I made no special settings in the CAD systems because all necessary ones were made by the test packet itself. Well, let’s go with what we have: With the OpenGL they are absent but the speed is rather low. I used the OpenGL and operation under a special driver. This is because, in my opinion, later versions of 3Dmark especially have shown suspicious results under different conditions. The Wildcat’s cards show stable operation and score quite good results.

First I’ll show all the diagrams and then we will elaborate the results. The Wildcats VP take the second place almost everywhere being behind the Quadro 4. You attempt to run quake3 or Max Payne on a 3Dlabs oxygen, it will look pretty abysmal.

Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. OpenGL was chosen to the well-known reasons. This is because, in my opinion, later versions of 3Dmark especially have shown suspicious results under different conditions.

Video 3Digests Video cards: I supposed that the performance was limited by the CPU. Subscribe to our newsletter. Taking off the cooler we can see the card’s heart – the mysterious VPU P Archived from the original on December 18, 3rlabs The Wildcat line offers cards for any applications and for any purses. All other optimization modes were off!


Debugged drivers are the most important quality of a wiildcat accelerator. During the operation I noticed no troubles there. Today the 3Dlabs’ pretensions on the professional cards market will be judged again. And now it’s time for a new comparison.

So, here are the scores. Well, there is nothing to comment on because pros can make their own conclusions, and others don’t need anything more: At present the company has the documents for OpenGL 2.

In the past six years, we’ve seen companies like 3Dfx, PowerVR and Nvidia hogging more and more of the spotlight, and if these cards are faster than hugely expensive professional offerings why would we even bother to spend out on these 2 foot long dinosaurs?

Its GLINT SX graphics processor was the industry’s first single chip, 3D-capable 3xlabs device that was shipped on graphics boards from multiple vendors. The screening can help wildcxt many problems in 2D.

In February,3Dlabs announced that it would stop developing professional 3D graphic chips and focus on embedded and mobile media processors. I have wildxat almost all the benchmarks I usually use for testing professional solutions.


For me, Radeon is more interesting. Archived from the original on February 8, As a result, the cards now differ in speeds.

Meanwhile, 3Dlabs doesn’t disclose the chip’s frequencies, and I don’t know why. The letter “P” was chosen in reference to the previous Permedia chips. This sample is 3dlab shielded.

Look at what you get with this card. So how can market shares be gained? The competition in this market 3elabs is really great. Wikimedia Commons has media related to 3Dlabs video cards.
