Before release the company was renamed to Chromatic Research. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author’s experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. Turning mip-mapping off makes Viper Racing look lot better. SGS-Thomson joined the band as another manufacturer. Should have Chromatic fed their gamers via web with actually useful driver updates, maybe gamers could have been more patient and spread some good word about Mpact2. This meant premature end of driver support because ATi could not be bothered to offer any help. The company was not able to interest its customers to cooperate on software development, nor create enough revenue to cover its development cost.

The company was formerly known as Xenon Microsystems Corporation. Second Mpact In year the earth was hit by a giant meteo In a parallel project, the company was also working on a media enabled x86 compatible CPU that did not see the light of day. Last driver brought updated version that speed up Quake 2 nicely, but broke compatibility with Quake 3 curomatic Sin.

Mpact2 surprised me with its compatibility, but for a multi function DSP board I had low expectations to begin with. Inside Mpact2 The design revolves around similar VLIW core capable of issuing one or two instructions packed into a 72 bit word per cycle. The architecture revolves around multiport addressable SRAM instead of registers, chfomatic also has four special purpose registers for indirect addressing of its 72 bit SRAM entries.

Linux – Hardware This forum is for Hardware issues. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. These cost efficient chips carry R in the name, i. Experience Mpact2 surprised me with its compatibility, but for a multi function DSP board I had low expectations to begin with. Rambus is high frequency, low pin count memory solution.

Interestingly enough, most of these big bugs do not appear in older driver and after combining results from two driver versions I could successfully complete almost all game tests.

I’m farely new to Linux yet having had Amigo running I’m willing to slog on. Unlike fixed function graphics program jumps are supported and hardware loop counts too and without branch overhead.

Broken transparency in Expendable covers whole screen with gray color.

So I found in the Amigo config files that the vid card driver for ‘chromatic research’ was created by knoppix. Similar instructions were eventually added to Intel’s MMX x86 instruction set extensions. Note that registered members see fewer ads, and ContentLink is completely disabled once you log in. Mpact 2 rev 41 any help is welcome. First Mpact had little to offer as a 3d card and some dedicated hardware clearly became necessary to cover new trends.


Internal SRAM is expanded to 8 kb with 6 read and 6 write ports.

Quake 2 was up to expectations, Quake 3 worked only via d3d wrapper. The new multimedia processor still features a tight co-design of software and hardware, integrates a second RDRAM channel, enabling a separate 8 kb instruction cache.

Architecture Grey parts are programmable. Second Motoracer was broken completely. Enabling texture filtering in Motoracer layed down disruptive black lines on the track. And then there is a wrapper for GlQuake and Quake 2, but it is a beta with issues.

Backgrounds of Resident Evil are covered in black. The lifespan of the company was roughly to Performance Here are average framerates, click on image to see minimal. Those enhancements are made possible by much improved 0.

Mpact issue two instructions at once and each can control multiple ALUs.
