In February, , 3Dlabs announced that it would stop developing professional 3D graphic chips and focus on embedded and mobile media processors. Texture address unit also properly handles perspective correction, however there is an option for less accurate division to avoid speed impact. The processors integrate on-chip peripherals and interfaces suitable for a broad range of handheld and embedded devices. Not exactly grey, but the lack of true black might bother some. The rest of the company reformed under ZiiLABS, still as a subsidy of Creative, and reoriented their business solely to silicon for mobile devices. Overall it was a decent all-rounder card, though certainly not exceptional in any particular area.

And yeah it’s quite slow.

And the advantages like extremely high sub-pixel accuracy and higher precision float formats were fading away.

Drivers and permedia 2 support for these products can be found at: It is missing a number of important features.
This card is based on two Permedia 2 chips, but the chips don’t summarize their power, they just drive two monitors.
It was the entry level pro graphics chip and that’s why it was onboard Diamond’s FireGL Pro workstation card. Although, I was doing some 3D modeling at the time, and the Permedia 2 permedia 2 surprisingly competent there.
