The specs from 3Dlabs resolution table is giving by pixels maximum! It is possible for ATI to handle completing two vector 3 operations and 2 scalar operations in combination with a texture operation every clock cycle. Graphics performancecomes close to that of the V, delivering million vertices persecond. Since the texture unit does not share hardware with either of the shader math units, ATI is able to handle theoretically more math per clock cycle in its pixel shaders than NVIDIA.

And like the V, the X provides two DVI-I connectorsto support any combination of digital flat panel and analog displays atresolutions up to 3 ; and one of the DVI-I connectors supportsdual-link for ultra-high-resolution displays.
For those looking for a relatively affordable high-end AGP-basedgraphics accelerator for an existing system, the FireGL X may firsgl the bill see Figure 5, below. It is possible for ATI to handle completing two vector 3 operations and 2 scalar operations in combination with a texture operation every clock cycle.
We can see that the ATI vector unit supports the parallel operation of a 4x bit vector unit and a bit scalar unit. The VPU is similar, with 6 geometry engines and 12 pixelpipelines. The specs from 3Dlabs resolution table is giving by pixels maximum!
Its higher power consumption meansthat the V requires the use of a 6-pin 12V power cable. In terms of pricefor performance, ATI Technologies appears to have the edge, deliveringsomewhat better benchmark results for slightly less money across itsentire product line. As far as rasterization is concerned, ATI does not support any floating point framebuffer display types.
This is the same system reviewed in the August issue of DE. Of course, we would rather see a pipeline part, but we’ll have to wait until we evaluate PCI Express graphics workstations for that. This is what the hardware ends up looking like: MCAD users now have lotsof worthwhile choices.
While the Wildcat4 -or even the VP Pro have a very stable screen at maximum resolution. Any comment will be appreciated, Best regards, Jean Reply. Quad-buffered stereo 3D support – This enables smooth real-time stereoscopic image output by supporting a front-left, back-left, front-right, and back-right buffer for display. While NVIDIA has been the dominant player in the workstation graphicsarena for many years, these new graphics accelerators from ATI provethat this company has caught up.
Two DVI-I connectorsagain provide dual-screen support. On ATI hardware, data out of setup is tiled into those 16×16 blocks for ayi hierarchical z pass.
While the board offers two videoconnectors, to reduce cost it provides a single digital DVI connectorand an analog VGA connector. Undoubtedly, the FireGL line also features a firregl memory management setup and driver development focuses more heavily on OpenGL and stability.
ATI FireGL X3-256
Dual displays are again supported via two DVI-I outputs, with fiergl of maximum resolutions up to 3 pixels per display. Graphics performancecomes close to that of the V, delivering million vertices persecond. This can significantly speed fireegl things like displaying pop-up windows or selection highlights in 3D applications. I wonder if the FireGL X3 will do the job? But the V also supports dual link for ultra-high resolution9-megapixel displays, providing a maximum resolution of 3 when connected to a single ultra-high-resolution display.

ATI FireGL X Technology – Workstation Graphics: AGP Cross Section
I send it back, and I’m looking for an other card. To further aid comparison, we retestedall of the accelerators using the latest version 8. After hearing for years about a new PC graphics hardware standard, thePCI Express bus was finally announced last summer. This is useful for viewing cut-away objects. I cannot find it on the specs.
This obviously indicates that 2 of the geometry engines don’t handle full DX9 functionality. When we tackle the PCI Express workstation market, we’ll bring out a clearer picture of how ATI’s highest end fregl component stacks up against the rest of the competition.
In the June issue of DE p. To test the FireGL X board, we installed it in a 3. This is much higher quality and faster than FSAA when used for wireframe graphics, and is of the utmost importance to designers who use workstations for wireframe manipulation firevl majority of the 3D workstation market.
