Recalling how they wrote their articles makes me kinda cringe though; they’re such old fuddy duddies.
i in XP – Ars Technica OpenForum
And the price was likely limiting jointly developed PC product as well, since the Auburn did not exactly eclipse the capabilities of Sega Model 3. At Intel’s site I found this: Contemporary graphics accelerators did not fully benefited from Accelerated Graphics Port, new bus anr specially for 3d accelerators that was introduced by Intel’s Pentium II platform.
Tue Jun 30, 9: Intel and Real3D did their best to exploit AGP possibilities and andd buffered the pipeline to hide host latencies. Kansas City, Missouri Registered: Perhaps with more time appropriate platform? Intel’s chipset has its successor, i, inside. Sideband addressing is also implemented, allowing transfer of texture data and addresses at once.
Texture chroma and color key match are supported and two pass trilinear filtering was heralded, but I could not ans such a thing even without mipmapping.
Vintage3D is run by a guy who calls himself Putas around the web. Chroma keying or alpha testing are full speed, alpha blending causes a minor performance decrease.

Just remember the lesson of i A couple of years later, the OEM went i70 of business Quantex. There are similarities, but there are vast differences. To this day Intel has not come out of its fortress of integrated graphics, but ambitions are still there as Larabee projects prove.
That link was an eye opener; the Adn version was legitimately faster. Mon Jun 29, 3: Mon Jun 29, 9: What more, I’ve found the compatibility is quite low, and older games with enforced AA usually end up unrecognizable.
Runs Quake3 like a one legged dog, but playable at some low settings.
The Industry’s Foundation for High Performance Graphics
Don’t get your hopes up, framerate effectively drops to one third, but it is a step in right direction compared to the Riva It pretty much cemented the adoption of AGP which was Intel’s real goal.
They also formed a joint project with Intel and Chips and Technologies later purchased by Intel to produce 3D accelerators for the PC market, under the code name “Auburn”. I suspect that they will be the only game in town before too long.
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.
After all, the chip in control of 32bit AGP addressing can use up to 2GB of write combined system memory. Board index Hardware Graphics. Not that many were sold and nowadays are valued by collectors.
