When Intel announced they were entering gd-546d 3D market with the i Cirrus Logic exited the market, which at the time for Cirrus Logic was worth million dollars annually.

Reflection mapping in Monster Truck Racing 2 brakes car texturing. If Laguna3D could draw full featured 3d pixel in single cycle as Cirrus claimed, this should not be a contest, but as you can see it rarely happens.

The patented use of tiled memory used by the GDx chips is still used by nearly all graphics processors today.

Sexually explicit or offensive language. Anyway, focus then moved onto storage, audio chips and data acquisition technology used for communication and industrial applications. A new product line should have helped fill those capacities- 3d accelerators. No other 3d graphics provider got such an endorsement from mighty Wintel.


Default setting is quite high, but still some large flat surfaces have problems, for example you may see shaking ground in Mechwarrior 2.

In the early s, Cirrus Logic became a supplier of PC graphics chips, audio converters and chips for magnetic cirgus products. Our processors would appreciate more something like triangle setup, but at least there is something unique inside Laguna3D. Advertisements or commercial links.

Then Cirrus Logic embraced graphics and communications products. All the development process required was a systems engineer who could program and arrange the chips to handle whatever function the product should perform.

Taking price into account it performs quite well in old games even with small amount of local memory. Up to 8 MB of local memory are supported and Techworks planned to release 6 and 8 MB cards, but I don’t think that ever happened. Even if execution units are designed to process multiple operations in single pass, their inputs cannot be fed fast enough.
