Features and Benefits

Pentium III-optimized PowerThreads OpenGL Drivers
Oxygen VX1 ships with 3Dlabs' PowerThreads drivers with full Pentium III optimizations for single and multiple CPUs to maximize your geometry throughput. The multithreaded architecture of PowerThreads unleashes the power of your current system and allows you to scale geometry performance as more CPU processing power is added.

Virtual Textures
An industry first. Oxygen VX1 implements a full demand-paged virtual texture sub-system in hardware, using on-board graphics memory to cache huge textures stored in main system memory. Oxygen VX1 allows you to manipulate up to 256MB of textures, seamlessly from your favorite applications. Virtual Texturing provides up to 30 times the capacity and efficiency of normal AGP texturing, without the loss of quality associated with texture compression.

Workstation-class 3Dlabs openGL Drivers
3Dlabs' 15 years of 3D graphics and OpenGL experience provides you quality you can trust - backed by the industry's most extensive application certification program.

Super High Resolution Display
Drive true color 3D displays up to 1920x1200 (or 2048x1536 resolutions with full 32 bit Z buffer, with driver support - 4Q99).

Advanced Rendering Pipeline
GLINT R3 delivers the industry's most sophisticated pixel processing capability to ensure full acceleration of advanced rasterization techniques including full OpenGL 1.2, per-pixel lighting bump-mapping, dual bilinear mip-mapping and triple texture blending in a single cycle.

Full acceleration for Windows 95/98 and Direct3D
Oxygen VX1 provides 100% hardware acceleration for Windows 95/98 with OpenGL and Direct3D as well as Windows NT. Oxygen VX1 will also provide complete hardware acceleration for all Direct3D applications under Windows 2000. Now you can use the operating system and 3D API that you need with no compromises.

Advanced Software
3Dlabs' advanced control panel optimizes your system for your applications with three mouse clicks, Colorific color-calibrates your display, Soft Engine 4 significantly enhances AutoCAD performance.

Fully Tested for All Leading Professional Graphics Applications

Including: 3D Studio Max, 3D Studio Viz, Houdini, Lightscape, LightWave 3D, Maya NT, Mirai, MultiGen Creator, Softimage|3D, AutoCAD, CATIA, I-DEAS, MicroStation, Pro/ENGINEER, Solid Edge, SolidDesigner, SolidWorks, Unigraphics

High Value Bundled Software

Oxygen VX1 comes with three high-value software bundles to increase your productivity: Vibrant's Soft Engine 4 improves display performance of AutoCAD by up to four times. 3Dlabs also delivers E-Colortms industry leading color solutions, Colorific® and True Internet Color®. Colorific® color-calibrates your display for optimal viewing and screen-to-printer matching. True Internet Color®, the only solution for delivering accurate color over the Web, enables accurate color viewing when you shop online.
