The specs from 3Dlabs resolution table is giving by pixels maximum! It’s these blocks on which each quad pipe shares its efforts. Anti-aliased points and lines – Lines and points are smoothed as they’re drawn in wireframe mode.

The highest accuracy framebuffer that the FireGL X supports is a bit integer format, which is good enough for many applications today. Even 3Dlabs was unable to give me the necessary support and do not answer anymore!
While the Wildcat4 -or even the VP Pro have a very stable screen at maximum resolution. Of course, we would rather see a pipeline part, but we’ll have to wait until we evaluate PCI Express graphics workstations for that. I cannot find it on the specs. As the ATI part isn’t positioned as an ultra high end workstation solution, we’ll be focusing more on price performance.
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. This is much higher quality and faster than FSAA when used for wireframe graphics, and is of 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. 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.
This is useful for viewing cut-away objects. This obviously indicates that 2 of the geometry engines don’t handle full DX9 functionality.

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. On ATI hardware, data out of setup is tiled into those 16×16 blocks for the hierarchical z pass.
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.
We can see that the ATI vector unit supports the parallel operation of a 4x bit vector unit and a bit scalar firefl. 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”. As soon I reduced the resolution from the main monitor firsgl bywas everything stable, but that’s not what I want, I need the maximum resolution on the main monitor.
What are exactly the several resolutions possible with the FireGL X3 using 2 monitors? The internals are the differentiating factor. I just had a bad experience with the Realizm !
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.
This is what the hardware ends up looking like: Undoubtedly, the FireGL line also features a different memory management setup and driver development focuses more heavily on OpenGL and stability. But we’ll have to see how that pans out when we’ve taken a firehl at the numbers. I wonder if the FireGL X3 will do the job? Any comment will be appreciated, Best regards, Jean Reply.
The overall flow of data is very similar to the Quadro, except, of course, that the ATI part runs with 12 pixel pipelines rather than Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. The FireGL can only support between and shader instructions depending on the conditions, and uses fp24 for processing.
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.
