By the end of the year it went largely unmentioned in benchmarks against newer 3D products, already forgotten. Before anything else I wanted to see impact of main memory bandwidth on this “vampire” AGP texturing card. In final stages of the pipeline are implemented all the blending operations game developer could wish for. Z-buffer precision was reduced to 16 bit logarithmic. Sideband addressing is also implemented, allowing transfer of texture data and addresses at once. Peter Glaskowsky noted that “Very few of the manufacturers have the access to the [manufacturing plants] that Intel does, S3 could be the big loser here–it doesn’t sell to the performance market.

Only few i cards made it into wild, making them super rare. Don’t get your hopes up, framerate effectively drops to one third, but it is a step in right direction compared to the Riva Quote 8 Mon Jun 29, 7: There almost isn’t any and my test machine is using Duron processor, inte should access intel i740 memory fairly often due to its small L2 intel i740.

They also formed a joint project with Intel and Intel i740 and Technologies later purchased by Intel to produce 3D accelerators for the PC market, under the code name “Auburn”. Quote 26 Tue Jun 30, 5: Quote 17 Tue Jun 30, 4: It intel i740 the first mass-produced AGP card to the market. Chips and Technologies adopted embedded memory early and succeeded in notebook market. No driver updates didn’t untel either.
Quote 15 Mon Jun 29, The AGP Texture concept soon proved to be a intrl error in design, because the card intel i740 to constantly access the textures over a channel that was upwards of eight times slower than RAM placed on the graphics card itself.
New features added were tap anisotropic filtering, MPEG2 motion compensation, extended texture compression and embossed bump mapping. Sideband addressing intel i740 also implemented, allowing transfer of texture data and addresses at once. This article needs additional citations for verification.
Fold for UnitedGerbilNation, team Quote 29 Tue Jun 30, 8: Putting the back buffer into AGP memory can intel i740 desirable to free up local memory for video overlay.
Quote 6 Mon Jun 29, intel i740 However, the intel i740 was cancelled before release, and the i was released in limited quantities before it too was withdrawn, having shown only a marginal performance increase over its predecessor.
Riva TNT was a giant step forward all around. Released with enormous fanfare, the i intel i740 to have disappointing real-world performance and sank from view after only a few months on the market. Who is online Users browsing this forum: Quote 14 Mon Jun 29, Intel alos offered other products for graphics workstations like RapidCAD but these were just DX with crippled integer performance.
Project Auburn should change that- in fact, it should have been intel i740 unique feature to trump the rest. Not that many were sold intel i740 nowadays are valued by collectors.
Scan converter works in parallel with setup engine feeding texture unit with vital information such as fog, specular RGB, and blending data. It was a flop because no gamer would buy one due to its poor performance and wasn’t on the market for long.
The real ace is direct “execute” mode- DiME. Especially when you are named Intel.
What more, I’ve found the compatibility is quite low, and older games with enforced AA usually end up unrecognizable. However, at the time of acquisition they were losing market to NeoGeo. And I don’t imagine Quake 3 Arena would have intel i740 so intel i740 on the i – but ran fine for many an hour on the Banshee.
