Mach64 was very efficient (competing with the VRAM S3-964, and DRAMS3-864 respectively). The 264VT provides excellent video playback. ATI has been quick to support the new SGRAM. DOS performance is mediocre, even on recent chips. Great benefit from linear addressing mode (VBE 2.0). ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Avance Logic, Inc. and Acer Labs, Inc. They both have the 'ALI' acronym. Acer Labs also makes good quality motherboard chipsets. Avance Logic: Low end chipsets, fairly common a while ago for PCI. Anybody know if these guys are still in the video chipset business?

(ALi CAT-32/64) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Chips and Technologies Specializes in laptop chipsets. 82c452 Very old SVGA chipset, very limited acceleration. 64300 Accelerated DRAM chipset that uses cache memory Used in Spider 256 Cache, and in different NEC models. Also Boca Voyager. 65545/46/48 Laptop chipsets, accelerated. 65550/54 64-bit DRAM interface. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cirrus Logic, Inc. Low-to-mid-end DRAM-based cards (accelerated), some laptop chipsets. Known for integrating graphic card components into one chip (built-in RAMDAC and clock generators) at an early point. CL-GD542x series ISA and VL-bus chipset with a 32-bit DRAM interface, and a 16-bit host bus interface. These were first generation VLB cards. All chips in this series have at least a limited form of acceleration: fill, scroll, hardware cursor. CL-GD5420 Old, no truecolor DAC. ISA. CL-GD5421 Old, highcolor DAC. ISA. CL-GD5422 ISA. Has truecolor DAC. CL-GD5424 VLB support. CL-GD5425 TV output. The following chips have a 'BitBLT engine', which implies better acceleration (opaque move, invert, text). CL-GD5426 BitBLT chip. ISA, VLB. Max 2Mb. CL-GD5428 Slightly enhanced version of the 5426. CL-GD5429 Much faster version, appeared 1st Q 1995. Memory-mapped I/O and higher memory clock. Performance was fair for its day, drops off at high resolutions/refresh, and gains with CPU. DOS performance was mediocre. Upgrade to 2Mb buys very little (interlaced modes only). CL-GD543x/4x series ('Alpine') 64-bit internal acceleration. 64-bit DRAM interface on 5434/6 but only with 2Mb memory. More or less compatible with 5426/8. CL-GD54(M)30 'Budget' version. Limited to 32-bit DRAM interface, even with 2Mb. A bit faster than the 5428. CL-GD5434 Has 64-bit interface to DRAM with 2Mb memory, 32bpp truecolor support. CL-GD5434-E Supports higher memory clock (60 MHz). CL-GD5436 Highly optimized 5434, high memory clock (EDO DRAM support), packed-24 acceleration. CL-GD5440 5430 with video support (compressed YUV, zoom, motion video, "software MPEG"). CL-GD54M40 5440 with integrated filters. CL-GD5446 Essentially 5436 with video, PowerPC and V-Port support. The 543x had OK performance, pretty decent with 64-bit DRAM access (2MB), although DOS performance was poor in the 5430/40. The 5446 is an efficient chip with excellent DOS performance and motion video. The 5434 was often equipped with only 1Mb, which severely crippled performance. CL-G546x "Laguna" series CL-GD5462 Supports RDRAM (Rambus). Video acceleration. CL-GD5464 3D accelerator. Creative will be using it. The CL-GD5480 is a chip announced for early 1997 supporting SGRAM clocked at 100 MHz, with acceleration based on the "Alpine" BitBLT engine Cirrus has also produced a number of laptop/notebook chipsets: CL-GD6420/40 Chipset that shared some features with the CL-GD5420, but is not compatible. CL-GD62x5 More or less compatible with the CL-GD5420. CL-GD7543 Acceleration similar to the CL-GD5428, has some video support. CL-GD7548 32-bit DRAM interface, acceleration similar to the 5436, with video support CL-GD7555 64-bit DRAM interface. Cirrus Logic started integrated graphic components design now used by most chipset makers. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- IIT (AGX) VRAM-based accelerators, some cheap. Has some similarities with IBM XGA. Discontinued. AGX-015 AGX-016 64-bit DRAM ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matrox High end accelerators. Excellent GUI (Windows 3.1, etc) performance. Early models (other than Millenium) characterized by abysmal VGA performance. MGA-2064W 64-bit accelerator which supports up to 8 Meg of WRAM (Window RAM - dual ported). Supports resolutions up to 1600x1200 at very high speeds. PCI only. Incorporates hardware color space conversion and video upscaling, 3D gouraud shading, texture mapping, double and Z-buffering. Also has a fast 32-bit VGA core. MGA-1064SG 64-bit accelerator which supports up to 4 Meg of SGRAM. Fast 2D acceleration, hardware colour space conversion and video scaling for fast video, texture mapping, Gouraud shading, transparency, double buffering for fast 3D. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- NCR 77C22(E(+)) SVGA, limited acceleration, ISA. 77C32BLT Accelerated, supports VLB. Some neat features. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oak Technologies Inc. Low-end SVGA chipsets. OTI-057/67 Old SVGA chipsets, 512K max. OTI-077 SVGA chipset, 1Mb max. Slow. OTI-087 Accelerated, 2Mb max. Not very fast (unoptimal drivers). OTI-64105/107 64-bit DRAM chipset, rare. OTI-64111 64-bit PCI/ISA 2D chipset. DRAM and EDO supported. OTI-64217 'Eon' 64-bit PCI chipset supports EDO & SGRAM. Claims to speed up 3D applications, but I doubt it has real 3D acceleration. