It was introduced in June [1] and became available to the consumer market in the end of that year. I will update this article later if it will be worth it. Four megabytes of video memory are sometimes not enough, C1 did not use texturing from system memory and dropped some textures in Incoming. Which makes little sense to me, SiS at that time had to know performance of is too low to become gamers choice, but it still could be good multimedia product. The AGP chip was a hit nonetheless, easily outselling earlier revisions.

Local memory management is problematic as well, games like Formula 1 or Motoracer 2 requiring minimum of four megabytes can reject the card- si precious kilobytes allocated for Turbo Queue are to blame. First 3d architecture of SiS exhibits Direct3d compatibility on par with legends of its generation. The image quality of AGP is fine but few things are still lowering overall impression.

Conclusion and decline of SiS in Windows worked to my satisfaction and with rather robust multimedia software, which iss typically bundled with those cards it probably was good and cheap universal graphics card for people not demanding high gaming performance. Did they think people will remember random numbers? In Expendable and Resident Evil C1 rendered six garbage. Back then all three cards in my possession were this version anyway. Performance 3d performance of is rather low, unlike what theoretical fillrate suggests it does not have enough power for gaming at x Here is the gallery to see more.

Also alpha and scissored planes are tested at render output. Then there is a VLIW floating point primitive setup engine capable of triangle setup within 60 clocks. Viper Racing scaled down textures even at x, Populous could not run at resolution above x At least packs all the basic features needed for proper rendering of 90’s 3d games. Yes, memory bandwidth is ssi. I tried C5 and these bugs are gone. Views Read Edit View history. On the other hand Expendable was broken with xgp drivers.

At one moment SiS was the only company in the world besides Intel with a full portfolio of 3C technologies, including CPU, core logic, 3d graphics, connectivity and advanced wafer fabrication. Since the beta driver release code named Java with OpenGL ICD was buried in the depths of the internet allow me to save the suffering of other geeks by providing the sks here.

The AGP chip was a hit nonetheless, easily outselling earlier revisions. And their all in one graphics engine called “” was part of this success even if many gamers frown upon it or even all graphics cores of SiS. Gouraud shading with dithering and specular highlights is calculated without any penalty. I tried both to be sure whether it influences transfers with system memory, but it made no difference.

EDO cards are known to be minimally overclockable and mine confirms this after few extra MHz.

Webarchive template wayback links. Among those SiS drops it’s 3d junior called But discrete chips sold quite sls 7 million during alone, pushing SiS into top five. DOS performance is lower than others and that does not come from any benchmark, one can tell the difference just by text scrolling.


Image quality issues are the same as with C1, but was memory management improved by AGP?

Still the compatibility is impressive. But the uncertainty of solid drivers kept retail cold.

All of them are equipped with 8 MB of different memory type, memory bus width is casual 64 bit. Although its performance was low compared to the GPUs of its age, eventually it became very successful, specially integrated in many motherboards designed to the corporate market, where the ago cost is prioritized over 3D performance.
