SiS AGP steadily grew around core logic and multimedia products. It was not until that SiS entered the discrete graphics market with 2d chips 62xx. In they introduced their own 3d accelerator, gaining a significant foothold with one million chips sold, and delivered world first motherboard chipset with integrated graphics core. 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.

And their all in one graphics engine called "" was part of this success even if many gamers frown upon it or even all graphics cores of SiS. SiS AGP the middle of 3d gaming craze hits full speed and market is supplied with products of witty names, sometimes not far from mass murder. Among those SiS drops it's 3d junior called Did they think people will remember random numbers? Couldn't they come up with something better? I guess it would not fit well. 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.

The AGP chip was a hit nonetheless, easily outselling earlier revisions. On SiS AGP 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. It is a bad sign when company concentrates on promoting interface rather than compute power of the chip itself.

Then there is a VLIW floating point primitive setup engine capable of triangle setup within 60 clocks. From setup unit 32 bit data with 13 bit tags are sent at once to the rasterizer. Gouraud shading with dithering and specular highlights is calculated without any penalty. Texturing engine SiS AGP flexible, handling rectangular shapes up to x and color formats from smallest palettes over mixed modes to 32 bit RGBA. Bilinear filter however is not smooth interpolation, SiS AGP a gradual.

This optimization is similar to ATi for example, the precision of is on par with Rage Pro. For untrained SiS AGP no really bad SiS AGP showed up in games. Exceptionally, some specific textures are showing excessive color banding, probably because driver chose wrong format, or additional dithering. These should not be related to such filtering optimization. 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. SiS later doubled those stages, perhaps in C3 already.

I tried C5 and these bugs are gone. Vertex fog is properly blended with all surfaces.

Z-buffer is implemented with rejection of hidden pixels in front to back sorting. Also alpha SiS AGP scissored planes are tested at render output. At least packs all the basic features needed for proper rendering of 90's 3d games. SiS tried to provide some extras in control panels, nothing 3d related though. Quite a family and considering vendors had liberty to use any SiS AGP they liked, there is a large variety of cards.

But finding earlier chips was quite though, it seems most cards were by far equipped with the AGP version, no matter which bus they utilized. The cards Since first revision featured strong idct mpegII decoder, as Miro is promoting here. First review was SiS AGP with AGP even if its release date is on the edge of my scope. Back then all three cards in my possession were this version anyway. All of them are equipped with 8 MB of different memory type, memory bus width is casual 64 bit.


With a chip rather slow can there be much of a difference? Having AGP boards with all three types of memory, quick answer is possible. Yes, memory bandwidth is important. EDO cards are known to be minimally overclockable and SiS AGP confirms this after few extra MHz.

I thought maybe with some crystal mod I could become lucky owner of the fastest "evah", but the DAC is tied to the same source. I will update this article later if it will be worth it. Since the beta driver release code named Java with OpenGL ICD was buried in the depths of the internet allow me to save the suffering of other geeks by providing the library here. But guess what, SiS AGP can play some GlQuake on without it, because it is compatible with the S3 Quake wrapper for Virge. There is some hud corruption, but I am still surprised it works.


What more at x the Virge wrapper is a bit SiS AGP than ICD. Real gift is Mpact 2 wrapper, properly working and fastest, it became the choice for first and second Quake engines instead of the ICD. Quake 3 is where ICD belongs and to my surprise, the game is rendered correctly with advanced effects. Outside of Id world I tried Star Siege, again succesfully.
