Graphics For Your Desktop and Laptop

Hardware There are some hot new graphics cards out for your desktop workstation and Cadence has a fresh review for you to study.

Cadence tested the 3Dlabs Wildcat II 5110, the ATI Fire GL4, and the ELSA Gloria III - all top of the line cards. The cards were run through the SolidWorks 99 and 3D Studio Max 3.1 Benchmarks. The best? The Wildcat, but it will cost you around $2200US.

For you mobile engineers, nVIDIA announced today at SIGGRAPH 2001 the Quadro2 Go. Offering the same graphics engine as the gForce2 Go, but adding additional support for engineering applications (such as antialiased lines and overlay support), the Quadro2 Go allows engineers to design in 3D on a mobile platform.

“There is a clear need for mobile 3D workstations,” stated Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO at NVIDIA. “Quadro2 Go-enabled laptops will transform the way design professionals work. Armed with a powerful mobile workstation, design engineers and artists are now able to create whenever and wherever they are inspired. And be able to demonstrate their work to customers and collaborators wherever they may be.”
The Quadro2 Go will be available in several OEM laptops this fall.
