3DLABS WILDCAT III 6110 GRAPHICS CHOSE BY COMPAQ FOR HIGH-PERFORMANCE EVO WORKSTATIONS.

3Dlabs, Inc. Ltd. (Nasdaq:TDDD) has announced that Compaq Computer Corporation has chosen the high-end Wildcat III 6110 graphics accelerator for its latest-generation Evo Workstations W6000 and W8000. The Wildcat III 6110 will be available in configure-to-order (CTO) workstations direct from Compaq later this month.

The Wildcat III 6110 is based on Wildcat III technology, the third generation of 3Dlabs' award-winning Wildcat technology, which is widely acknowledged as the leading graphics technology for performance, features and quality in professional workstation applications. Engineered for optimum performance with today's multi-GHz processors, the Wildcat III 6110 is ideally suited for the dual-processor capable, high-bandwidth Compaq Evo Workstations.

"Our long relationship with Compaq continues with this latest collaboration to optimize 3Dlabs' next-generation Wildcat III graphics accelerators for Compaq's award-winning Evo Workstations," said Jerry Peterson, executive vice president and general manager for the OEM division at 3Dlabs. "The high-end Wildcat 6110 is an ideal solution for both the Evo Workstation W6000, with its compelling price/performance, and the Evo Workstation W8000 with its high-performance, expandable capabilities."

"3Dlabs Wildcat III architecture enables ever-higher levels of performance, memory capacity, professional features, and quality for graphics and data-intensive applications of design, technical and financial workstation users," said Rich Dodds, workstation product marketing manager for Compaq Computer Corporation. "With each new generation of Wildcat technology, 3Dlabs further proves its commitment to delivering the utmost in workstation graphics productivity."

The Compaq Evo Workstation W6000's superior price for performance is an ideal solution for DCC, electronic design automation (EDA), mainstream CAD/CAE, and software development. With one of the smallest footprints in its class, the Evo Workstation W6000 supports up to 2GB of memory, five bays and four slots and may be configured with high-performance options such as SCSI hard disk drives, and CD-RW and DVD drives.

With support for 4GB of memory, seven bays and seven slots, the Compaq Evo Workstation W8000 is a high-performance, expandable solution powerful enough for the most demanding MCAD, CAE, 3-D rendering, animation, video editing, or GIS applications.

Both Evo Workstations use the latest Intel Xeon processor with speeds up to 2.2 GHz and the Intel 860 chipset, are dual processor capable, use high-performance Rambus memory, and will offer the new Wildcat III 6110 graphics accelerator.

Wildcat III technology integrates geometry and raster operations into a single ASIC, enabling the Wildcat III 6110 to deliver outstanding 2D performance, incomparable OpenGL 3D performance, and the industry's most advanced professional feature set.

The Wildcat III 6110 graphics accelerator supports the latest professional standards including OpenGL 1.3 and OpenML 1.0, as well as DirectX 7.0. Other new features include support for multitexturing, bump mapping, and cube mapping. The Wildcat III 6110 is also equipped with twin DVI-I outputs for dual analog, digital, or mixed displays using Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

The Wildcat III 6110 offers 128 MB of texture memory -- twice that of currently available Wildcat II products -- along with 64 MB of frame buffer and 16 MB of DirectBurst Memory, for an impressive total of 208 MB of on-board memory. Users enjoy the full advantage of this huge memory capacity because of the Wildcat III's increased memory bandwidth, which is double that of current Wildcat II products.

3Dlabs is the workstation graphics authority, supplying graphics accelerator solutions for professionals in Computer Aided Design (CAD), Digital Content Creation (DCC), and visual simulation markets. 3Dlabs shipped more 3D workstation-class graphics controllers in 2000 than any other company. Its award-winning Oxygen and Wildcat graphics are available in the industry's top OEM workstations, to the channel through an international distributor/reseller network, and directly to end-users at 3Dlabs' online store.
