On the upside, the main advantage at the time was that 3DLabs was the only company producing consumer-level graphics chips that had full OpenGL ICD driver support other manufacturers didn’t support OpenGL at all or released a miniport driver instead. Its GLINT SX graphics processor was the industry’s first single chip, 3D-capable graphics device that was shipped on graphics boards from multiple vendors. Retrieved from ” https:

However, the Delta geometry co-processor is optimized for professional 3D and CAD applications rather than for games, resulting in anemic overall gaming performance.
Formac also made a oxygrn of Macintosh graphics cards using Permedia 1, 2, and 3 chipsets. Both are also Direct3D 6-compliant. Permedia NT differs from the original in that it features a separate geometry co-processor chip known as Delta for performing geometry setup calculations.
Archived from the original on February 22, The 3D Blaster VLB nowadays is a very rare card and usually if it shows up on auction websites, the price will be very high. Archived from the original on February 8, The Permedia 3, however, had more emphasis on being directed at gaming. Archived from the original on December 18, Later card revisions added AGP 4x support – if purchased in a retail box, there usually 3dalbs be an “AGP 4x” sticker present on the box to indicate such support.
Most gamers at the time opted to upgrade to a PCI Pentium system instead. The Permedia 2 was released in late and was an evolution of the original Permedia. Archived from the original on October 18, Archived from the original on February 7, In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

The Permedia 3 and GLINT R3 also introduced support for hardware dot product bump mapping, but this feature would not be extensively used in games until a year or so after its release.
Archived from the original on December 16, Archived from the original oxyven April 22, Archived from the original on December 17, The Permedia 2 is also 3DLabs’ last graphics chip with Windows 95 support.
Their performance in professional 3D and CAD applications, however, is much better. Display drivers are available for Windows 3. Retrieved from ” https: Gamma was the first single chip graphics geometry processor for the PC.
Games that do take advantage of the 3D Blaster VLB usually run in higher resolution x or x and with additional graphics detail. Likewise with Delta, the Gamma G1 geometry co-processor is not optimized for games.

Permedia was the first oxygfn OpenGL accelerator chip. Its GLINT SX graphics processor was the industry’s first single chip, 3D-capable graphics device that was shipped on graphics boards from multiple vendors. Drivers and limited support for these products can be found at: In February,3Dlabs announced that it would stop developing professional 3D graphic chips and focus on embedded and mobile media processors.
Overall, these chips oxggen definitely not geared towards gaming.
