Artist Graphics
Artist GPX
Developed as a PC CAD chipset, the GPX incorporates specific CAD features such as scaling, display list processing and panning. 2D acceleration is also included with hardware support for BitBlt, scrolling, fills and raster operations. Handles graphics objects in x, y and z and has hardware Gouraud shading. Supports up to 1600x1200 at 76 Hz. Supports ISA, EISA, MCA & VLB.

Artist 3GA
Artist claims that 2D acceleration is faster than the S3 968, and the 3GA also has a fast VGA core. 3D features include accelerated 3D lines, flat shading, Gouraud shading and texture mapping. Also has 16 bit Z-buffer, supports displays up to 2048x2048 and 1600x1200 @ 90 Hz.

High-end accelerators, based on 8514 design.


Old, 8514-compatible


32-bit chip, supports 64-bit interface to video memory with 2Mb. Supports both DRAM and VRAM.

VLB speced at 33 MHz.



Integrated RAMDAC.


64-bit Mach64 based accelerator with colour space conversion, video scaling, etc. for fast video playback. Supports EDO DRAM.


Mach64 based 2D accelerator with integrated 3D acceleration supporting texture mapping, video textures, Gouraud shading, alpha blending and fog effects. Also supports video scaling in hardware.

There are also new Mach64 chips supporting SGRAM.

The Mach32 had fairly good previous generation performance. Mach64 was very efficient (competing with the VRAM S3-964, and DRAMS3-864 respectively). The 264VT provides excellent video playback. ATI has been quick to support the new SGRAM.

DOS performance is mediocre, even on recent chips. Great benefit from linear addressing mode (VBE 2.0).

Avance Logic, Inc. and Acer Labs, Inc.

They both have the 'ALI' acronym. Acer Labs also makes good quality motherboard chipsets.

Avance Logic:

Low end chipsets, fairly common a while ago for PCI. Anybody know if these guys are still in the video chipset business?

Chips and Technologies

Specializes in laptop chipsets.


Very old SVGA chipset, very limited acceleration.


Accelerated DRAM chipset that uses cache memory Used in Spider 256 Cache, and in different NEC models. Also Boca Voyager.


Laptop chipsets, accelerated.


64-bit DRAM interface.

Cirrus Logic, Inc.

Low-to-mid-end DRAM-based cards (accelerated), some laptop chipsets. Known for integrating graphic card components into one chip (built-in RAMDAC and clock generators) at an early point.

CL-GD542x series

ISA and VL-bus chipset with a 32-bit DRAM interface, and a 16-bit host bus interface. These were first generation VLB cards. All chips in this series have at least a limited form of acceleration: fill, scroll, hardware cursor.


Old, no truecolor DAC. ISA.


Old, highcolor DAC. ISA.


ISA. Has truecolor DAC.


VLB support.


TV output.

The following chips have a 'BitBLT engine', which implies better acceleration (opaque move, invert, text).


BitBLT chip. ISA, VLB. Max 2Mb.


Slightly enhanced version of the 5426.


Much faster version, appeared 1st Q 1995. Memory-mapped I/O and higher memory clock.

Performance was fair for its day, drops off at high resolutions/refresh, and gains with CPU. DOS performance was mediocre. Upgrade to 2Mb buys very little (interlaced modes only).

CL-GD543x/4x series ('Alpine')

64-bit internal acceleration. 64-bit DRAM interface on 5434/6 but only with 2Mb memory. More or less compatible with 5426/8.


'Budget' version. Limited to 32-bit DRAM interface, even with 2Mb. A bit faster than the 5428.


Has 64-bit interface to DRAM with 2Mb memory, 32bpp truecolor support.


Supports higher memory clock (60 MHz).


Highly optimized 5434, high memory clock (EDO DRAM support), packed-24 acceleration.


5430 with video support (compressed YUV, zoom, motion video, "software MPEG").


5440 with integrated filters.


Essentially 5436 with video, PowerPC and V-Port support.

The 543x had OK performance, pretty decent with 64-bit DRAM access (2MB), although DOS performance was poor in the 5430/40. The 5446 is an efficient chip with excellent DOS performance and motion video.

The 5434 was often equipped with only 1Mb, which severely crippled performance.

CL-G546x "Laguna" series


Supports RDRAM (Rambus). Video acceleration.


3D accelerator. Creative will be using it.

The CL-GD5480 is a chip announced for early 1997 supporting SGRAM clocked at 100 MHz, with acceleration based on the "Alpine" BitBLT engine

Cirrus has also produced a number of laptop/notebook chipsets:


Chipset that shared some features with the CL-GD5420, but is not compatible.


More or less compatible with the CL-GD5420.


Acceleration similar to the CL-GD5428, has some video support.


32-bit DRAM interface, acceleration similar to the 5436, with video support


64-bit DRAM interface.

Cirrus Logic started integrated graphic components design now used by most chipset makers.


VRAM-based accelerators, some cheap. Has some similarities with IBM XGA. Discontinued.

AGX-016 64-bit DRAM


High end accelerators. Excellent GUI (Windows 3.1, etc) performance. Early models (other than Millenium) characterized by abysmal VGA performance.

64-bit accelerator which supports up to 8 Meg of WRAM (Window RAM - dual ported). Supports resolutions up to 1600x1200 at very high speeds. PCI only. Incorporates hardware color space conversion and video upscaling, 3D gouraud shading, texture mapping, double and Z-buffering. Also has a fast 32-bit VGA core.

