Re: Sun CG12 / GS aka Matrox SG3-1152B graphics accelerator for 3D solid applications

Thx, have the docs already but are quite interesting. The QG-640 is from an internal view - excluding Q-bus - equal to PG-640, I suppose. And yes, the parent directory has many more stuff. ;-)

Re: Sun CG12 / GS aka Matrox SG3-1152B graphics accelerator for 3D solid applications

After installation of all tools and utilities, including header files I managed to compile all XGL and XIL demos. The output of the XGL demo "inq" wasn't what I expected: still many lines with "emulated in software" $ inq Inquire Information: Sun:GS Direct Graphics Access Acceler...

Re: Sun CG12 / GS aka Matrox SG3-1152B graphics accelerator for 3D solid applications

Then will do a trace on the SunDiag run to know if I already have the high resolution version and low res is maybe 1024*768 with Sun Part# 370-1329 (?) After I found the header file cg12reg.h it's clear and interesting because I don't have any further information about the HR version. (...) #define...

Seems to work, some kind of ... with demo transparency_ovl the X Server crashed after loading the two OpenLook windows. The demo (transparency_ovl) is working in general, but always if I want to take a screenshot the X Server will fail and terminate. Nevertheless there isn't much acceleration with ...

Re: Sun CG12 / GS aka Matrox SG3-1152B graphics accelerator for 3D solid applications

There where some graphics options in the 90's which are able to support even higher resolutions, if necessary not in 24-Bit color depth. The following table lists all Sun boards (from the SSH) I could remember, used in the 90's (<2000) with resolution support >= 1600*1200 px Product ; Bus ; Resoluti...
