    • 3D Labs & Texas Instruments: Permedia 2
      • 230 MHz RAMDAC
      • 24 bit resolutions can be packed to achieve higher refresh rates and less memory usage but slows down graphics operations
      • 145 MHz dot clock in 24 bit packed pixel modes
      • 100 MHz in 32 bit modes
      • 80 million textured 3D pixels per second
      • hardware accelerated rendering functions: z-buffering, gouraud shading, fogging, blending, antialiasing
      • support for color space conversion, chroma keying, XY scaling
    • 25 MHz local PCI bus
    • 8 MB 64 bit wide SGRAM
      screen modes
    • programmable resolutions
    • no support for interlace screen modes
    • 1280×1024×32 non-interlace
    • 1600×1200×24 non-interlace
      notes
    • rev 1.0 boards has only one edge connector for vertical mounting on the CPU board - it cannot be used with CyberStorm PPCs fitted in an A3000 because of the limited space
    • rev 1.1 boards has two edge connectors for horizontal and vertical mounting
    • the CPU board requires a flash ROM update
    • a 10 pin shielded ribbon cable leads to the two external connectors
      • 15 pin DSUB
      • 3 pin mini DIN for use with an optional shutter glasses system (mounted only on rev 1.1 boards)
    • no integrated passthrough option - an external monitor switch is required in order to use an existing scan doubler for the native screen modes
    • no support for draggable screens
    • CyberGraphX 3, 4 drivers
    • supported by Linux
