Display drivers are available for Windows 3. Permedia NT differs from the original in that it features a separate geometry co-processor chip known as Delta for performing geometry setup calculations. However, the Delta geometry co-processor is optimized for professional 3D and CAD applications rather than for games, resulting in anemic overall gaming performance.

On the upside, the main advantage at the time was that 3DLabs was the only company producing consumer-level graphics chips that had 3D Labs GLINT Compatible VGA Driver OpenGL ICD driver support other manufacturers didn't support OpenGL at all or released a miniport driver instead. The discrete Delta geometry co-processor chip originally featured in the Permedia NT is now integrated into the Permedia 2's core logic, resulting in a single-chip solution.

Permedia 2 supports AGP texturing as well as 3D rendering in bit color depth.

3dlabs Permedia 3D review

However, it does not support colored vertex blending, which results in games using only monochromatic lighting - notable examples are in 3D Labs GLINT Compatible VGA Driver 2 and Quake III: Arena only supports vertex lighting on the Permedia 2. The Permedia 2 is also 3DLabs' last graphics chip with Windows 95 support. Both were released in mid and again were directed at the professional 3D and CAD application market. The Permedia 3, however, had more emphasis on being directed at gaming.

Both are also Direct3D 6-compliant. The Permedia 3 and GLINT R3 also introduced support for hardware dot product bump mapping, but this feature would not be extensively used in games until a year or so after its release. It isn't anything worthy of the compression name, it just effectively reduces textures into quarters.

But without it, the Permedia will just drop almost all textures in GlQuake. Pallete extension does not look very compatible here. It is possible to see all textures at least in default demo, though it is still not enough to enjoy regular game without some white polygons.

Bigass demo is a different beast, some player skins were dropped and in the heat of explosions Permedia was often giving up on bilinear filtering. Disabling texture modulation can help some d3d games to run.

These tests will be remembered as endless fight for more texture memory. See Permedia 3D gallery Quake 2 has own problems, transparency does not work and some polygons always turn black during explosions.

There are games refusing to work in any case: Falcon 4. Beyond the Frontier test and Whipeout completely freezes the PC.

Sin would also, but Chromatic's wrapper is an alternative, even if badly looking. The Sky texture of Lands of Lore 2 suffers from blinking. To enjoy 32 bit textures on top of that one really has to go for a card with more memory.

Resident Evil often suffers from large horizontal bars covering the actual scenes. Then there are all the issues caused by missing multiplicative blending operation.

You won't get to see any textures in Thief, Shogo and Warbirds.
