At one moment SiS was the only company in the world besides Intel with a full portfolio of 3C technologies, including CPU, core logic, 3d graphics, connectivity and advanced wafer fabrication. The cards Since first revision featured strong idct mpegII decoder, as Miro is promoting here. Common bug is found in Grim Fandango, where wrong z occlusion makes characters hide behind some backgrounds. Having started testing with Windows 95 I used last driver for the system- 1. For discrete graphics SiS prepared bit architecture numbered , but with uninspiring speed and higher cost was barely registered in the retail market. Thanks to that I saw properly lighted Unreal which does not happen with last Windows 98 driver. Second, smoke effects are still skimpy, sometimes hardly visible.

Bilinear filter however is not smooth interpolation, but a gradual. This optimization is similar to ATi for example, the precision of is on par with Rage Pro. SiS later doubled those stages, perhaps in C3 already. It is ssi a bit of white shade thrown onto your screen.

It steadily grew around core logic and multimedia products. There is little support for Linux aside from the drivers developed independently by Thomas Winischhofer.
And their all in one graphics engine called “” was part of this success even if many gamers frown 6362 it or even all graphics cores of SiS. But drivers with low quality texturing by default were cheap and Xabres just did not have enough hooks to turn the tides.

It is a bad sign when company concentrates on promoting interface rather than compute power of the chip itself. Also Incoming showed some excessive color banding. With graphics business going nowhere SiS decided to get rid of anything not essential for integrated graphics. In the middle of 3d gaming craze hits full speed and market is supplied with products of witty names, sometimes not far from mass murder.
The sweet spot is usually at x Outside of Id world I tried Star Siege, again succesfully. SiS tried to provide some extras in control panels, nothing 3d related though. Exceptionally, some specific textures are showing excessive color banding, probably because driver chose wrong format, or additional dithering.
Retrieved from ” https: All of them are equipped with 8 MB of different memory type, memory bus width is casual 64 bit. 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. 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.
Thanks to that I saw properly lighted Unreal which does not happen with last Windows 98 driver.
On the internet was circulating information about the 2d engine being limited to 4MB of memory, but this seems to be true only for legacy VESA modes. For discrete graphics SiS prepared bit architecture numberedbut with uninspiring speed and higher cost was barely registered in the retail market.
Anyway, once SiS polished the silicon became solid value 3d chip. Incoming did not drop textures and Formula 1 could start, but look at the mess: These should not be related to such filtering optimization. Here is the gallery to see more. The very first C1 revision features only one texture coordinate and blending stage and suffers from broken texture perspective correction and fails one advanced blending operation.

Still the compatibility is impressive. Since C5 blending is correct and most of perspective problems are fixed. Z-buffer is implemented with rejection of hidden pixels in front to back sorting.
Therefore, it is safe to say even cheapest cards with 50 MHz memory will outrun fastest Virge.
