Is the 3DLabs Oxygen VX1 any good?

Views Read Edit View history. However, it does not support colored vertex blending, which results in games using only monochromatic lighting – notable examples are in Quake 2 and Quake Fx1 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

3dlans from the original on December 16, Permedia NT differs from the original in that it features a separate geometry co-processor chip known as Delta for performing geometry setup calculations. Archived from the original on April 22, On the upside, the main advantage at the time was that 3DLabs was the only company producing consumer-level graphics chips that had full OpenGL ICD driver support other manufacturers didn’t support OpenGL at all or released a miniport driver instead.

Later card revisions added AGP 4x support – if purchased in a retail box, there usually will be an “AGP 4x” sticker present on the box to indicate such support. If you use overlay planes 3D not DirectDraw 2D “a lot” than it will also stomp the GeForce family including vs1 Quadro since no nVidia chips have hardware support for overlay planes including the Quadro. No wonder SGI is losing money.

This page was last modified on 11 Mayat The Oxygen GVX1 featured a separate geometry co-processor known as Gamma G1 chip for performing transformation, clipping and lighting calculations, extending what the Delta co-processor performed in the Permedia and Permedia 2 series.

Most gamers at the time opted to upgrade to a PCI Pentium system instead. I quickly swapped out the ole Number Nine for the new card, rebooted, and nothing. Most problems with the Oxygen card appear to be tied to specific motherboards.

Just in case y’all are curious, the problem appears to be with motherboards that do not meet the PCI 2. Video quality is awesome – none of those quirks that the number nine card had. I received mine several weeks ago.

Hamidi Intel Corporation Inc. The Number Nine card is back in and working fine.

I tried several PCI slots as I thought it may not be 3d,abs properly, but to no avail. Benhameen Ars Tribunus Angusticlavius Registered: However, with these additional rendering features enabled, performance in supported games is less than desirable unless one has a VLB Pentium system and reviewers knocked the card.

However, the Delta geometry co-processor is optimized for professional 3D and CAD applications rather than for games, resulting in anemic overall gaming performance.
