Summary
  • Semiconductor manufacturers displayed several new graphics chip sets at the Siggraph show, indicating the move away from software and toward silicon-based graphics enhancements. Intel upgraded its 82786 graphics coprocessor to include expanded bit block transfer with transparency and proportional spacing, clipped bit-blts and character bits, a line-without-end-point command, and a version register. National Semiconductor expanded its architecture with enhanced clocks and a video RAM controller: the DP8512 video clock generator and DP8514 crystal clock generator create a multi-board clock system allowing several memory boards and color planes in a graphics system. Fairchild Semiconductor introduced its graphics system architecture using multi-cellular frame buffers and allowing an upward growth path to full three-dimensional implementation.
