XPedite2000 is software compatible with all Cavium standard PCI, PCI-X accelerator boards. Cavium's software support includes a rich, full-featured set of software drivers, utilities, a common API set and reference application software.
"Our multi-year relationship with 3Dlabs continues to provide great options for our customers with tested, high-performance graphics such as the Sun XVR-500 accelerator boards," said Bjorn Annderson, group marketing manager for graphics and visual media at Sun Microsystems.
Through NVIDIA's ELSA-designed software advantage, customers take advantage of a wide array of unique, high-performance drivers and utilities to enable Synergy and GLoria accelerator boards to achieve maximum 2D/3D graphics performance.
He said the NetStation addresses the bandwidth problem by allowing multiple ISDN lines to be linked up and said that the Pentium III - which is expected to hit the streets in March - will provide the kind of processing power needed to make videoconferencing viable - as it is able to handle the complex compression/decompression (codec) of data required for videoconferencing without recourse to additional accelerator boards. All intensive activity at the processor end should help to drive demand for higher-end desktop CPUs - like the Pentium III - but the spokesperson decried such suggestions and characterized Intel's move as a public service, saying it would help replace "all these plug-in boards."
The computers can be outfitted with one, two, or four 150-megahertz P6 processors, and they incorporate the vendor's OpenGL-based 3-D graphics accelerator boards. The workstations also have up to 32 MB of texture memory, up to 34 MB of video RAM, 24- or 32-bit Z buffers, and 24-bit true-color double buffering.
