Number Nine Visual Technology Corp is shipping a $700 128-bit graphics board built around its own silicon that can drive even monster displays like Sony Corp’s new GDM-W900 24-inch monitor at high resolution. The Imagine 128-8, with 8Mb of H-video RAM on board, uses the Lexington, Massachusetts company’s own 256-bit video engine plus a dedicated front-end color space converter. The company says it can play MPEG video clips and Video CD movies at 30 frames per second – real time – under NT 4.0 or Windows 95 with resolutions of up to 1600 by 1200 at 16.8m colors. OpenGL under NT 4.0 is 1152 by 870 with 65,000 colors. It ships with optimized display drivers for NT/95 plus Number Nine’s HawkEye ’95 display utilities.
