"As a leading force in the workstation graphics industry, 3Dlabs certifies
the top software applications, so our customers can create outstanding
animations and design CAD models with their favorite applications," said Hock
Leow, president of 3Dlabs. "Wildcat Realizm 800 delivers the raw power of two
Visual Processing Units for unprecedented speed and performance."

"3Dlabs has consistently supported the industry’s most innovative
initiatives, including AMD’s leadership in pervasive 64-bit computing," said Pat
Patla, director, server/workstation marketing, Microprocessor Business Unit,
Computation Products Group of AMD. "Our customers work with compute-intensive
applications that greatly benefit from the incredibly powerful AMD Opteron(TM)
processor with Direct Connect Architecture. We are working with 3Dlabs, along
with the growing AMD64 software ecosystem, to make sure our customers can fully
tap 64-bit computing."

Widespread ISV Support for Wildcat Realizm 800

"Not only did the 3Dlabs Wildcat Realizm 800 graphics accelerator breeze through
our certification tests, the performance was very impressive," said Ron
Werkmeister, manager of systems and acceptance testing at ANSYS, Inc. "We
achieved record-breaking speeds of over 57 million polygons a second. Needless
to say, we were extremely impressed."

"Equipped with dual VPUs, the Wildcat Realizm 800 flew through the MicroStation
certification process," said Tom Anderson, vice president of product management
at Bentley. "Wildcat Realizm products continue to deliver impressive graphics
performance."

"The performance numbers that the dual VPU-based Wildcat Realizm 800 achieves
are simply astounding," said Michael Campbell, vice president of product
management at PTC. "PTC’s Pro/ENGINEER customers will see great performance
improvements in interactive graphics mode."

"Wildcat Realizm 800 enables OneSpace Designer customers to create incredibly
realistic CAD models while meeting tight production deadlines," said Claus Brod,
designer and hardware platform manager at CoCreate. "OneSpace Designer customers
need the stamina and precision that Wildcat Realizm graphics accelerators
provide."

"With its powerful dual-VPU architecture and two, dual-link DVI-I connectors,
Wildcat Realizm 800 provides SOFTIMAGE|XSI 4.0 artists the best way to
experience content creation on two high-resolution monitors," said Gareth
Morgan, senior product manager at Softimage Co., a subsidiary of Avid
Technology, Inc. "Wildcat Realizm 800’s flexible features combined with its
impressive power, deliver dramatically increased productivity for each
SOFTIMAGE|XSI-based project."

"The Wildcat Realizm 800’s fully programmable technology and powerful dual-VPU
architecture run SolidWorks 2005 extremely well," said Brian Houle, solution
partner program manager at SolidWorks Corporation. "This is a great solution for
high-end CAD projects that call for layers of OpenGL® 2.0 shaders and superb
graphics performance."
