The highest accuracy framebuffer that the FireGL X supports is a bit integer format, which is good enough for many applications today. Undoubtedly, the FireGL line also features a different memory management setup and driver development focuses more heavily on OpenGL and stability. 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.

Of course, we would rather see a pipeline part, but we’ll have to wait until we evaluate PCI Express graphics workstations for that.

Firegk FireGL can only support between and shader instructions depending on the conditions, and uses fp24 for processing. The internals are the differentiating factor.

I just had a bad experience with the Realizm ! 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 While the Wildcat4 firegoor even the VP Pro have a very stable screen at maximum resolution. This is what the hardware ends up looking like: The specs from 3Dlabs resolution table is giving by pixels maximum! Undoubtedly, the FireGL line also features a different memory management setup and driver firdgl focuses more heavily on OpenGL and stability.
Even 3Dlabs was unable to give me the necessary support and do not answer anymore! 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. As firegk ATI part isn’t positioned as an ultra high end workstation solution, we’ll be focusing more on price performance.

This obviously indicates that 2 of the geometry engines don’t handle full DX9 functionality. Firego wonder if the FireGL X3 will do the job?
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.
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”.
This puts ATI behind when it comes to video editing, video walls, multi-system displays, and broadcast solutions. But we’ll have to see how that pans out when we’ve taken a look at the numbers.
ATi FireGL X Video Card – Reviews, Specifications, and Pictures –
On ATI hardware, data out of setup is tiled into those 16×16 blocks for the hierarchical z pass. Anti-aliased points and lines – Lines and points are smoothed as they’re drawn in wireframe mode. What are exactly the several resolutions 3x with the FireGL X3 using 2 monitors? Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
Since the texture unit does not share hardware with either of the shader math units, ATI is able to handle theoretically more math fidegl clock cycle in its pixel shaders than NVIDIA. 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.

I cannot find it on the specs. It’s these blocks on which each quad pipe shares its efforts.

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.
We can see that the ATI vector unit supports the parallel operation of a 4x bit vector unit and a bit scalar unit. OpenGL overlay planes – Overlays are useful for adding to a 3D accelerated viewport without making the buffer dirty.
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. As far as rasterization ifregl concerned, ATI does not support any floating point framebuffer display types. This is useful for viewing cut-away objects.
