3Dlabs, represented in Australia by Intercad , has released the Wildcat Realizm 100 and 200 graphics accelerators.
The accelerators pair the Wildcat Realizm visual processing unit (VPU) with up to 512 MB of onboard GDDR3 memory. They are programmable to OpenGL shading language and Microsoft DirectX 9.0 HLSL shader programs.
The Realizm 200 has a VPU and 512 MB of onboard memory. It can handle large models and textures. It has two dual-link DVI-I connectors which are suitable for driving multiple high-resolution displays from a single graphics accelerator, including the dual high-end 9.2 Megapixel displays.
The Realizm 100 integrates a VPU and 256 MB of 256-bit GDDR3 memory for over 32GB/s of bandwidth. It is equipped with two single-link DVI-I connectors, two DVI to VGA display adaptors and a stereo connector. It delivers a 50 frames a second score on the Viewperf 7.1.1 UGS-03 benchmark.
The Wildcat Realizm Multiview option kit integrates 3Dlabs’ Genlock and Framelock capabilities for synchronisation between displays and systems for visual simulation, virtual reality and broadcast applications. To add Framelock and Genlock capabilities to the Wildcat Realizm 200, the kit offers an interface card, which occupies the space of an additional slot. It includes both a jumper cable to connect to the graphics accelerator and a six-foot Framelock cable.
