I tested the green one, but there is no real difference. Discussion about old graphics cards, monitors and video related things. After all, the chip in control of 32bit AGP addressing can use up to 2GB of write combined system memory. Turok on the hand reported incredible fps. No registered users and 1 guest. Proper texturing in MDK requires chroma key blending.

A number of companies had cards to introduce on that day. The Intel is optimized for a 2d imtel740 of x and a 3d at x 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.

The Industry’s Foundation for High Performance Graphics

Some of it is used for scene data and commands in any case of 3d rendering. The texture unit not only has a texel cache for fast filtering, but also for both texture coordinate and blending data. Like their writers grew up in the 70’s and never outgrew it. In Direct3d AGP cards are trading blows, on average performance is equal.

End of discrete story The Intel was expected to take large chunk of marker share, but instead struggled on mature markets. It required ag; bridge chip emulating AGP texturing with on-board memory, since i can only work with AGP aperture.


Good for the card alone, but AGP memory is of course allocated in main memory.

They used an AGP-to-PCI bridge chip and had more on-board memory for storing textures locally on the ag;, and were actually faster than their AGP counterparts in some performance tests. Intel alos offered other products for graphics workstations like RapidCAD but these were just DX with crippled integer performance.

Remember the Intel !? – TR Forums

By the end of the year it went largely unmentioned in benchmarks against newer 3D products, already forgotten. Views Read Edit View history.

In AprilIntel announced two successors to the i Beyond that, it’s 3D acceleration capability is pretty hopeless.

Taiwanese vendors jumped after the inte,740 and lowered prices as much as possible, cannibalizing on Real3D’s own Starfighter boards.

I was thrilled as I could then play Nintendo 64 games emulated with glide. It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Intel40 is known to the State of California to cause Internet cancer. Intel no longer hosts i drivers, and advises owners of ibased cards to use the drivers. High ambitions of Real3D did not last long.


Mon Jun 29, 8: Shadow of Grim Fandango has problems. You either like them or hate them.

Intel Real3D i Starfighter review

Meanwhile ibtel740 refresh part was being designed, the i Only few i cards made it into wild, making them super rare. The 3d and 2d engines are managed by the pipeline preprocessor allowing them a sustained flow of graphics data. It turned out i is not about performance leadership, but mid-range cost effectiveness. As the introduction approached, rumors of poor performance started circulating.

The peak bandwidth of AGP 1. Inte7l40 the lead-up to the i’s introduction, the press widely commented that it would drive all of the smaller vendors from the market. Retrieved from ” https: Who is online Users browsing this forum: Not that many were sold and nowadays are valued by collectors.

Putting the back buffer into AGP memory can be desirable to free up local memory for video overlay.
