  flat shading, Gouraud shading and texture mapping.  Also has 16 bit
  Z-buffer, supports displays up to 2048x2048 and 1600x1200 @ 90 Hz.



High-end accelerators, based on 8514 design.

        ATI-Mach8       Old, 8514-compatible
        ATI-Mach32      32-bit chip, supports 64-bit interface to
                        video memory with 2Mb. Supports both DRAM and VRAM.
        ATI-Mach64      64-bit chip. VLB speced at 33 MHz.
        ATI-Mach64CT    Integrated RAMDAC.
        ATI-264VT       64-bit Mach64 based accelerator with colour space
                        conversion, video scaling, etc. for fast video
                        playback.  Supports EDO DRAM.
        ATI-3D RAGE     Mach64 based 2D accelerator with integrated 3D
                        acceleration supporting texture mapping, video
                        textures, Gouraud shading, alpha blending and fog
                        effects.  Also supports video scaling in hardware.

        There are also new Mach64 chips supporting SGRAM.

        The Mach32 had fairly good previous generation performance.
        Mach64 was very efficient (competing with the VRAM S3-964, and
        DRAMS3-864 respectively). The 264VT provides excellent video
        playback. ATI has been quick to support the new SGRAM.

        DOS performance is mediocre, even on recent chips. Great
        benefit from linear addressing mode (VBE 2.0).


 Avance Logic, Inc. and Acer Labs, Inc.

They both have the 'ALI' acronym. Acer Labs also makes good
quality motherboard chipsets.

 Cirrus Logic, Inc.

Low-to-mid-end DRAM-based cards (accelerated), some laptop chipsets.
Known for integrating graphic card components into one chip (built-in
RAMDAC and clock generators) at an early point.

CL-GD542x series

        ISA and VL-bus chipset with a 32-bit DRAM interface, and a
        16-bit host bus interface. These were first generation VLB
        cards. All chips in this series have at least a limited form of
        acceleration: fill, scroll, hardware cursor.

        CL-GD5420       Old, no truecolor DAC. ISA.
        CL-GD5421       Old, highcolor DAC. ISA.
        CL-GD5422       ISA. Has truecolor DAC.
        CL-GD5424       VLB support.
        CL-GD5425       TV output.

        The following chips have a 'BitBLT engine', which implies
        better acceleration (opaque move, invert, text).

        CL-GD5426       BitBLT chip. ISA, VLB. Max 2Mb.
        CL-GD5428       Slightly enhanced version of the 5426.
        CL-GD5429       Much faster version, appeared 1st Q 1995.
                        Memory-mapped I/O and higher memory clock.

        Performance was fair for its day, drops off at high
        resolutions/refresh, and gains with CPU. DOS performance was
        mediocre. Upgrade to 2Mb buys very little (interlaced modes

 CL-GD543x/4x series ('Alpine')

        64-bit internal acceleration. 64-bit DRAM interface on
        5434/6 but only with 2Mb memory. More or less compatible
        with 5426/8.

        CL-GD54(M)30    'Budget' version. Limited to 32-bit DRAM interface,
                        even with 2Mb. A bit faster than the 5428.
        CL-GD5434       Has 64-bit interface to DRAM with 2Mb memory,
                        32bpp truecolor support.
        CL-GD5434-E     Supports higher memory clock (60 MHz).
        CL-GD5436       Highly optimized 5434, high memory clock (EDO DRAM
                        support), packed-24 acceleration.
        CL-GD5440       5430 with video support (compressed YUV, zoom,
                        motion video, "software MPEG").
        CL-GD54M40      5440 with integrated filters.
        CL-GD5446       Essentially 5436 with video, PowerPC and V-Port

        The 543x had OK performance, pretty decent with 64-bit DRAM
        access (2MB), although DOS performance was poor in the 5430/40.
        The 5446 is an efficient chip with excellent DOS performance
        and motion video.

