At SIGGRAPH 2001, the 28th International Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, 3Dlabs, Inc.

Since last year's SIGGRAPH, 3Dlabs has accumulated widespread acclaim from analysts, press, and graphics professionals with a series of landmark achievements, including:

  • A study by Jon Peddie Associates confirmed that 3Dlabs shipped more 3D workstation-class graphics controllers in 2000 than any other company for the year 2000.

  • Introduction of the next-generation Wildcat II 5110, heralded
    as "the fastest workstation graphics on the planet" by PC Magazine (March, 2001).

    Wildcat Widely Available in Channel

  • A new Wildcat Partner Program that makes Wildcat graphics accelerators available in the reseller channel for the first time.

  • Introduction of the Wildcat II 5000, with best-of-class
    performance for an estimated street price of less than $1400.

    Record-Breaking Benchmark Scores

    Top Workstations Feature 3Dlabs
  • Key OEM design wins including Compaq Computer Corporation,

    Displays on PC-based workstations (announced today).

    "At SIGGRAPH 2001, 3Dlabs looks back on an exciting year of accomplishments, thanks to the overwhelming success of our Wildcat II and Oxygen products in the channel and among OEM workstation vendors," said Osman Kent, president and CEO of 3Dlabs. "With the Wildcat II 5000 gaining momentum as our first midrange Wildcat product, and with new breakthrough technologies on the immediate horizon, we look ahead to another year of milestones in delivering performance, quality and productivity to workstation graphics professionals."

    Dazzling Demos in 3Dlabs Booth No. 1423

    At the 3Dlabs booth (No. 1423), 3Dlabs will be partnering with top professional software vendors to showcase leading applications in digital content creation and CAD on a variety of different platforms, including Windows NT/2000 and Solaris. The company also is demonstrating the latest in display technology, featuring a PC workstation graphics card driving dual Apple Cinema Displays. 3Dlabs Oxygen and Wildcat graphics accelerators also can be found in more than 15 booths throughout the exhibition floor.

    In addition, 3Dlabs, AMD, NEC and Trek Bicycles are teaming up to sponsor a contest in which the grand prize is a complete high-end workstation. It will be equipped with dual AMD Athlon processors, an NEC 18" flat panel monitor, and a 3Dlabs' Wildcat II 5110 graphics accelerator.
