These tweaks can be saved as a new preset. It is packed with MB of RAM split between frame buffer and texturing, can drive two monitors simultaneously without a hitch and is fast.


As in four times faster than the previous Wildcat ! It obliterated the synthetic and real-world benchmark tests and made working in Maya, 3ds max, Softimage XSI and Lightwave a pleasure. The uses a ParaScale architecture to run dual-pipelines of geometry and raster operations on multiple processors. The large buffers keep your data on the card longer, minimizing slow 3D Labs Wildcat II 5000 over the AGP bus to retrieve scene data. These processor and memory architecture designs are responsible for the card's great speed. On the left is an image created without full-scene anti-aliasing.

The dual-monitor capability of the Wildcat II is wonderful. I haven't used dual-monitors since my PowerMac days, and I somehow forgot how sweet it is.

The ability to leave material palettes, schematic views, function curve editors and the like open on a second monitor is incredibly useful and timesaving. Now the bad news: Why can't you buy one on its own? Perhaps 3Dlabs figures that customers would blow up their cards 3D Labs Wildcat II 5000 motherboards due to the general confusion surrounding the AGP Pro standard.

The hardware requirements are high enough that they like to leave it up to the workstation manufacturers to build a stable configuration. Available through authorized resellers, this is really the 's little brother. It feels the same as the in many regards, just not as powerful or fast. It sports 3D Labs Wildcat II 5000 the RAM, and by the looks of the card itself, is built on nearly the same circuit board as thewith two large processors missing.

I'm no engineer, but I'm guessing that the missing parts account for the single-pipeline nature of the card. The 's dual-pipeline makes a big difference; the can drive only a single monitor analogue or digital, CRT or flat panelwith about half the raw polygon-crunching power of its older sibling. The image on the top shows the results of running the benchmark on the Wildcat II and the one on the bottom shows the same benchmark and data being run on a 3D Labs Wildcat II 5000 end card.


The circled areas are parts that were missed in rendering the image. Not a big deal in a game, but a pretty big deal if you are trying to represent a car or other CAD image on screen. Uwe also did a review of OpenGL-based cards last month that you might want to take a look at in thinking about the features you need in one of these monsters.

The answer is simple: High end 3D offerings still excel at their target market. You attempt to run quake3 or Max Payne on a 3Dlabs oxygen, it will look pretty abysmal.

These cards are built for accuracy, reliability and when faced with manufacturing a real-life object from a computer model that apparently has holes in it from bad video board drivers, speed becomes a secondary issue. Whats' In the box, please?

Installation Painless. The board works fine under standard and 1.

Drivers Driver installation simply involves running the self-extracting driver package. Its' worth noting that the unified updates for the whole VP range are only a 3mb download, so its not too stressful for a modem!
