New Intense3D Wildcat 4110 VIO Chosen by Intergraph Computer Systems for New Zx10 ViZual Workstation with Wahoo Technology.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 13, 1999--

Wildcat 4110 VIO combined with Zx10's Wahoo Technology(TM) delivers

incomparable graphics performance along with digital video I/O

Intense3D(R) today announced that Intergraph Computer Systems has chosen Intense3D's new Wildcat(R) 4110 VIO for its new Zx10 ViZual Workstation. The Zx10 is the first workstation to feature Intense3D's new Wildcat 4110 VIO, which delivers the same record-breaking graphics performance as the standard Wildcat 4110, but includes a video I/O port to enable output of graphics content as professional-quality digital video. This allows Zx10 workstation users working with high-performance 3D graphics to record and play back their creations in a variety of professional-quality video formats. For instance, a Zx10 workstation user could easily produce a training video based on a high-performance visual simulation; or an MCAD artist could quickly create a video that shows a rotating product model or a building fly-through for a customer presentation. The Zx10 is based on Intergraph's revolutionary new Wahoo Technology(TM) with Streaming Multiport Architecture(TM), which provides optimal utilization of the graphics port and processor frontside bus to boost system throughput and to intensify the performance of the 2D/3D graphics pipeline.

Intergraph Computer Systems' selection of the Wildcat 4110 VIO further extends Intense3D's winning streak as the OEM graphics of choice for the industry's leading workstation vendors including Compaq, Dell, Fujitsu, Fujitsu-Siemens, and IBM.

"Intense3D is dedicated to helping our OEM workstation partners maximize the performance of their workstations and meet the specific needs of their target markets such as video production," said Bill Rick, vice president of sales and marketing at Intense3D. "Intergraph Computer Systems selection of Wildcat 4110 graphics as the graphics subsystem powering their new Zx10 ViZual Workstation with Wahoo Technology further demonstrates Wildcat's industry-leading status."

"We chose Intense3D's Wildcat 4110 VIO because we know that customers of our new Zx10 ViZual Workstation will settle for nothing less than the fastest systems and graphics performance available in the industry," said Jeff Edson, president of the visual computing division at Intergraph Computer Systems. "We also know that professionals at that level of sophistication will appreciate the ability to output their creations as broadcast-quality video from a single workstation."

Unmatched Graphics Performance with Video I/O

Intense3D's Wildcat 4110 VIO offers the same graphics performance that earned the 4110 the top score in five out of five Viewperf benchmarks, along with specialized graphics features such as Intense3D's SuperScene(TM) Antialiasing, the first true scene-based based antialiasing for Windows NT. Other features such as 3D volumetric textures open up entire new markets such as oil/gas and medical imaging. This performance and feature set is possible only with Wildcat 4110 technologies, such as independent, 64MB frame and texture buffers, which enable high-definition display resolutions and unprecedented texture performance for applications such as visual simulation or large-scale terrain databases.

The Intense3D Wildcat 4110 VIO is the latest evolution in the 4110 series, adding video I/O as well as powerful production and editing capabilities such as built-in genlock, and window-mode gamma correction. This industry-first combination of performance and features will ensure that Intense3D Wildcat products remain the graphics of choice for the industry's leading workstation vendors.
