Archived from the original on December 16, They boost the performance markedly, and I do recommend using them in 3ds max. Permedia was the first low-cost OpenGL accelerator chip. Archived from the original on December 6, The results of this test can be considered a forecast of how the cards can work in real applications. All other optimization modes were off! That is why I can assume that these cards differ only in the speed.

Although this is a cheap solution, it has a screen protecting from various pickups.

DirectX is a gaming API rather than a professional one, though who knows, maybe the situation will soon change dramatically. The card ships in the proprietary package from which you can tell that it’s not a gaming solution. All other optimization modes were off!

But unfortunately, the developers often optimize drivers for this benchmark. The card is equipped with two DVI connectors.

The 3Dlabs’ driver shouldn’t be used with the ver. The results show that the cards of the highest price range have wildct power for such applications.


Archived from the original on December 18, In most tests they outscore the rest. As a rule, image quality is higher in such cards. The competition in this market wikdcat is really great.

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.

The austere stylish solution of the 3dlzbs colors shows a photo of the card put inside and its brief description. In February,3Dlabs announced that it would stop developing professional 3D graphic chips and focus on embedded and mobile media processors. Retrieved from ” https: Video 3Digests Video cards: Today the 3Dlabs’ pretensions on the professional cards market will be judged again.

Moreover, the drivers are sometimes optimized for this test. I consider that the cut-down memory bus is also a speed characteristic. This page was last edited on 13 Novemberat Formac also made a number of Macintosh graphics cards using Permedia 1, 2, and 3 chipsets. The following lines are ticked off in OpenGL drivers in 3ds max: Some time ago we did some tests with this version. The Wildcats VP take the second place almost everywhere being behind the Quadro 4.


The 3Dlabs’ cards were tested in the geometry optimization mode because all our previous tests show that a user benefits most of all exactly from this mode in professional applications. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

Drivers and limited support for these products can be found at: And this card is oriented mostly toward CAD applications. No unnecessary elements, and at the same time the card looks pleasant.

I used the OpenGL and operation under a special driver.

With the special driver there are a lot of artifacts. So, here are the scores. The tests in the CAD packets were carried out with the special wilxcat from http: The soldering quality is very good and the components’ positions are well thought out. But this test is synthetic, and before making final conclusions let’s take a look at the real applications.
