Beetje errug laat, maar daar issie dan: de PCI versie van de Videologic Neon250. Hier een paar zoden uit de press release:
VideoLogic Systems - a division of Imagination Technologies - has today launched a PCI version of its Neon 250 graphics card. Neon 250 PCI will be available from the end of November 1999 from VideoLogic's network of distributors, resellers and retailers for just $169 (USA) / £106 (UK RRP, excluding VAT) and from VideoLogic's web store at www.videologic.com.
The VideoLogic Neon 250 features the NEC PowerVR 250 graphics processor with full PCI 2.1 support and integrated 250 MHz RAMDAC and comes with 32 MB of high performance SDRAM memory running at 125 MHz.
Kevin Dale, VP worldwide marketing and sales, says: "Neon 250 is a performance leader amongst PCI offerings. The demand for PCI accelerators remains considerable but many vendors have decided to ignore this important upgrade market. Neon 250 is the best possible choice for users who are looking to update their PCI 3D graphics."
On an Intel Pentium III 600 based system Neon 250 PCI achieves 64.8 frames per second on the Quake II Crusher demo and 82.7 frames per second on the Quake III Demo1, both at 640x480 resolution. On 3DMark 99 Max, run at 800x600 resolution, Neon 250 PCI scores 4061. 1
On a typical PCI system - an Intel Pentium 200 MMX - Neon 250 PCI achieves 17.5 frames per second on the Quake II Crusher demo and 23.3 frames per second on the Quake III Demo1, both at 640x480 resolution. On 3DMark 99 Max, run at 800x600 resolution, Neon 250 PCI scores 1107.2
Neon 250 is based on the PowerVR 250 chip, part of the PowerVR Series2 family designed by PowerVR Technology and marketed by NEC. Other PowerVR Series2 chips are used in Sega's Dreamcast* console, the Sega Naomi* arcade system and on the R-Cade Vision 250* from VideoLogic Systems for the ArcadePC platform.