        The 5434 was often equipped with only 1Mb, which severely crippled

CL-G546x "Laguna" series

        CL-GD5462       Supports RDRAM (Rambus).  Video acceleration.
        CL-GD5464       3D accelerator. Creative will be using it.

The CL-GD5480 is a chip announced for early 1997 supporting SGRAM
clocked at 100 MHz, with acceleration based on the "Alpine" BitBLT

Cirrus has also produced a number of laptop/notebook chipsets:

        CL-GD6420/40    Chipset that shared some features with the
                        CL-GD5420, but is not compatible.
        CL-GD62x5       More or less compatible with the CL-GD5420.
        CL-GD7543       Acceleration similar to the CL-GD5428, has some
                        video support.
        CL-GD7548       32-bit DRAM interface, acceleration similar
                        to the 5436, with video support
        CL-GD7555       64-bit DRAM interface.

Cirrus Logic started integrated graphic components design now used by most
chipset makers.



        VRAM-based accelerators, some cheap. Has some similarities
        with IBM XGA. Discontinued.

        AGX-016         64-bit DRAM



High end accelerators.  Excellent GUI (Windows 3.1, etc) performance.
Early models (other than Millenium) characterized by abysmal VGA

        64-bit accelerator which supports up to 8 Meg of WRAM (Window
        RAM - dual ported).  Supports resolutions up to 1600x1200 at
        very high speeds.  PCI only.  Incorporates hardware color
        space conversion and video upscaling, 3D gouraud shading,
        texture mapping, double and Z-buffering.  Also has a fast
        32-bit VGA core.
        64-bit accelerator which supports up to 4 Meg of SGRAM.  Fast
        2D acceleration, hardware colour space conversion and video
        scaling for fast video, texture mapping, Gouraud shading,
        transparency, double buffering for fast 3D.



        77C22(E(+))     SVGA, limited acceleration, ISA.
        77C32BLT        Accelerated, supports VLB. Some neat features.


 Oak Technologies Inc.

Low-end SVGA chipsets.

        OTI-057/67      Old SVGA chipsets, 512K max.
        OTI-077         SVGA chipset, 1Mb max. Slow.
        OTI-087         Accelerated, 2Mb max. Not very fast (unoptimal
        OTI-64105/107   64-bit DRAM chipset, rare.
        OTI-64111       64-bit PCI/ISA 2D chipset.  DRAM and EDO supported.
        OTI-64217 'Eon' 64-bit PCI chipset supports EDO & SGRAM.  Claims
                        to speed up 3D applications, but I doubt it has
                        real 3D acceleration.

 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

Don't know much about this company, but the only product listed
on their web pages is the RTG3105i which is billed as an all-in-one
chip integrating the DAC, BIOS and clock synthesizer.  Emphasis is
on low cost and it will support a maximum of 512k. Could be found
a few years ago.


 S3, Inc.

Well-established for high-end PC graphics chipsets. Has moved into
low-to-mid-end market. Generally efficient accelerators. Wide variation
in card designs (RAMDAC, clock generators etc.). Acceleration interface
based on IBM 8514. 8xx chips are DRAM-based, 9xx VRAM-based.

First Generation

        S3-911          Original S3 chip, VRAM-based. Very poor DOS
        S3-924          Bug fix of S3-911, can support 24bpp.

Second Generation

        S3-801          ISA, 32-bit DRAM interface.
        S3-805/805p     Local bus version, mostly 16-bit host interface.
                        2nd half 1994 low-end VLB.
        S3-805i         Supports interleaved memory access with 2Mb DRAM.
        S3-928          Previous generation high-end chipset; 32-bit
                        interface to VRAM for drawing.

        In their day, these were good performers.

