Experience There is one more feature to cover, behold: Proper texturing in MDK requires chroma key blending. All of its local onboard graphics memory was used purely as a display frame buffer. Intel has the resources to beat S3 on those terms and they have the performance”. When i AGP failed to reach high end expectations some reviewers blamed the AGP texturing for slowing down actually powerful accelerator. Don’t get your hopes up, framerate effectively drops to one third, but it is a step in right direction compared to the Riva

The Intel was pic high end, but it is almost next gen architecture and has to challenge the best of last year. Very sad, but compatibility with old games is good enough. I suspect that they will be the only game in town before too long.


The i processor itself remains hidden by the massive heatsink on the StarFighter, during normal operation the heatsink is warm to the touch, however it is nothing you should worry about. But getting a taste of the technology is easy, since i was integrated into the i and following chipsets and served Intel’s platform for four years.

Intel promised their 3d product will show true pic of AGP. Only trouble is with Falcon 4.

Having reduced texture transfers to a fraction of usual amount the i achieves amazing performance considering its reliance on system memory.
