Mon Jun 29, 9: Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. In Augustafter less than 18 months on the market, Intel withdrew the i from the market. This page was last edited on 9 December i74, at By leaving this data in main memoryand giving the graphics card a high-speed channel to the data, performance could be improved while also reducing the total amount of memory in the system.

End of discrete story The Intel was expected to take large chunk of marker share, but instead struggled on mature markets.

Its architecture consists of dedicated engines executing in parallel to deliver high performance 3d, 2d and video capabilities.

As the introduction approached, rumors of poor performance started circulating. Sega intended to use Real3D technology in Saturn 2 but price seemed too high for ago home system.

Remember the Intel !? – TR Forums

With price taken into account, only the PCI Starfighters were not so competetive, all the bad press AGP cards got does not seem so justified, at least on my systems. The Intel supports, and with Starfighter drivers can even enforce, anti-aliasing AA. Flying Fox Gerbil God.


It was a flop because no gamer would buy one due to its poor performance and wasn’t on the market for long. The Intel is optimized for a 2d resolution of x and a 3d at x Intel also sold the i to 3rd party companies, and some PCI versions of the accelerator also were made. Views Read Edit View history.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Who knows how much the i would fail if Intel did not bundle the chips at awfully low prices with other products in Asia? Desktop – i5 K 4.

And of course Intel had its massive OEM channels. At that time though, ATI and Nvidia were starting to crank out video cards like crazy.

Despite all the image quality praise I have some doubts about subpixel accuracy of i Having reduced texture transfers to a fraction of usual amount the i achieves amazing i7440 considering its reliance on system memory. Article about Intel’s graphics solutions should probably begin with i fromthough i from is nowadays often considered more of a “3D accelerator”.

In Direct3d AGP cards are trading blows, on average performance is equal. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Another victim was new generation project i, a high performance AGP 4x chip scheduled for fall The problem was most games were designed around 3dfx Glide or ran best on Voodoo in general back then. I tested the green one, but there is no real difference. It would be impossible to get decent performance with plain AGP DMA transfers, where whole textures are being uploaded ag local memory.

It was only the summer of and prices of i AGP cards were already falling like a rock. Don’t get your hopes up, framerate effectively drops to one third, but it is a step in right direction compared to the Riva Good for the card alone, but AGP memory is of course allocated in main memory.

The Intel can select only small chunk of texture if the rest of the raster map is not needed for rendering.
