Anyway, focus then moved onto storage, audio chips and data acquisition technology used for communication and industrial applications. Forgive my ignorance, but what does that mean in terms of games? It takes care of common rendering functions such as Gouraud shading, perspective correction ahem , Z-buffering, texture map filtering well It is nice when accelerator uses higher internal precision, but dither pattern employed by Laguna is far from accurate and several overlapping layers of transparent textures can deliver awful almost stipple-like pattern. M2, on paper at least, was no joke with half million polygons triangle setup and million pixels per second fillrate. New millennium brought a growing demand for consumer electronics products based on digital audio and video technologies, which was a good wind for Cirrus and it carries them till today.

Same thing happens in Ultimate Race Pro, but along with very serious bug drawing most of polygons in red color. Military necessity does not admit of cruelty nor of torture to procure confessions.

Performance, feature set, drivers, image quality, just latuna all aspects I consider this is a boring gray product, average at best. Cirrus took advantage of PC boom and finally succeeded with own hard drive controller, first to be mounted inside the drive mechanism.

Hackworth joined Patil Systems as president and CEO of new company reincorporated in California and named after cirruses, the highest clouds in the sky, as a way of expressing the elevated complexity of its products. Taking price into account it lagyna quite well in old games even with small amount of local memory.



Thu Oct 02, 9: In April Cirrus has licensed the 3D portion of 3DO’s M2 technology, a bit graphics acceleration built for new console. Will that outperform the Laguna for games such as Quake I!

Clock of Rambus controller is half of data rate, which means own domain ticking at frequency of MHz. Finally, there are many small problems caused by missing multiplicative alpha blending or driver bugs. Pixels are tested by masks and depth comparison performed with help by cache, before lighting and blending is processed. Then there is a latuna of old Creative soundcards lafuna Live! To those of you who made it past the topic title- thank you.

Wed Oct 01, During the latter half of lgoic s poor investments, slow cirrus logic laguna development cirrus logic laguna overcapacity in fabrication ventures rained lwguna on the company. For more screenshots see the Laguna3D gallery. This would make it compatible with 3D Blaster library, however tests showed otherwise thanks Gona.

Cirrus was especially fond of it’s texturing engine, calling it TextureJet architecture. Thu Oct 565, 1: Feb 12, Posts: InHackworth stepped down and Cirrus went through continues changes.

Cirrus Logic Laguna PCI Graphic (end 1/7/ AM)

The Cirrus Logic laguna was one of the infamous decelerators. I hope they pay attention. A new product line should have helped fill those capacities- 3d accelerators. It may also be the reason for no OpenGL games support. Up to 8 MB of local memory are supported and Techworks planned to release 6 and 8 MB cards, but I don’t think that ever happened.


Setting the lowest value gives Laguna a speed increase, but perspectives are getting really fuzzy. A year later came second joint lagna venture with Lucent named Cirent.

Jan 2, Posts: No other 3d graphics provider got such an endorsement from mighty Wintel. In the early s, Cirrus Logic was a supplier of low-cost PC graphics chips. I would say Cirrus did a fine job on thebut something extra was missing to become lagina choice.

Yorkshire it’s grim oop north Registered: The AGP version would then be also a bug fixing effort. Incoming in 32 bit mode, no sign of dithering, but broken lens flares still ruin the show.

It is nice when accelerator uses higher internal precision, but dither pattern employed by Laguna is far from accurate and several overlapping layers of transparent textures can deliver awful almost stipple-like pattern. The patented use of tiled memory used by the GDx chips is still used by nearly all graphics processors today.
