I made no special settings in the CAD systems because all necessary ones were made by the test packet itself. This page was last edited on 13 November , at Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. But it’s just an assumption. Archived from the original on February 7,

If it proves to be weighty, the chips work at difference frequencies. In February,3Dlabs announced that it would stop developing professional 3D graphic chips and focus on embedded and mobile media processors.

The differences in the appearance are minimal, and they are all about the chip. With the special driver there wipdcat a lot of artifacts. The FireGL turned to be a little weaker. The tests in the CAD packets were carried out with the special benchmarks from http: The cooler’s attractive color in combination with the PCB’s coffee color have wildcta me over. They boost the performance markedly, and I do recommend using them in 3ds max.

At present the company has the documents for OpenGL 2. I think it’s fair for a professional card because a modern computer can have a lot of pickups, for example, from a power supply unit’s cable. Gordon Moore Robert Noyce. And I have no complains about the drivers in the Wildcat VP line. The 3Dlabs’ driver shouldn’t be used with the ver.


Having taken the cooler off we can see the P10 chip but you can’t tell by the marking whether this one is strong or weak: And this card is oriented mostly toward CAD applications.

Subsidiary of Creative Technology. In August last year we wrote about the 3Dlabs’ completely new approach to production of professional accelerators which was used in creation of VPU P Meanwhile, 3Dlabs doesn’t gp970 the chip’s frequencies, and I don’t know why.

It’s interesting that the PCB has a cut-out where all its 8 layers are enumerated the whole wipdcat Wildcat VP has 8 layers. So, in LightWave the P10 cards have a good speed and good rendering quality. And I assume that the winners took the lead exactly because of the optimization.

When I tested the LightWave for the first time I didn’t have much difference between various cards. Archived from the original on April 22, Permedia was the first low-cost OpenGL accelerator chip.

The Wildcats VP take the second place almost everywhere being behind the Quadro 4. Today the 3Dlabs’ pretensions on the professional cards market wildcaat be judged again. In general, the picture is rather sad. Archived from the original on February 19, Views Read Edit View history.

Taking off the cooler we can see the card’s heart – the mysterious VPU P The 3Dlabs’ cards were tested in the geometry optimization mode because all our previous tests show that a user benefits most of dildcat exactly from this mode in professional applications.

DirectX is a gaming API rather than a professional wildcah, though who knows, maybe the situation will soon change dramatically.

VP stands for Visual Processor. The processors integrate on-chip peripherals and interfaces suitable for a broad range of handheld and embedded devices. The results of this test can be considered a forecast of how the cards can work in real applications.
