    From the mid 90's, when everyone was developing their own 3D accelerator chipsets:

    Product name is: "Double Dragon" [​IMG]

    I don't remember ever hearing about this one, and it looks like we never did again after their press release. [​IMG]

    BRender claims to support it in their October 1996 website:

    I'd be interested in any additional information.

    The old S5PC100 SoC (Cortex-A8, similar to what was in the iPhone 3GS except the GPU part) had what appeared to be an in-house developed Samsung GPU too. OpenGL 2.0 compatible, which was pretty competitive feature-wise for a mobile GPU back then. I don't think the performance or drivers were very good, though.

    Hah, I've actually been _sending_ vlask info lately (you'll notice a lot of his videocard entries at http://vgamuseum.info/ now have some informative PDFs attached)

    The last time I sent Timber a message (a year or two ago) I did not receive a response. I can always try again...

    I would try to circle back to every hanging question I'd ever come up with if given enough time. And when it's "research" stuff like this, I even try to keep a few notes as a "to-do" for later. My hard drives are strewn with hundreds of these little (and not so little) textfiles :)

    Important to note: those URLS in the 2021 search results did NOT exist when I started looking in 2013. So when you're doing searches like this, try to keep notes on the important-looking URLs in your search results, you may be able to expand on them later!
