It was quite an advanced chip with significantly higher per clock performance than first Permedia. Environmental mapping is out of the question. Wikimedia Commons has media related to 3Dlabs video cards. Its GLINT SX graphics processor was the industry’s first single chip, 3D-capable graphics device that was shipped on graphics boards from multiple vendors. Addresses are then passed to texture read unit for fetching needed texels. From CT’s 83 MHz you cannot gain more than two megahertz without running into artifacts.

And just like any hardware triangle setup it also reduces bus traffic. Delta also increased floating point and sub pixel precision. Archived from the original on April 27, permwdia Disabling texture modulation can help some d3d games to run.

With focus on integration and performance enhancements 3dlabs succeeded a lot more following year with second pervasive chip. In the end dithering can adjust colors into final format and I did not always like what this stage does. Such a change of mind in last moment could have been shower too cold for gaming ambitions of 3Dlabs, even if they bought CGL license to allow for 3D Blaster compatibility.

However these figures do not take into account any following expensive operation depth test can save, like texture mapping. Default 3Dlabs driver of Windows 98 SE has also something to offer: Otherwise 3d image quality of Permedia 2 can be quite nice.

In the company focused development efforts on its emerging media processing business and in rebranded as ZiiLABS. Media-rich application processors for Handheld and embedded devices.

Triangle setup engine claims MFLOPS just like Delta, but unless it has separate clock domain it had to be redesigned for halved per clock performance. Scissoring and stenciling units remained.

Archived from the original on December 17, When results from driver came together, comparison against similar kind of products like Revolution 3D and Millennium 2 seem to be good idea, but Permedia is lagging behind even more.

Quake 2 or nothing.

Environmental mapping is out of the question. In the end, I got higher than expected results from the card, but after long and patient tweaking. Specification says fillrate is halved when Z-buffering is used, but I checked it and doubt Z-buffer is the culprit here. Views Read Edit View history.

Viper Racing without blending artifacts. Results from GLQuake bigass demo are especially bad as Permedia is playing it with lots of small freezes. For example, make a comparison to PCX. Texture colors in X often show excessive banding and dithering would only add annoying pattern to the mess. Permediaa driver is fine when draw overlap is disabled.

The main feature set addition was “full speed” bilinear filter, however, in the tests performance drop is significant. Then there are all the issues caused by missing multiplicative blending operation.
