The 3D Blaster VLB nowadays is a very rare card 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 usually if it shows up on auction websites, the price will be very high. However, the memory upgrade module is more difficult to find than the 3D Blaster VLB itself, and would also be very steeply-priced.

Display drivers are available for Windows 3DLabs PerMedia3 16. Permedia NT differs from the original in that it features a separate geometry co-processor chip known as Delta for performing geometry setup calculations.

However, the Delta geometry co-processor is optimized for 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 3D and CAD applications rather than for games, resulting in anemic overall gaming performance. On the upside, the main advantage at the time was that 3DLabs was the only company producing consumer-level graphics chips that had full OpenGL ICD driver support other manufacturers didn't support OpenGL at all or released a miniport driver instead. The discrete Delta geometry co-processor chip originally featured in the Permedia NT is now 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 into the Permedia 2's core logic, resulting in a single-chip solution.


Permedia 2 supports AGP texturing as well as 3D rendering in bit color depth. However, it does not support colored vertex blending, which 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 in games using only monochromatic lighting - notable examples are in Quake 2 and Quake III: Please add the memory size of the board and its commercial name and vendor. Thanks for your help! Status This driver is still experimental, but should be fairly stable by now.

Any report on other boards or even the same is welcome. It shouldn't cause problem with newer XFree86 release. Hardware cursor is not and will likely not be supported.


Support VESA power-saving feature. That means the screen goes to sleep after a while, nothing more: This is normal.

For kernel 2. This might also be useful for non-vanilla kernel based on 2.

Depth, BitsPerPixel and fbset There's a little bit of confusion on the proper use of some terms in this page and in the fbset software. Depth should be the actual number of bits used for the color of the pixel above, significants bits BitsPerPixel should be the actual number of bits used in the memory of the framebuffer per pixel, regardless of depth. Unfortunately, fbset -depth X should really be fbset -bpp X as it means set the framebuffer to that number of bits per pixels in memory, or more. So to get Depth 15 in 16 BitsPerPixels, i. Depth 12 in 16 bpp would be fbset -depth 16 -rgba 4,4,4,4 At the moment, if you use fbset -depth 15, pm3fb will also use RGB and 16bpp 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 I'm not sure it's the right behavior. Options are separated by a comma "," exemple: Apparently kernel 2.

You can use current to keep an already-set mode you still need to use option flatpanel: SGISW will set the x mode this flat panel use you still need to use option flatpanel: The board will be allowed internally, but will not be either initialized or used. 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 was manufactured at IBM's 0.

3DLabs PerMedia3 16 Delta boosted geometry performance of Permedia per clock not sustainably much better than that of Glint by factor of 1. And just like any hardware triangle setup it also reduces bus traffic. Experience First disappointment are errors caused by insufficient memory, so unexpected with 4MB of universal memory. Default driver settings are not at all helpful for gaming. To get reasonable compatibility disable rectangular allocator and enable texture compression for OpenGL.

It isn't anything worthy of the compression name, it just effectively reduces textures into quarters. But without it, the Permedia will just drop almost all textures in GlQuake. Pallete extension does not look very compatible here. It is possible to see all textures at least in default demo, though it is still not enough to enjoy regular game without some white polygons. Bigass demo is a different beast, some player skins were dropped and in the heat of explosions Permedia was often giving up on bilinear filtering. Disabling texture modulation can help some d3d games to run. 3DLABS was a fabless semiconductor company that originally developed the GLINT and bit memory interface, 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 PCIe; 3Dlabs Wildcat Realizm - 1 (for use with the SGI SW flat panel); 3Dlabs Permedia3 Create!‎History · ‎Media processors · ‎Legacy Graphics cards.
