Appian Graphics yesterday announced the availability of the Jeronimo 2000 for Macintosh, a single-card AGP graphics accelerator that supports dual-monitor connections. It features 32 MB of onboard SGRAM and two Permedia3 accelerators. It offers resolutions of up to 1,920 x 1,080 on each monitor with 32 bits per pixel depth. It can also support 16 bits and 8 bits, with refresh rates of 60 Hz, 75 Hz or 85 Hz, regardless of bit depth or resolution. The card was designed for Mac OS 9.

The 3Dlabs Permedia3 accelerators are 300 MHz RAMDAC 128-bit controllers for 2D acceleration on analog SVGA monitors. It features an Appian/B1 bridge chip and provides support for multiple cards for expansion beyond two monitors. It allows users to change settings for each monitor individually through Apple's built-in Monitors and Sound Control Panel. It also provides support for DDC and ACPI.

At press time we were waiting for a call back from the company to find out about 3D support. The Windows version of the card supports Direct3D and OpenGL acceleration.
