By leaving this data in main memory , and giving the graphics card a high-speed channel to the data, performance could be improved while also reducing the total amount of memory in the system. However, the i was cancelled before release, and the i was released in limited quantities before it too was withdrawn, having shown only a marginal performance increase over its predecessor.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. By leaving this data in main memoryand giving the graphics vieo a high-speed channel to the data, performance could be improved while also reducing the total amount of memory in the system.

The AGP Texture concept soon proved to be a tremendous error in design, because the card had to constantly access the textures over a channel that was upwards of eight times slower than RAM placed on the graphics card itself. This article needs additional citations for verification. Intel no longer hosts i drivers, and advises owners vidoe ibased cards to use the drivers.

In AprilIntel announced two successors to the i 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. Intel also sold the i to 3rd party companies, and some I70 versions of the accelerator also were made.


They used an AGP-to-PCI bridge chip and had more on-board memory for storing textures locally on the card, and were actually faster than their AGP counterparts in some performance tests. Intel purchased the company’s vireo propertypart of a series on ongoing lawsuits, but laid off the remaining skeleton staff. In JanuaryLockheed Martin re-organized their divisions and formed Real3D in order to bring their 3D experience to the civilian market.

In September Lockheed announced a “customer-focused organizational realignment” that shed many of its divisions, and then closed Real3D on 1 October following Calcomp in late Real3D had an early brush with success, providing chipsets and overall design to Segawho used it in a number of arcade game boards, the Model vieeo and Model 3.

A unique characteristic, which set the AGP version of the card apart from other similar devices on the market, was the use of on-board memory exclusively for the display frame bufferwith all textures being kept in the computer system’s main RAM.

Another successor that was ultimately cancelled in September was the GPU code-named Capitola to be used in conjunction with the similarly ill-fated Timna processor.
