3D LABS INTENSE 3D VIDEO DRIVER
Pervasive Media Creative 3D Blaster VLB failed to impress, but even before its release 3Dlabs was already making waves about much improved consumer chip for It was complete solution and relatively cheap Permedia was the first incarnation of "Pervasive 3D" strategy of good for everything affordable graphics architecture. Among the 3d solutions of were fast only add-on cards like Voodoo Graphics, all universal architectures had bigger or smaller performance problems. Texture units can tile blits, bilinear filter can stretch them, chroma key testing can 3D Labs Intense 3D Video used for transparent blits. DOS, 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 data also 9 bit tag. All can be covered under DMA engine and there is also option of direct memory access around the pipeline.
Rasterizer is plenty fast, close to promised polygon rates even with smooth Gouraud shading and specular lighting. 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. What 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 its inaccuracies errors, along with joke of bilinear filter.
I will use lightmap 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 management. 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 bit of z-fighting here and there. OpenGL revealed only 15 bits are used at low resolutions.
Local memory was unified to maximize capacity utilization and all the traffic now goes through casual 64 bit bus, yet 32 bit framebuffer does not significantly slow down rendering. Permedia was an early adopter of SGRAM, and enjoyed the bandwidth, block fills and per-window double buffering. Cards No better camera 3D Labs Intense 3D Video around: Although Creative licensed the core and announced own cards with CGL support, it seems they did not went into production and only 3D Labs Intense 3D Video board is known thanks Gona. Such a change of mind in last moment could have been shower too cold for gaming ambitions of 3Dlabs, even if they bought CGL license to allow for 3D Blaster compatibility.

Permedia can work with memory capacity from 2 to 8 megabytes. Above is earlier card, fabricated in IBM.
Both cards came with 4 MB of memory, which is for reasons explained later not that much for 3d gaming. Actually applying that clock affects performance, so I think there is no detection, just an assumption of original SKU.

Delta also increased floating point and sub pixel precision. It was manufactured at IBM's 0. 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. 3DLABS was a fabless semiconductor company that originally developed the GLINT and 3DLABS acquired Dynamic Pictures in July, and the Intense3D division of 3D Labs Intense 3D Video intensive media processing tasks such as; 2D graphics, 3D graphics, video decode/encode, image processing and floating point (bit IEEE).History · Media processors · Legacy Graphics cards.

It had also severe limitations, but PowerVR's support reached and lasted much further.
