It is a bad sign when company concentrates on promoting interface rather than compute power of the chip itself. This page was last edited on 27 August , at Third the texturing likes to drop samples at further mip maps, but the amount of shimmering is within expectations of the time. 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 was typically bundled with those cards it probably was good and cheap universal graphics card for people not demanding high gaming performance. This optimization is similar to ATi for example, the precision of is on par with Rage Pro. Anyway, once SiS polished the silicon became solid value 3d chip.

SIS 6326 2X AGP 8MB
SiS shipped over seven million units of the SiS in Four megabytes of video memory are sometimes not enough, C1 did not use texturing from system memory and dropped some textures in Incoming. Lowering resolutions further does not help so much like with Virge for example, so the bottleneck wgp likely somewhere in the early stages. In SiS pumped out Xabre graphics cores and long overdue holy grail of the company: To see ap of AGP visit this gallery.
Texturing engine is flexible, handling rectangular shapes up to x and color formats from smallest palettes over mixed modes to 32 bit RGBA.
Therefore, it is safe to say even cheapest cards with 50 MHz memory will outrun fastest Virge.

Back then all three cards in my possession were this version anyway. On the other hand Expendable was broken with older drivers. This page was last edited on 27 Augustat Newly formed graphics-only XGI company released second generation Xabre architecture under Volari name with more PR twists and hypes which fire backed pretty heavily and confirmed the underdog position of XGI.
Here is the gallery to see more. The image quality of AGP is fine but few things are still lowering overall impression. The very first C1 revision features only one texture coordinate and blending stage and suffers from broken texture perspective correction and fails one advanced blending operation.
I will update this article later if it will be worth it. There is little support for Linux aside from the drivers developed independently by Thomas Winischhofer.

The cards Since first revision featured strong idct mpegII decoder, as Miro is promoting here. Webarchive template wayback links.
It is very annoying and absolutely inexcusable bug seen in whole family. All of them are equipped with 8 MB of different memory type, memory bus width is casual 64 bit.
Performance 3d performance of is rather low, unlike what theoretical fillrate suggests it does not have enough power for gaming at x SiS decided to go large and invested a fortune into own manufacturing plants and also acquired x86 CPU technology by apg of Rise. Exceptionally, some specific textures are showing excessive color banding, probably because driver chose wrong format, or additional dithering. SiS was abandoning other challenging products through the years, sold it’s fabs and today does not offer any key PC core logic anymore, despite buying back rest of XGI in However cases of unstable textures remained, so it still cannot be considered as correct and accurate 3626 pixel division.

SiS qgp Socket 7, and SiS for socket In Expendable and Resident Evil C1 rendered utter garbage. Since the model aimed for low cost over high performance, its capabilities were low compared to contemporary products. I thought maybe with some crystal mod I could become lucky owner of the fastest “evah”, but the DAC is tied to the same source.
Thanks to that I saw properly lighted Unreal which does not happen with last Windows 98 driver.
