3DLabs PerMedia3 32 Driver

Permedia 2 supports AGP texturing as well as 3D rendering in bit color depth. However, it does not support colored vertex blending, which results in games using only monochromatic lighting - notable examples are in Quake 3DLabs PerMedia3 32 and Quake III: Arena only supports vertex lighting on the 3DLabs PerMedia3 32 2. The Permedia 2 is also 3DLabs' last graphics chip with Windows 95 support. Both were released in mid and again were directed at the professional 3D and CAD application market.

The Permedia 3, however, had more emphasis on being directed at gaming. Both are also Direct3D 6-compliant.

The Permedia 3 and GLINT R3 also introduced support for hardware dot product bump mapping, but this feature would not be extensively used in games until a year or so after its release. Other consumer-level graphics 3DLabs PerMedia3 32 at the time only supported emboss bump mapping.

Three retail cards based on this chip were released: The Oxygen GVX1 featured a separate geometry co-processor known as Gamma G1 chip for performing transformation, clipping and lighting calculations, extending what the Delta co-processor performed in the Permedia and Permedia 2 series. Likewise with Delta, the Gamma G1 geometry co-processor is not optimized for games.

Their performance in professional 3D and CAD applications, however, is much better. Texture units can tile blits, bilinear filter can stretch them, chroma key testing can be used for transparent blits. 3DLabs PerMedia3 32, Windows, video, authoring, 3d gaming- Permedia should have mastered it all. Architecture The pipeline is controlled by 32 bit registry file preceded by 64 entry deep 41 bits wide FIFO, to accommodate with 3DLabs PerMedia3 32 also 9 bit tag.

All can be covered under DMA engine and there is also option of direct memory access around the pipeline. Rasterizer 3DLabs PerMedia3 32 plenty fast, close to promised polygon rates even with smooth Gouraud shading and specular lighting.

3DLabs PerMedia3 32 Scissoring and stenciling units remained. Color precision is rather disappointing, because precision was at some places reduced to 5 bits per channel. The main feature set addition was "full speed" bilinear filter, however, in the tests performance drop is significant.

3DLabs PerMedia3 32 more the filter does not really seem to be interpolating, it looks rather like offsetting texels to partially overlap each other and crossfade of colors. Considering the serious past 3dlabs comes from, I would guess this is some desperate hack, rather than a design choice.

Poor presentation of texturing unit is completed by lack of mip mapping. Now let me try to demonstrate 3DLabs PerMedia3 32 inaccuracies errors, along with joke of bilinear filter.

I will use 3DLabs PerMedia3 32 from Quake, but mind you this was observed in any application. Texels warps by camera angel and form clear abnormalities like the vertical line in the center.

Permedia supports RGBA textures, but their use is extremely limited due to poor memory 3DLabs PerMedia3 32. Next pipeline stage does not impress either. There is only one texture slot and multiplicative blending is not supported.


Vertex fog is blended with transparent textures properly, frame buffer dithering is sensitive enough. Depth buffer precision was not always sufficient, causing 3DLabs PerMedia3 32 of z-fighting here and there.
