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. On ATI hardware, data out of setup is tiled into those 16×16 blocks for the hierarchical z pass. The hierarchical z engine looks at tiles of pixels in the case of the FireGL 16×16 blocksand if the entire block is occluded, up to pixels can be eliminated in one clock. What are exactly the several resolutions possible with the FireGL Tiregl using 2 monitors?
As soon I reduced the resolution from the main monitor to bywas everything stable, sti that’s not what I want, I need the maximum resolution on the main monitor.
The specs from 3Dlabs resolution table is giving by pixels maximum! Any comment will be appreciated, Best regards, Jean Reply.

This puts ATI behind when it comes to video editing, video walls, multi-system displays, and broadcast solutions. Using the main monitor for images analyses quality control and the slave monitor for tools, I was unable to have a stable image at by pixels. I just had a bad experience with the Realizm !
This is much higher quality and faster than FSAA when used for wireframe graphics, and is agi the utmost importance to designers who use workstations for wireframe manipulation the majority of the 3D workstation market.
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 clock cycle. The overall flow of data is very similar to the X33, except, of course, that the ATI part runs with 12 pixel pipelines rather than The FireGL can only support between and shader instructions depending on the conditions, and firgel fp24 for processing.
We can see that the ATI vector unit supports the parallel operation of a 4x bit vector unit and a bit scalar unit. I wonder if the FireGL X3 will do the job?

Anti-aliased points and lines – Lines and points are smoothed as they’re drawn d3 wireframe mode. I cannot find it on the specs. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. This is what the hardware ends up looking like: OpenGL overlay planes – Overlays are useful for adding to a 3D accelerated viewport without making the buffer dirty.
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 pans out when we’ve taken a look at the numbers.
Even 3Dlabs was unable to give me the necessary support and do not answer anymore! As far as rasterization is concerned, ATI does not support any floating point framebuffer display types.
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 isn’t of as much importance in a workstation part, as the fixed function path will be more often stressed, but it’s worth noting that this core is based on the desktop part and we didn’t pick up this information from any of our desktop briefings or data sheets.

The highest tai framebuffer that the FireGL X supports fireggl a bit integer format, which is good enough for many applications today. 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”. 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 internals are the differentiating factor.
