The Permedia 3 and GLINT R3 also introduced support for hardware dot product bump mapping, but this feature would not be extensively used in games until a year or so after its release. Both are also Direct3D 6-compliant. Likewise with Delta, the Gamma G1 geometry co-processor is not optimized for games. However, the Delta geometry co-processor is optimized for professional 3D and CAD applications rather than for games, resulting in anemic overall gaming performance. The discrete Delta geometry co-processor chip originally featured in the Permedia NT is now integrated into the Permedia 2's core logic, resulting in a single-chip solution. Their performance in professional 3D and CAD applications, however, is much better. The 3D Blaster VLB nowadays is a very rare card and usually if it shows up on auction websites, the price will be very high. The Oxygen GVX1 featured a separate geometry co-processor known as Gamma G1 chip for performing transformation, clipping and lighting calculations, extending what the Delta co-processor performed in the Permedia and Permedia 2 series. Later card revisions added AGP 4x support - if purchased in a retail box, there usually will be an "AGP 4x" sticker present on the box to indicate such support. Jump to: The Permedia 2 is also 3DLabs' last graphics chip with Windows 95 support. Games that do take advantage of the 3D Blaster VLB usually run in higher resolution x or x and with additional graphics detail. The Permedia 3, however, had more emphasis on being directed at gaming. On the upside, the main advantage at the time was that 3DLabs was the only company producing consumer-level graphics chips that had full OpenGL ICD driver support other manufacturers didn't support OpenGL at all or released a miniport driver instead.
