There is some hud corruption, but I am still surprised it works. Back then all three cards in my possession were this version anyway. In Expendable and Resident Evil C1 rendered utter garbage. At least packs all the basic features needed for proper rendering of 90’s 3d games. 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 library here. Yes, memory bandwidth is important. With a chip rather slow can there be much of a difference?

The cards Since first revision featured strong idct mpegII decoder, as Miro is promoting here.

For discrete graphics SiS prepared bit architecture numberedbut with si speed and higher cost was barely registered in the retail market. SiS later sus those stages, perhaps in C3 si. DOS performance is lower than others and that does not come from any benchmark, one can tell the difference just by text scrolling. 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.
But discrete chips sold quite impressive 7 million during alone, pushing SiS into top five. There is some hud corruption, but I am still surprised it works. 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 low cost is prioritized over 3D performance.

Thus, in SiS remained among technological leaders of integrated graphics chipsets, but in time when it could not find any manufacturing capacity to actually deliver them in numbers market demanded. Yes, memory bandwidth is important.
EDO cards are known to be minimally overclockable and mine confirms this after few extra MHz. Since C5 blending is correct and most of perspective problems are fixed. This page was last edited on 27 Augustat Still the compatibility is impressive. SiS for Socket 7, and SiS for socket I tried both to be sure whether it influences transfers with system memory, but it made no difference. To see screenshots of AGP visit this gallery. To be crowned as king of budget few things were missing: Most of the cards have a jumper to enable own interrupt handling.
SiS tried to provide some extras in control panels, nothing 3d related though. In they introduced their own 3d accelerator, gaining a significant foothold with one million chips sold, and delivered world first motherboard chipset with integrated graphics core. I guess it would not fit well. It was not until that SiS entered the discrete graphics market with 2d chips 62xx.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Among those SiS drops it’s 3d junior called It is easy to understand why SiS introduced Xabre family with previously non-existing buzz, older cores got very little space in media.

Anyway, once SiS polished the silicon became solid value 3d chip. At least packs all the basic features needed for proper rendering of 90’s 3d games. Well, there are few hopes: All of them are equipped with 8 MB of different memory type, memory bus width is casual 64 bit.
SiS decided to go large and invested a fortune into own manufacturing plants and also acquired x86 CPU technology by purchase of Rise.

Thanks to that I saw properly lighted Unreal which does not happen with last Windows 98 driver. In SiS pumped out Xabre graphics cores and long overdue holy grail of the company: Image quality issues are the same as with C1, but was memory management improved by AGP?
Later die shrink and reingeneered with 64 bit memory bus, cheaper “” sold a lot more, but still not enough to regain former market share of With it’s full triangle setup, texture cache and optionally beefy MPEG decoder, outperformed more famous budget chips like those from ATi and S3. If only the OpenGL library did not end up with beta release
