I wonder if the FireGL X3 will do the job? This is what the hardware ends up looking like: I just had a bad experience with the Realizm !
We can see that the ATI vector unit supports the parallel operation of a 4x bit vector unit and a bit scalar unit. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. 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.
The FireGL can only support between and shader instructions depending on the conditions, and uses fp24 for processing. Two-sided lighting – In the fixed function pipeline, enabling two-sided lighting allows hardware lights to illuminate both sides of an object.
But we’ll have to see how that xx3 out when we’ve taken a look at the numbers. The highest accuracy framebuffer that the FireGL X supports is a firsgl integer format, which is good enough for many applications today. What are exactly the several resolutions possible with the FireGL X3 using 2 monitors?
Even 3Dlabs was unable to give me the necessary support and do not answer anymore! Any comment will be appreciated, Best regards, Jean Reply.

As far as rasterization is concerned, ATI does not support any floating point framebuffer display types. It’s these blocks on which each quad pipe shares its efforts. When we tackle the PCI Express workstation market, we’ll bring out a clearer picture of how ATI’s highest end workstation component stacks up against the rest of the competition.
I send it back, and I’m looking for an other card. It is possible for ATI to handle completing two vector 3 operations and 2 scalar operations in combination with a texture operation every riregl cycle. 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.
The internals are the differentiating factor. Of course, we would rather see a pipeline part, but we’ll have to wait until we evaluate PCI Express graphics workstations for that. Interestingly, in the documents that list the features of the FireGL X3, we see that “Full DX9 vertex shader support with 4 vertex units” is mentioned in addition to its “6 geometry engines”.

The overall flow of data is very similar to the Quadro, except, of course, that the ATI figegl runs with 12 pixel pipelines rather than The specs from 3Dlabs resolution table is giving by pixels maximum!

Undoubtedly, the FireGL line also features a different memory management setup and driver development focuses more heavily on OpenGL and stability. OpenGL overlay planes – Overlays are useful for adding to a 3D accelerated viewport without making the buffer dirty.
Anti-aliased points and lines – Lines and points are smoothed as they’re drawn in wireframe mode. As the ATI part isn’t positioned as an ultra high end workstation solution, we’ll be focusing more firregl price performance. This fjregl ATI behind when it comes to video editing, video walls, multi-system displays, and broadcast solutions. I cannot find it on the specs. This is much higher quality and faster than FSAA when used for wireframe graphics, and firegp of the utmost importance to designers who use workstations for wireframe manipulation the majority of the 3D workstation market.
