For discrete graphics SiS prepared bit architecture numbered , but with uninspiring speed and higher cost was barely registered in the retail market. SiS was abandoning other challenging products through the years, sold it’s fabs and today does not offer any key PC core logic anymore, despite buying back rest of XGI in Image quality issues are the same as with C1, but was memory management improved by AGP? I have to comment on 2d speed as well. This page was last edited on 27 August , at Which makes little sense to me, SiS at that time had to know performance of is too low to become gamers choice, but it still could be good multimedia product.

It is a bad sign when company concentrates on promoting interface rather than compute power of the chip itself.

Silicon Integrated Systems is a Taiwanese corporation founded in Here is the gallery to see more.
Back then all three cards in my possession were this version anyway. Having started testing with Windows 95 I used last driver for the system- 1. At least chipsets business was again gaining momentum thanks to some great innovative 626.
Major flaw is how some 2d images seem distorted, for avp characters in Myth or fonts in Incoming and Unreal. Vertex fog is properly blended with all surfaces.

Therefore, it is safe to say even cheapest cards with 626 MHz memory will outrun fastest Virge. Also Incoming showed some excessive color banding.
I have to comment on 2d speed as well. Outside of Id world I tried Star Siege, again succesfully. SiS tried to provide some extras in control panels, nothing 3d related though.
I thought maybe with some crystal mod I could become lucky owner of the fastest “evah”, but the DAC is tied to the same source. With it’s full triangle setup, texture cache and optionally beefy MPEG decoder, outperformed more famous budget chips like those from ATi and S3. The image quality of AGP is 63326 but few things are still lowering overall impression.
Thanks to that I saw properly lighted Unreal which does not happen with last Windows 98 driver.
SiS remained focused on low-end in and their first TnL chip “” simply tried to do similar DX7 rendering as competition for “Asian” price. For discrete graphics SiS prepared bit architecture numberedbut with uninspiring speed and higher cost was barely registered in the retail market.

Exceptionally, some specific textures are showing excessive color banding, probably because driver chose wrong format, or additional dithering.
It steadily grew around core logic and multimedia products. The cards Since first revision featured strong idct mpegII decoder, as Miro is promoting here. I tried C5 and these bugs ag gone. But guess what, you can play some GlQuake on without it, because it is compatible with the S3 Quake wrapper for Virge. On the internet was circulating information about the 2d engine being limited to 4MB of memory, but this seems to be true only 66326 legacy VESA modes.
