It had acceptable performance for its heyday with its cost. The i can execute multiple 3d commands at the same time and each stage of the pipeline can simultaneously work on different primitives or portions of the same primitive. Tue Jun 30, 8: In January , just one month before launch, Intel started buying substantial amount of Real3D shares. And of course Intel had its massive OEM channels. Not that many were sold and nowadays are valued by collectors.

Only few i cards made it into wild, making them super rare. Experience There is one more feature to cover, behold:.

Intel i740

This is enough to deal with 10, triangles per frame, between 75 and pixels per triangle, at 30 frames per second. 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. Desktop – i5 K 4. Project Auburn should change that- in fact, it should have been the unique feature to trump the rest.

But it is using only sixteen bit data bus, half of AGP width and sideband addressing ability is lost as well. Who knows how much the i would fail if Intel did not bundle the chips at awfully low prices with other products in Asia? And I don’t imagine Quake 3 Arena would have run so well on the i – but ran fine for many an hour on the Banshee. There almost isn’t any and my test machine is using Duron processor, which should access main memory fairly often due to its small L2 cache.


I guess giving away video cards is not so good for the bottom line. The 3d and 2d engines are managed by the pipeline preprocessor allowing them a sustained flow of graphics data. But getting a taste of the technology is easy, since i was integrated into the i and following chipsets and served Intel’s platform for four years.

Intel i740 Graphics

In September Lockheed announced a “customer-focused organizational realignment” that shed many of its divisions, and then closed Real3D on 1 October following Calcomp in late Intel and Real3D did their best to exploit AGP possibilities and deeply buffered the pipeline to hide host latencies.

No registered users and 2 guests. Shadow of Grim Fandango has problems. The original Larrabee project comes to mind.

The upper half displays default settings, below is subpixel AA at work. If only people looked at the card. I was excited about them at the time.

Despite all the image quality praise I have some doubts about subpixel accuracy of i 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.

Experience There is one more feature to cover, behold: Mon Jun 29, 5: Coming from a futuristic world of expensive simulations, Real3D was a spun off by Lockheed Martin and targeting growing civilian market. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. When i AGP failed to reach high end expectations some reviewers blamed the AGP texturing for slowing down actually powerful accelerator.


And of course Intel had its massive OEM channels.

I tested the green one, but there is no real difference. Chips and Technologies adopted embedded memory early and succeeded in notebook market.

These more complicated boards with more total memory cost around twice as much as discounted AGP cards, but that was still reasonable. Wed Jul 01, Recalling how they wrote their articles makes me kinda cringe though; they’re such old fuddy duddies.

Intel Real3D i Starfighter review

It was a flop because inteo gamer would buy one due to its poor performance and wasn’t on the market for long. Intel’s chipset has its successor, i, inside. In JanuaryLockheed Martin re-organized their divisions and formed Real3D in order to bring their 3D experience to the civilian market.