64-bit accelerator which supports up to 4 Meg of SGRAM. Fast 2D acceleration, hardware colour space conversion and video scaling for fast video, texture mapping, Gouraud shading, transparency, double buffering for fast 3D.



SVGA, limited acceleration, ISA.


Accelerated, supports VLB. Some neat features.

Oak Technologies Inc.

Low-end SVGA chipsets.


Old SVGA chipsets, 512K max.


SVGA chipset, 1Mb max. Slow.


Accelerated, 2Mb max. Not very fast (unoptimal drivers).


64-bit DRAM chipset, rare.


64-bit PCI/ISA 2D chipset. DRAM and EDO supported.


'Eon' 64-bit PCI chipset supports EDO & SGRAM. Claims to speed up 3D applications, but I doubt it has real 3D acceleration.

Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

Don't know much about this company, but the only product listed on their web pages is the RTG3105i which is billed as an all-in-one chip integrating the DAC, BIOS and clock synthesizer. Emphasis is on low cost and it will support a maximum of 512k. Could be found a few years ago.

S3, Inc.

Well-established for high-end PC graphics chipsets. Has moved into low-to-mid-end market. Generally efficient accelerators. Wide variation in card designs (RAMDAC, clock generators etc.). Acceleration interface based on IBM 8514. 8xx chips are DRAM-based, 9xx VRAM-based.

First Generation


Original S3 chip, VRAM-based. Very poor DOS performance.


Bug fix of S3-911, can support 24bpp.

Second Generation


ISA, 32-bit DRAM interface.


Local bus version, mostly 16-bit host interface. 2nd half 1994 low-end VLB.


Supports interleaved memory access with 2Mb DRAM.


Previous generation high-end chipset; 32-bit interface to VRAM for drawing.

In their day, these were good performers.

64-bit Vision series


64-bit DRAM interface with 2Mb memory. 64-bit acceleration. Variation in RAMDACs.


64-bit VRAM interface. High resolution/color depth.

Trio32 (732)

Integrated chip with 32-bit DRAM interface.

Trio64 (764)

Integrated version of S3-864 (built-in RAMDAC and clock generator) not driver-compatible with S3-864.


Trio64 with slightly faster 2D and video acceleration.


Faster Trio64V+ with UMA support.


Enhanced 864 with video acceleration features.


Enhanced 964 with video acceleration features.


Trio64V+ 2D core with 3D acceration including texture mapping, Gouraud shading, etc. Supports DRAM/EDO.


Support for VRAM/WRAM.


SGRAM support.

The early 64-bit DRAM chips had good performance (with 2MB). The engine got progressively faster with new chips.

The S3-Virge and S3-Trio64UV+ have a revamped graphics engine more optimized for Windows. The single-cycle EDO DRAM support provides relatively fast acceleration for DRAM card. In a very profitable marketing move, one card maker has offered a Virge based card with expensive single-cycle clocked EDO DRAM with optimized drivers, getting rave reviews, and so created the market for its "cheap" EDO DRAM version.

DOS performance was fair on the S3-805, while S3-928 had good DOS performance for its day. Even with later chips, it's not optimal in SVGA modes, where UniVBE/SDD or other VESA drivers can signficantly improve DOS performance.

All the 64-bit chips take a big performance hit with only 1Mb. There has been variation in memory timing (speed) between different card models.

Trio32/64 and 868 do not support packed-24 pixels (24 bpp), which generally implies no 16M color modes on a 1Mb card.

Other products:


Trio64V+ core with dual display capability for use in laptops. Simultaneous display on LCD and NTSA/PAL TV or CRT monitor.


MPEG decoder supports MPEG-1 audio/video.


Sierra Semiconductor

Well known DAC maker. Entered graphics chips market, then got out of the business.

512K only, very poor.


Supports local bus, but very slow.


Local bus, slow.


Supports 2Mb, truecolor. Accelerated.




Aggressive DRAM timing, accelerated, much quicker.


64-bit coprocessor.

Early chips and VLB accelerators had below par performance. The 9440 had OK performance considering its price, and the 9680 provides cost-effective 64-bit acceleration with video support.

Tseng Labs, Inc.

ET4000 well-established non-accelerated chipset. W32 series accelerated. ET4000/W32i and W32p support smart 32-bit interleaved memory interface with 2Mb DRAM installed, yielding 85% of the video memory bandwidth of a 64-bit interface.


Old ISA chipset, VLB OK (16-bit host interface, good response).

W32 series


Accelerated, 32-bit host interface. 32-bit memory interface. Fair performance, comparable to Cirrus 5426.


Your Great New Jersey Web Sited acceleration, supports interleaved memory with 2Mb. Very fast blits (efficient memory arbitration).


Your Great New Jersey Web Sited acceleration, better host bus interface support (incl. PCI). Special video support. Several revisions, significant variation. Revisions before C or D may have crippled/broken PCI performance.

While the W32 had mediocre performance, a W32i/p with 2MB DRAM was fairly quick, thanks to efficient BitBLTs. DOS performance was good except on an earlier revision ET4000/W32p on PCI bus.

ET6000 is Tseng's newest chipset offering even faster VGA performance than the very respectable ET4000. A summarized version of Tseng's spec. sheet is included below.

The ET6000 is a single 208-pin SVGA graphics controller with an integrated 135MHz VGA-compatible 24-bit LUT-DAC and dual frequency clock generator. PCI 2.1 and VESA VLB compatible I/O interface.
