Unless expressly mentioned in the s3 virge pci, there will be no other parts included with the item. That is, main-CPU software-based rendering could render realtime 3D graphics—as demonstrated by games like Descentwhich used only the main CPU and standard VGA hardware to render full-screen 3D video with 6-degrees-of-freedom motion in real time—but the resolution, polygon count, and quality of shading, smoothing, etc. Posted February 20, edited.

Installed Size. For some it's fast, for some it's slow. Updates done to the 3D engine are significant. Perspective correction is separated and does not eat clocks of the whole pipeline, which now needs in best case only two clocks to process bilineary filtered textured pixel.

Represented by a Compaq card, memory expansion module stripped off.

Again the same question as with VX arise- is the GX chip able to put the bandwidth into good use?The S3 Virtual Reality Graphics Engine (ViRGE) graphics chipset was one of the first 2D/3D functions (such as the VGA-controller, 2D/BITBLT engine, RAMDACPCI and memory interface), and the need to serve traditional 2D applications.
