Features and Benefits

100% Geometry and Lighting Acceleration
Oxygen GVX1 is the only sub-$1000 board to deliver complete OpenGL® geometry and lighting acceleration in hardware. Hardware geometry boosts the interactivity of large models by up to three times and offloads the CPU for increased application performance. The GLINT Gamma G1 processes 100% of the OpenGL geometry pipeline in silicon, including 16 simultaneous light sources.

Virtual Textures
An industry first. Oxygen GVX1 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 GVX1 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.

Pentium® III-optimized PowerThreads™ SSE OpenGL Drivers
3Dlabs' new-generation PowerThreads OpenGL drivers are fully optimized for Pentium III and dynamically balance geometry and lighting load between the GLINT Gamma hardware geometry processor and the system CPU. PowerThreads gives you the power of geometry hardware plus the additional power of Pentium III's SSE-instructions for full performance scalability with faster host CPU's.

Legendary 3Dlabs Driver Quality
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

Flexible Display Capability
Up to 1920x1200 (or 2048x1536 with driver support - Sept 99) display resolutions, up to 8 monitors with mix and match AGP and PCI boards, direct connection to digital flat panels up to 1280x1024 and true-color quad-buffered stereo up to 1280x1024 resolution.

Sophisticated 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.

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 GVX1 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 color you can trust with E-Color™. E-Color technology delivers enhanced image quality for all user levels from Internet-savvy online shoppers to intensive digital content professionals. E-Color's Colorific® gives you precise, predictable color matching between your screen and color peripherals by measuring your display system in a few fun and simple steps. From screen to printer, scanner, and digital camera, you'll get consistent color with Colorific.

Praise for OXYGEN GVX1

"The new Oxygen GVX1 provides compelling 3D acceleration for the highly interactive, complex modeling requirements of Softimage users. Oxygen GVX1 is a high-performance, cost-effective solution for serious 3D animators."
