Maxtor Fireball Plus 8 40g,rpm,2mb cache Os: This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. But to release one year after Voodoo Graphics chips with quarter performance and plagued by nasty old bugs is just sad. Other than that it provides much better frame rates than the other cards and thus can be considered the only card actually viable to play most of the S3D titles. We cannot end this just yet, despite covering all the Virge cores.

It progressed s3 virge/gx2 to from feature rich but slow s3 virge/gx2 to feature s3 virge/gx2 and very slow card. S3 Virge GX2 is actually one of the few S3 cards that will run S3 accelerated games at an actually decent framerate, so you have a pretty good find here. There I was s3 virge/gx2 disabling lightmaps will make Shogo run more or less properly, but after running few times through smoke screens gun texture is dropped.

Why do I think so? Exhausting list of alpha blending artifacts remains almost the same, but I noticed for example screen flashes in Lands of Lore 2 are fixed.

vireg/gx2 Quake wrapper and S3d patch are included. That incidentally corresponds with the memory frequency increase, but of course there are other factors- S3 virge/gx2 bus, newer driver from spring and maybe some minor tweaks in the core.

The ViRGE family delivered faster Windows acceleration in the same physical footprint as s3 virge/gx2 predecessor.

Memory is ticking at 83 MHz and chip seems to s3 virge/gx2 set to s3 virge/gx2 55 MHz. A short video clip seen here: Anyone have suggested ebay terms to look for besides “gx2”? However, this chip appeared on discrete cards x3 well, perhaps as a cheaper variant to GX2 thanks to lower clocks. I personally cannot be so sarcastic about Virge, s3 virge/gx2 is lots of effort behind every chip.

Looks like support s rectangular textures was added as well. So if u want to enjoy early 3d gaming,imho get the virge and pair it s3 virge/gx2 with a voodoo 1.


Sadly, these AGP Virges produces artifacts in s3d Terminal Velocity despite being supported through latest s3 virge/gx2 toolkit. S3 legacy archive fails to deliver MX driver, but I found quite good s3 virge/gx2 from Compaq, version s3 virge/gx2 Maxtor Fireball Plus 8 40g,rpm,2mb cache Os: S3 virge/gx2 of this I covered them even if they fall out of my time scope.

S3, along with other previously well-established VGA vendors in the PC market, were unable to s3 virge/gx2 to the rapidly evolving PC 3D graphics market, being relegated to sell into market segments where 3D graphics functionality was unimportant. But I have to wonder why couldn’t company s3 virge/gx2 S3 do much much better.

Sometimes people do not post auctions virge/g2 the text they see on a chip. Last edited by m1so on The architecture with all its weaknesses lived s3 virge/gx2 for much longer in Trio 3D.
