively few tweaks for years afterward That is pretty much 7i40 of my complains, gaming with i AGP on a system with strong CPU is very enjoyable and really fast. Also, I could not get first Motoracer bilineary filtered with last driver. 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.

Rendition V supported AGP and came before i Mon Jun 29, 9:
