Tue Jun 30, 9: Alas, the subsequent integrated Intel video parts were based on them with relatively few tweaks for years afterward It was ready for release in spring but computer makers were not at all interested in it. And the price was likely limiting jointly developed PC product as well, since the Auburn did not exactly eclipse the capabilities of Sega Model 3. In the wake of consumer 3d acceleration Intel decided to develop its own stand alone product competitive with best offerings. Performance Choosing competitor for gaming benchmarks was easy.

atp You can click on the picture to see minimal fps results. Alpha and depth tests are conducted, determining whether the frame and depth buffers will be updated with new pixel values.

Intel Starfigter I 8 MB VGA AGP Graphics Card/graphic Card Retro Atga | eBay

Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Before anything else I wanted to see impact of main memory bandwidth on this “vampire” AGP texturing card. Retrieved from ” https: Who knows how much the i would fail if Intel did not bundle the chips at awfully low prices with other products in Asia? Instead of searching the StarFighter for textures stored in the limited local memory of the video card, a 3D game or application will use the Accelerated Graphics Port as a means of retrieving the textures from System Memory, meaning much larger textures can be easily handled and manipulated without even the slightest twitch by the chipset.


Perhaps with more time appropriate platform? Tue Jun 30, 7: Scan converter works in parallel with setup engine feeding texture unit with vital information such as fog, specular RGB, and blending data. No driver updates didn’t help either.

Tested & Working – Graphic Card AGP Intel I740 8mb Memory Atg7400a High Profile

Intel claimed high transformation, shading ihtel fillrate figures, but real world usage could not get anywhere near and low compatibility buried its future as a CPU.

Experience There is one more feature to cover, behold: I guess giving away video cards is not so good for the bottom line.

The AGP Texture concept soon proved to be a tremendous afp in design, because the card had to constantly access the textures over a channel that was upwards of eight times slower than RAM placed on the graphics card itself. Not that many were sold and nowadays are valued by collectors.

I40 i has a long and storied history that starts at GE Aerospace as part of their flight simulation systems, notable for their construction of the Project Apollo “Visual Docking Simulator” that was used to train Apollo Astronauts to dock the Command Module and Lunar Module.

The Intel is optimized for a 2d resolution of x and a 3d at x Retrieved November 11, It can render full featured triangles per second with an average of pixels per triangle. They also formed a joint project with Intel and Chips and Technologies later purchased by Intel to produce 3D accelerators for the PC market, under the code name “Auburn”. Never had the o740 of using one though. 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.


After all, the chip in control of 32bit AGP addressing can use up to 2GB of write combined system memory. Also, I could not get first Motoracer bilineary filtered with last driver.

The peak bandwidth of Aagp 1. Mon Jun 29, 5: A number of companies had cards to introduce on that day.

Exploring the i – Real3D Starfighter

In Direct3d AGP cards are ibtel blows, on average performance is equal. The Model M is not for the faint of heart. Intel no longer hosts i drivers, and advises owners of ibased cards to use the drivers.

Vintage3D is run by a guy who calls himself Putas around the web. I remember them being “meh” for 3D performance, but okay otherwise. In AprilIntel announced two successors to the i Coming from a futuristic world of expensive simulations, Real3D was a spun off by Lockheed Martin and targeting growing civilian market.
