To sum it all up, the Wildcat II is the most powerful card out there for the hardcore 3D animator. Too any artifacts and no expected speed growth. But this test is synthetic, and before making final conclusions let’s take a look at the real applications. The runs on the more common AGP 2. It’s interesting that the PCB has a cut-out where all its 8 layers are enumerated the whole line Wildcat VP has 8 layers. Here are the drivers used in the tests the versions available at the time of testing:

VGA Legacy MKIII – 3DLabs Wildcat VP Pro
It stands for a very powerful Visual Processing Unit codenamed P Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: All articles with dead external links Articles with dead external links from September Articles with permanently dead external links. The accessories are also very similar to what we saw above: The Wildcat Realizm has MB of local memory, but if needed, it could have swapped paged out up to the size of our free idle system memory. Now let’s see what the cards are able of. The hardware itself weighs in at about M transistors and is fabbed on a nm process.
The FireGL turned to be a little weaker.
It feels the same as the in many regards, just not as powerful or fast. Also, are “default professional settings” the same across brands?
We would still like to see an empirical test that could determine the absolute accuracy for a handful of common shaders before we sign off on anything. The scope of this article is limited to single display 3D applications, but if there is demand, we may explore the capabilities of professional cards to drive extremely high resolutions and 2 or more monitors.
Archived from the original on October 18, Well, we will start with the budget series. As in four times faster than the previous Wildcat ! This guide is entirely written on a sheet of paper of the format a bit larger than A4, – it’s strange for a card of such level, but on the other hand, those who buy such cards do not need in-depth manuals much, especially considering that all necessary documents are provided in PDF on a CD; the other CD contains free versions of professional products.
What we can deduce from this is that each of the three physical blocks share common register and cache resources and very likely operate on four pixels with strong locality of reference at a time. The austere stylish solution of the 3Dlabs’ colors shows a photo of the card put inside and its brief description.
Two Wildcat II Graphics Cards Reviewed
Below are screenshots of some programs so that you know other configurations and settings. One should pay more wilcat to the OpenGL controlled cards because 3Dlabs develops the base of this standard. How do these products differentiate themselves? Retrieved from ” https: What are exactly the several resolutions possible with the FireGL X3 using 2 monitors? Video 3Digests Video cards: Film, broadcast and post-production animators, however, will hardly notice the problem.
Well, let’s go with what we have: It speeds up your workflow significantly, making it worth the substantial investment. Archived from the original on February 7, All 3labs optimization modes were off!
We can wait a little, though the market can’t. These processor and memory architecture designs are responsible for the card’s great speed. In most tests the rates two to three times faster than the and the Quadro DCC. Gordon Moore Robert Noyce.
Future reviews will reveal how they stack up.
