Hardware 3Dlabs has introduced the Wildcat III series of PC graphics accelerators. Building on the very powerful Wildcat II line of cards, the new cards offer the largest-ever onboard memory capacity for an AGP add-in board and up to 244 percent faster performance than the nearest competitor.

The Wildcat III 6110 and 6210 differ only in their onboard memory configurations. The 6110 features 64 MB of frame buffer memory, 128 MB of texture memory, and 16 MB of DirectBurst memory for a total of 208 MB of onboard memory. The 6210 features double the memory in each category for a total of 416 MB of onboard memory.

Other new features in the Wildcat III series are:

  • Support for OpenGL 1.3 and OpenML 1.0
  • Support for DirectX 7.0
  • Support for multitexturing, bump-mapping and cube-mapping
  • Up to 32 lights in hardware (versus 24 in previous versions)
  • Dual DVI support
  • Multiview and genlock support
  • SuperScene antialiasing and 3D volumetric texturing
The Wildcat III is only available through 3Dlabs' workstation partners. For the 6110, this includes Compaq and HP. So far, only HP is offering the 6210 version of the card.
