Taking price into account it performs quite well in old games even with small amount of local memory. Everything seemed to be in place, and Cirrus promised shipping of first 3D accelerator by the end of In the early s, Cirrus Logic became a supplier of PC graphics chips, audio converters and chips for magnetic storage products.

Select type of offense: Pixels are tested by masks and depth comparison cirru with help by cache, before lighting and blending is processed. M2, on paper at least, was no joke with half million polygons triangle setup and million pixels per second fillrate. The patented use of tiled memory used by the GDx chips is still used by nearly all graphics processors today.
