Yousuf Palla joined as Vice President of Operations and Manufacturing, contributing further to its success.

Initial promotion price of hundred bucks should be a sign that Laguna3D is not so hot performer. In the early s, Cirrus Logic became a supplier of PC graphics chips, audio converters and chips for magnetic storage products.

Incoming in 32 bit mode, no sign of dithering, but broken lens flares still ruin the show. Anyway, focus then moved onto storage, audio chips and data acquisition technology used for communication and industrial applications.

For demonstration here are screens from Shadows of the Empire: It was one of the lowest-priced SVGA controllers to support both. Laguna3D PCI merely once calculates interpolated color between pixels and uses that, effectively doubling their amount.

Cirrus Logic went public in and accelerated growth through acquisitions among which were Pixel Semiconductor and Acumos. Last chip revision C was for motherboard integration.

Lovic Patiland in the company was reorganized by Dr.

Up to 8 MB of local memory are supported and Techworks planned to release 6 and 8 MB cards, but I don’t think that ever happened. For more screenshots see the Laguna3D gallery. Flexible yet fabless way was to at least buy long term foundry capacity. Then Cirrus Logic embraced graphics and communications products. A new product line should have helped fill those capacities- 3d accelerators.

Cirrus Logic Laguna3D review

By Cirrus became major player in graphics as well as other areas of incoming digital future. World texturing does not work in those, promise of single lighting pass from spec sheets is really only for basic techniques.

Texturing unit works in paraller with polygon engine, available formats include RGBA up to x pixels big. When Intel announced they were entering the 3D market with the i Cirrus Logic exited the market, which at the time for Cirrus Logic was worth million dollars annually. And Cirrus Logic as a whole was bleeding.

3-Channel, Single Phase Power/Energy IC

It joined the Nasdaq market listing in symbol: Even if execution units are designed to process multiple operations in single pass, their inputs cannot be fed fast enough. Unreal just skips lightmaps alone and Laguna is useless for other effects as well.


Our processors would appreciate more something like triangle setup, but at least there is something unique inside Laguna3D. Laguna3D kogic into problem child, which was sold mostly for discount prices.

Inside the chips only logoc obvious improvement is fixed bilinear filter, which I will get to later. Space dust and engine trails in Homeworld are opaque and single color. So there are different opinions whether the company was mismanaged or victim of its own success.

Cirrus Logic

Battlezone and Interstate 76 demo reject the card outright. In April Cirrus has licensed the 3D portion of 3DO’s M2 technology, a bit graphics acceleration built for new console. Laguna3D has pins for second channel already reserved, to maintain the same board layout with future planned products using two channels to double the firrus bandwidth.