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Don't know much about this company, but the only product listed on their web pages is the RTG3105i which is billed as an all-in-one chip integrating the DAC, BIOS and clock synthesizer. Emphasis is on low cost and it will support a maximum of 512k. Could be found a few years ago. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- S3, Inc. Well-established for high-end PC graphics chipsets. Has moved into low-to-mid-end market. Generally efficient accelerators. Wide variation in card designs (RAMDAC, clock generators etc.). Acceleration interface based on IBM 8514. 8xx chips are DRAM-based, 9xx VRAM-based. First Generation S3-911 Original S3 chip, VRAM-based. Very poor DOS performance. S3-924 Bug fix of S3-911, can support 24bpp. Second Generation S3-801 ISA, 32-bit DRAM interface. S3-805/805p Local bus version, mostly 16-bit host interface. 2nd half 1994 low-end VLB. S3-805i Supports interleaved memory access with 2Mb DRAM. S3-928 Previous generation high-end chipset; 32-bit interface to VRAM for drawing. In their day, these were good performers. 64-bit Vision series S3-864 64-bit DRAM interface with 2Mb memory. 64-bit acceleration. Variation in RAMDACs. S3-964 64-bit VRAM interface. High resolution/color depth. Trio32 (732) Integrated chip with 32-bit DRAM interface. Trio64 (764) Integrated version of S3-864 (built-in RAMDAC and clock generator) not driver-compatible with S3-864. Trio64V+ Trio64 with slightly faster 2D and video acceleration. Trio64UV+ Faster Trio64V+ with UMA support. S3-868 Enhanced 864 with video acceleration features. S3-968 Enhanced 964 with video acceleration features. S3-ViRGE Trio64V+ 2D core with 3D acceration including texture mapping, Gouraud shading, etc. Supports DRAM/EDO. S3-ViRGE/VX Support for VRAM/WRAM. S3-ViRGE/GX SGRAM support. The early 64-bit DRAM chips had good performance (with 2MB). The engine got progressively faster with new chips. The S3-Virge and S3-Trio64UV+ have a revamped graphics engine more optimized for Windows. The single-cycle EDO DRAM support provides relatively fast acceleration for DRAM card. In a very profitable marketing move, one card maker has offered a Virge based card with expensive single-cycle clocked EDO DRAM with optimized drivers, getting rave reviews, and so created the market for its "cheap" EDO DRAM version. DOS performance was fair on the S3-805, while S3-928 had good DOS performance for its day. Even with later chips, it's not optimal in SVGA modes, where UniVBE/SDD or other VESA drivers can signficantly improve DOS performance. All the 64-bit chips take a big performance hit with only 1Mb. There has been variation in memory timing (speed) between different card models. Trio32/64 and 868 do not support packed-24 pixels (24 bpp), which generally implies no 16M color modes on a 1Mb card. Other products: Aurora64V+ Trio64V+ core with dual display capability for use in laptops. Simultaneous display on LCD and NTSA/PAL TV or CRT monitor. Scenic/MX2 MPEG decoder supports MPEG-1 audio/video. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sierra Semiconductor Well known DAC maker. Entered graphics chips market, then got out of the business. SC15064 Integrated DAC, fast bus interface. (Falcon/64) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trident Microsystems Long-established low-end chipsets. Early chips known for poor performance, but very cheap. Recent chips more competitive. TVGA8900C Old ISA, SVGA. Extremely poor performance. TVGA9000 512K only, very poor. TVGA8900CL Supports local bus, but very slow. TVGA9200Cxr Local bus, slow. TVGA9400CXi Supports 2Mb, truecolor. Accelerated. TGUI9420/30 Accelerated. TGUI9440AGi Aggressive DRAM timing, accelerated, much quicker. TGUI9660/968x 64-bit coprocessor. Early chips and VLB accelerators had below par performance. The 9440 had OK performance considering its price, and the 9680 provides cost-effective 64-bit acceleration with video support. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tseng Labs, Inc. ET4000 well-established non-accelerated chipset. W32 series accelerated. ET4000/W32i and W32p support smart 32-bit interleaved memory interface with 2Mb DRAM installed, yielding 85% of the video memory bandwidth of a 64-bit interface. ET4000AX Old ISA chipset, VLB OK (16-bit host interface, good response). W32 series ET4000/W32 Accelerated, 32-bit host interface. 32-bit memory interface. Fair performance, comparable to Cirrus 5426. ET4000/W32i Improved acceleration, supports interleaved memory with 2Mb. Very fast blits (efficient memory arbitration). ET4000/W32p Improved acceleration, better host bus interface support (incl. PCI). Special video support. Several revisions, significant variation. Revisions before C or D may have crippled/broken PCI performance. While the W32 had mediocre performance, a W32i/p with 2MB DRAM was fairly quick, thanks to efficient BitBLTs. DOS performance was good except on an earlier revision ET4000/W32p on PCI bus. ET6000 is Tseng's newest chipset offering even faster VGA performance than the very respectable ET4000. A summarized version of Tseng's spec. sheet is included below.