64-bit Vision series

        S3-864          64-bit DRAM interface with 2Mb memory. 64-bit
                        acceleration. Variation in RAMDACs.
        S3-964          64-bit VRAM interface. High resolution/color
        Trio32 (732)    Integrated chip with 32-bit DRAM interface.
        Trio64 (764)    Integrated version of S3-864 (built-in RAMDAC and
                        clock generator) not driver-compatible with S3-864.
        Trio64V+        Trio64 with slightly faster 2D and video acceleration.
        Trio64UV+       Faster Trio64V+ with UMA support.
        S3-868          Enhanced 864 with video acceleration features.
        S3-968          Enhanced 964 with video acceleration features.
        S3-ViRGE        Trio64V+ 2D core with 3D acceration including
                        texture mapping, Gouraud shading, etc.  Supports
        S3-ViRGE/VX     Support for VRAM/WRAM.
        S3-ViRGE/GX     SGRAM support.

        The early 64-bit DRAM chips had good performance (with 2MB).
        The engine got progressively faster with new chips.

        The S3-Virge and S3-Trio64UV+ have a revamped graphics engine
        more optimized for Windows. The single-cycle EDO DRAM support
        provides relatively fast acceleration for DRAM card. In a very
        profitable marketing move, one card maker has offered a Virge
        based card with expensive single-cycle clocked EDO DRAM with
        optimized drivers, getting rave reviews, and so created the
        market for its "cheap" EDO DRAM version.

        DOS performance was fair on the S3-805, while S3-928 had good
        DOS performance for its day. Even with later chips, it's
        not optimal in SVGA modes, where UniVBE/SDD or other VESA
        drivers can signficantly improve DOS performance.

        All the 64-bit chips take a big performance hit with only 1Mb.
        There has been variation in memory timing (speed) between
        different card models.

        Trio32/64 and 868 do not support packed-24 pixels (24 bpp), which
        generally implies no 16M color modes on a 1Mb card.

Other products:

        Aurora64V+      Trio64V+ core with dual display capability for
                        use in laptops.  Simultaneous display on LCD and
                        NTSA/PAL TV or CRT monitor.
        Scenic/MX2      MPEG decoder supports MPEG-1 audio/video.


 Sierra Semiconductor

of the business.

        SC15064         Integrated DAC, fast bus interface.


 Trident Microsystems

Long-established low-end chipsets. Early chips known for poor performance,
but very cheap. Recent chips more competitive.

        TVGA8900C       Old ISA, SVGA. Extremely poor performance.
        TVGA9000        512K only, very poor.
        TVGA8900CL      Supports local bus, but very slow.
        TVGA9200Cxr     Local bus, slow.
        TVGA9400CXi     Supports 2Mb, truecolor. Accelerated.

        TGUI9440AGi     Aggressive DRAM timing, accelerated, much quicker.
        TGUI9660/968x   64-bit coprocessor.

        Early chips and VLB accelerators had below par performance.
        The 9440 had OK performance considering its price, and the 9680
        provides cost-effective 64-bit acceleration with video support.


 Tseng Labs, Inc.

ET4000 well-established non-accelerated chipset. W32 series accelerated.
ET4000/W32i and W32p support smart 32-bit interleaved memory interface
with 2Mb DRAM installed, yielding 85% of the video memory bandwidth of a
64-bit interface.

        ET4000AX        Old ISA chipset, VLB OK (16-bit host interface,
                        good response).

W32 series

        ET4000/W32      Accelerated, 32-bit host interface. 32-bit memory
                        interface. Fair performance, comparable to
                        Cirrus 5426.
        ET4000/W32i     Improved acceleration, supports interleaved memory
                        with 2Mb. Very fast blits (efficient memory
        ET4000/W32p     Improved acceleration, better host bus interface
                        support (incl. PCI). Special video support.
                        Several revisions, significant variation.
                        Revisions before C or D may have crippled/broken
                        PCI performance.

        While the W32 had mediocre performance, a W32i/p with 2MB DRAM
        was fairly quick, thanks to efficient BitBLTs. DOS performance
        was good except on an earlier revision ET4000/W32p on PCI bus.
