The Permedia 3, however, had more emphasis on being directed at gaming. Both are also Direct3D 3DLabs PerMedia3 16. The Permedia 3 and GLINT R3 also introduced support for hardware dot product bump mapping, but this feature would not be extensively used in games until a year or so after its release.

Other consumer-level graphics cards at the time only supported emboss bump mapping. Three retail cards based on this chip were released: The Oxygen GVX1 featured a separate geometry co-processor 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 as Gamma G1 chip for performing transformation, clipping and lighting calculations, extending what the Delta co-processor performed in the Permedia and Permedia 2 series. Likewise with Delta, the Gamma G1 geometry co-processor is not optimized for games.

Their performance in professional 3D and CAD applications, however, is much better. Later card revisions added AGP 4x support - if purchased in a retail box, there usually will be an "AGP 4x" sticker present on the box to indicate such support. There should be 6 lines one 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 the subvendor and subdevice, plus five with the PM3LocalMem values. They are available at boot-time and via the dmesg 8 command-line tool.


Please add the memory size of the board and its commercial name and vendor. Thanks for your help!


Status This driver is still experimental, but should be fairly stable by now. Any report on other boards or even the same is welcome.

It shouldn't cause problem with newer XFree86 release. Hardware cursor is not and will likely not be supported. Support VESA power-saving feature. That means the 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 goes to sleep after a while, nothing more: This is normal. For kernel 2.

This might also be useful for non-vanilla kernel based on 2. Depth, BitsPerPixel and fbset There's a little bit of confusion on the proper use of some 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 in this page and in the fbset software. Depth should be the actual number of bits used for the color of the pixel above, significants bits BitsPerPixel should be the actual number of bits used in the memory of the framebuffer per pixel, regardless of depth.


Unfortunately, fbset -depth X should really be fbset -bpp X as it means set the framebuffer to that number of bits per pixels in memory, or more. So to get Depth 15 in 16 BitsPerPixels, i. Depth 12 in 16 bpp would be fbset -depth 16 -rgba 4,4,4,4 At the moment, if you use fbset -depth 15, pm3fb will also use RGB and 16bpp 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 I'm not sure it's 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 right behavior.

Options are separated by a comma "," exemple: Apparently kernel 2. You can use current to keep an already-set mode you still need to use option flatpanel: Delta boosted geometry performance of Permedia per clock not sustainably much better than that 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 Glint by factor of 1. And just like any hardware triangle setup it also reduces bus traffic.

Experience First disappointment are errors caused by insufficient memory, so unexpected with 4MB of universal memory. Default driver settings are not at all helpful for 3DLabs PerMedia3 16. To get reasonable compatibility disable rectangular allocator and enable texture compression for OpenGL.

It isn't anything worthy of the compression name, it just effectively 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 textures into quarters. But without it, the Permedia will just drop almost all textures in GlQuake.

Pallete extension does not look very compatible here. It is possible to see all textures at least in default demo, though it is still not enough to enjoy regular game without some white polygons. Bigass demo is a different beast, some player skins were dropped and in the 3DLabs PerMedia3 16 of explosions Permedia was often giving up on bilinear filtering.
