These processors can handle anything from antialiasing pixels to calculating high-order surfaces to performing such esoteric tasks as wavelet compression and photoreal rendering. The multiprocessor architecture is unique among graphics cards and offers many possibilities for expansion and customization.

The card turned in a 3ds max score of For those using 3ds max, the software includes wildcar drivers for 3ds max 4.

Some widlcat ago, 3Dlabs took over Intergraph’s Wildcat business. Viewperf scores were good: The new set seems to have relieved my earlier concerns, and it now comes with 3Dlabs’ Acuity window manager.

Over the course of a week, I tested cp870 software against 3ds max and a number of other applications, including After Effects, Photoshop, and Maya. Publications CGW Volume: I had no problems, but Maya users should certainly double-check before purchasing this card.

In real-world tests using Maya, I found the card to be as fast or faster than the Quadro4 XGL, which costs several hundred dollars more. The VP has four pixel pipelines and can process eight textures per pass. As for 3dlbs, 3Dlabs supports a huge list of 3D software. This is a must for those using multiple displays, as it allows you to control the size of each display and how windows will appear on them.

Overall, this card is a vl870 performer.

Performance is always the big issue with graphics cards, and the Wildcat VP is no slouch. The Wildcat VP was designed as a workstation card first, but may be of interest to gamers as well, as it supports both OpenGL 2. The 3dlabd VP comes in four models. The Wildcat VP is a terrific choice for anyone wanting a workstation qildcat graphics card at a reasonable price.

To complement its higher-end cards and build upon the Wildcat name, the company has introduced a line of mid-range cards called Wildcat VP.

This is undoubtedly where professional 3D graphics is headed, as it allows rendering times to be cut significantly. I tested the card on a dual 1.

The card is also the first to support virtual memory, delivering up to 16gb of addressable space. The Wildcat VP has over of these processors on a single chip, which allows the card to vp70 image information, theoretically making it much smoother and more responsive than a typical graphics card. The card ran great.

This compares favorably to Nvidia’s Quadro4 cards, and places the VP near the front of the pack in terms of performance. These small processors can also be split up and used for different tasks, and they can off-load tasks normally completed by the CPU.

The P10 VPU is fully programmable and supports such advanced wiodcat as automatic parallelization of applications to put processing power where it’s needed most.
