Although AGP did indeed improve performance of moving geometry, this was wiped away by the growing use of textures, which were much larger.

In spite of this, pundits continued to agree that its release would have enormous effects on the market. 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.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. As the introduction approached, rumors of poor performance started circulating. They used an AGP-to-PCI bridge chip and had more on-board memory for storing textures locally on the card, and were actually faster than their AGP counterparts in some performance i7440.

In the lead-up to the i’s introduction, the press widely commented that it would drive all of the smaller vendors from the market.

In AprilIntel announced two successors to the i Although AGP did indeed improve performance of moving geometry, this was wiped away by the growing use of textures, which were much larger.

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. In Augustafter less than 18 months on the market, Intel withdrew the i from the market.

Intel no longer hosts i drivers, and advises owners of ibased cards to use the drivers. The AGP Texture concept soon proved to be a tremendous error in design, because the card had to constantly access the textures over a channel that was upwards of eight times slower than RAM placed on the graphics card itself.

By the end of the year it went largely unmentioned in benchmarks against newer 3D products, already forgotten.

The Intelor i codenamed Auburnis a nm graphics processing unit using an AGP interface released by Intel in Peter Glaskowsky noted that “Very few of the manufacturers have the access to the [manufacturing plants] that Intel does, S3 videk be the big loser here–it doesn’t sell to the performance market. A unique characteristic, which set the AGP version of the card apart from other similar devices on the market, was the use of on-board memory exclusively for the display frame viveowith all textures being kept in the computer system’s main RAM.

At the time, most viideo used the CPU for triangle setup and geometry calculations, then handed the data off to the card to apply texture mapping and bilinear filtering. However, the i was cancelled before release, and the i was released in limited quantities before it too was withdrawn, having shown only a marginal performance increase over its predecessor.

Intel has the resources to beat S3 on those terms and they have the performance”. Intel purchased the company’s intellectual propertypart of a series on ongoing lawsuits, but laid off the remaining skeleton staff.

Intel also sold the i to 3rd party videl, and some PCI versions of the accelerator also were made. The i has a long and storied history that starts at GE Aerospace as part of their flight simulation systems, notable for their construction of the Project Apollo “Visual Docking Simulator” that was used to train Apollo Astronauts to dock the Command Module and Lunar Module.
