The i has a long and storied history that starts at GE Aerospace as part of their flight simulation systems, notable for their construction of the Project Apollo “Visual Docking Simulator” that was used to train Apollo Astronauts to dock the Command Module and Lunar Module. 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. 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 Intel , Intel Extreme Graphics.

However, the i was cancelled before release, and the i was released in limited quantities l752 it too was withdrawn, having shown only a marginal performance increase over its predecessor. Pay your attention to wrong fog realization in Giants. Need For Speed 5 Porshe IntelIntel Extreme Graphics.

July Learn how and when to remove this template message. 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.

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. Peter Glaskowsky noted that “Very few of the manufacturers have the access to the [manufacturing plants] that Intel does, S3 could be the big loser here–it doesn’t sell to the performance market.


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 bufferinetgrated all textures being kept in the computer system’s main RAM. Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

In addition, given adapter works only in bit color mode, and due to this there are color dithering problems or it doesn’t work grahpics all. By the end of the year it went largely unmentioned in benchmarks against newer 3D products, already forgotten.

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.

September’ 3Digest: i Graphics (i)

Intel no longer hosts i drivers, and advises owners of ibased cards to use the drivers. Released with enormous fanfare, the i proved to have disappointing real-world performance [1]and sank from view after only a few months on the market.

This can be solved by disabling fog at game start. Video 3Digests Video cards: Intel has the resources to beat S3 on those terms and they have the performance”. Gordon Moore Robert Noyce.

Of course this GPU is not intended for superb 3D-graphics as well as for latest game requirements, therefore some bugs in the newest games may be not bugs but features. Articles needing additional references from July All articles needing additional references.


But the last is sometimes even worse than 2. This article needs additional citations for verification. 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. By Andrey Vorobiev This chip is presented by i graphic processor integrated into i chipset.

In addition, the last but one version made bad perfomance even worse, thus I can’t advise you to use version 2. A number of integrates had cards to introduce on that day.

Given accelerator is an integrated solution, built into the system chipset, and therefore having it’s 3D perfomance cut. Hamidi Intel Corporation Inc. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

They also formed a joint project with Intel and Chips and Technologies later purchased by Intel to produce 3D accelerators for the PC market, under the code name “Auburn”. Intel purchased the company’s intellectual propertypart of a series on ongoing lawsuits, but laid off the remaining skeleton staff. Though there’s no soaping effects up to x, the 2D-graphics speed isn’t even fair. In AprilIntel announced two successors to the i There’s no sense in discussing 3D speed features, because they are lower than those of all other cards.
