3DLABS INTRODUCES NEW HIGH-END WILDCAT4 AGP 8X GRAPHICS.
"Design professionals working in graphics-intensive environments can step-up to the Wildcat4 and get the same great features and quality of the Wildcat III, but with impressive increases in performance and AGP 8x interface support," said Jerry Peterson, executive vice president and general manager of 3Dlabs workstation division. "The increased bandwidth of the AGP 8x bus coupled with Wildcat4 will significantly enhance 3D visualization on the desktop. It doesn't get any better or faster than this."
Wildcat4 technology takes complete advantage of the new AGP 8x interface standard, transferring 2GB of graphics information per second between the graphics card and system. The Wildcat4 architecture also combines geometry and raster engines into a single, high-performance, high-bandwidth, integrated processor for today's best professional graphics performance on the desktop.
The Wildcat4 graphics products are available in leading systems running Microsoft(R) Windows(R) 2000 and Windows(TM) XP. Both cards feature custom drivers for AutoCAD and 3ds max(TM). 3Dlabs also plans to introduce its own 3D-optimized Linux(R) drivers for the Wildcat4 family.
The Wildcat4 Family
Wildcat4 continues 3Dlabs' tradition of offering high-end features and quality for unmatched designer productivity. There are two Wildcat4 models: the ultra high-end Wildcat4 7210 with a total of 384MB of on-board memory -- the first AGP8x add-in board to offer this capacity -- and the high-end Wildcat4 7110 with an impressive 256 MB total on-board memory.
