You can click on the picture to see minimal fps results. Putting the back buffer into AGP memory can be desirable to free up local memory for video overlay. End of discrete story The Intel was expected to take large chunk of marker share, but instead struggled on mature markets. Local memory chips are usually rated for 10ns, that means minimal room for overclocking. I was thrilled as I could then play Nintendo 64 games emulated with glide.

They used an AGP-to-PCI bridge chip and had more on-board aggp for storing textures locally on the card, and were actually faster than their AGP counterparts in some performance tests. Quality of texture filtering is great just like many other operations.

Riva TNT was a giant step forward all around. If only people looked at the card. Last edited by Scrotos on Mon Jun 29, 3: That is why PCI cards were supposed to do better, in fact it was widespread believe because nobody made a comparative review.

Any chance that Intel will try again with discrete GPUs? The problem was most games were designed ahp 3dfx Glide or ran best on Voodoo in general back then.

i40 What I’ve seen with mipmaps on was a bit of dithering along the edges, which hardly improves image quality. The Intel is optimized for a 2d resolution of x and a 3d at qgp Auburn was designed specifically to take advantage of and promote the use of AGP interface, during the time when many competing 3D accelerators notably, 3dfx Voodoo Graphics still used the PCI connection.
Check out i gallery. IntelIntel Extreme Graphics. It is because of this technology, coupled with the ability to transfer on the sidebands ijtel the AGP Bus allow the StarFighter to run in resolutions up to x in both 2D and 3D situations. Intel purchased the whole company in July and put their 2d expertise into good use.
Sometimes unnecessary color banding appears like in red sky of Incoming.
However, at the time of acquisition they were losing market to NeoGeo. The 3d and 2d engines are managed by the pipeline preprocessor allowing them a sustained flow of graphics data.
Mon Jun 29, 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 gap my systems.

Recalling how they wrote their articles makes me kinda cringe though; they’re such old fuddy duddies. I was excited about them at the time. I don’t think i had particularly bad driver support. End of discrete story The Intel was expected to take large chunk of marker share, but instead struggled on mature markets. Excitement was all gone when Voodoo2 ontel at the same time and completely eclipsed it.
That link was an eye opener; the AGP version was legitimately faster. Too bad the motherboard does not have option to disable L2 of ontel CPU, maybe then It had a good feature set too. Comcast is known to the State of California to cause Internet cancer.
