In September Lockheed announced a “customer-focused organizational realignment” that shed many of its divisions, and inteel closed Real3D on 1 October following Calcomp in late Auburn was designed specifically to take advantage of and promote the use of AGP interface, lntel the time when many competing 3D accelerators notably, 3dfx Voodoo Graphics still used the PCI connection.
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 tests. Although AGP did indeed improve performance of moving geometry, this was wiped away by the growing use of textures, which were much larger. This page was last edited on 9 Decemberat Intel no longer hosts i drivers, and advises owners of ibased cards to use the drivers.
A vide characteristic, which set the AGP version of the card apart vieo other similar devices on the market, was the use of on-board memory exclusively for the display frame bufferwith all textures being kept in the computer system’s main RAM.
Hamidi Intel Corporation Inc. Retrieved November 11, As the introduction approached, rumors of poor performance started circulating. An Intel AGP card. Another successor that was ultimately cancelled in September was the GPU code-named Capitola to be used in conjunction with the similarly ill-fated Timna processor.

The i and i cores were later used for the integrated graphics in the Intel and chipsets, respectively. Real3D had an early brush with success, providing chipsets and overall design to Segawho used it in a number of arcade game boards, the Model 2 and Model 3. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. IntelIntel Extreme Graphics.
Released with enormous fanfare, the i proved to have disappointing real-world performance and sank from view after only a few months on the market.
The Intelor i codenamed Auburnis a nm graphics processing unit using an AGP interface released by Intel in Retrieved from ” https: Articles needing additional references from July All articles needing additional references. By the end of the year it went largely unmentioned in benchmarks against newer 3D products, already forgotten.
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. Intel also sold the i to 3rd party companies, and some PCI versions of the accelerator also were made. Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. Intel has the resources to beat S3 on those terms and they have the performance”.

In AprilIntel announced two successors to the i Intel purchased the company’s intellectual propertypart of a series on ongoing lawsuits, but laid off the remaining skeleton staff. Peter Glaskowsky noted that “Very few of the manufacturers have the access to the [manufacturing plants] that Intel does, S3 could be the big loser here–it doesn’t sell to the performance market.
In spite of this, pundits continued to agree that its release would have enormous effects on the market. At the time, most accelerators used the CPU for triangle setup and geometry calculations, then handed the data off to the card to apply texture mapping and bilinear filtering.
