Gamma Correction Adjustment: Adjust the monitor's
gamma correction for optimal brightness with the red,
green and blue slider bars.
When these sliders are changed the gamma correction table
modifies each pixel's color value.
The brightness produced at the face of the display is
proportional to the input voltage raised to the power
gamma. This nonlinearity must be compensated to achieve
correct reproduction of the image's brightness. The effect of
display gamma is to darken the midtones relative to the
dark and light regions. The gamma correction adjustment
affects the entire screen display. The possible setting range
is 0.3 - 4.0. The default setting is 1.0.
With Link sliders selected, the three sliders move
together as you drag any individual slider. With the check
box unchecked, you can adjust colors individually by
dragging the applicable slider.
Click the >1< button for each color to set the gamma
correction to the default value of 1.0.

Configuration
The configuration default settings typically require modification
only for the following:
• diagnostic purposes
• fine-tuning a specific application/system configuration
• specific settings recommended by your hardware or software
documentation
• tuning your application/system environment for best
performance and memory usage
Activating a configuration profile
For some of the most popular applications the optimal
configuration profile is factory-set by default. Select the
application from the list in the Configuration Profiles
section. This will add necessary Windows registry settings.
Click Apply and, if prompted, restart Windows.
If you experience problems with your application, or if you
want to try to optimize the performance of your system on
specific applications, you may modify the configuration
settings.
Using Your FireGL Card
37
Adding a new application profile
Click the Add button in the Configuration Profiles section
and enter the new application for which you want to set the
configuration parameters.
Modifying the configuration parameters
To change the configuration settings of a specific application,
for example, CATIA, select the application from the list in the
Configuration Profiles section and click the Modify button.
To remove the selected configuration profile completely, click
Delete.
Note: You cannot delete the factory-set configuration profiles.
38
Using Your FireGL Card
If you add or modify a configuration profile, select or clear the
checkboxes in the Settings section according to your
requirements.
Default Settings
Enable 8-Bit double-buffered Overlay Planes
Use 8 bits of each 32-bit frame buffer pixel as double-buffered
overlay planes.
Force copy swap
Force blit copy during double-buffer swap from back to front
buffer.
Wait for vertical retrace
Buffer swap 'synched' to the refresh rate of the monitor.
Enabling will lower the frame rate but reduce visual artifacts
such as tearing. Disabling allows your application to run at the
highest possible frame rate, regardless of the monitor’s refresh
rate, which is typically less than the frame rate at which the
application will run.
Enable OpenGL Hardware acceleration
Always enable this setting for hardware acceleration of your
OpenGL application. Disable this setting only if you experience
serious rendering problems. Disabling this setting significantly
reduces the OpenGL performance.
Click the Apply or OK button to enable your Configuration
settings.
Using Your FireGL Card
39
Setting Advanced Functions
Switching to Advanced Settings
Select Display Properties > Settings > Advanced >
Advanced Settings.
SMOOTHVISION™
SMOOTHVISION improves image quality by removing jagged
edges (Anti-Aliasing) from 3D images, resulting in smoother,
more natural looking objects.
Anti-aliasing:
Application Preference: This gives OpenGL/Direct 3D
applications the ability to enable anti-aliasing. If an application
does not specify an anti-aliasing-setting, anti-aliasing is
disabled. This option will result in high quality images, with a
negligible reduction in the application’s performance.
40
Using Your FireGL Card
Always on: You can apply anti-aliasing using different sample
patterns and sample points such as 2X or 4X. Moving the slider
to the right increases sampling to provide the most realistic 3D
image, at the cost of some 3D performance.
Note: The Always on setting overrides the applications' antialiasing setting.
Reduce DVI frequency on high-resolution displays
Resolves display corruption or no image at high resolutions for example, 1280x1024 at 75Hz - using a digital DVI display.
This setting has no effect when using a DVI-to-VGA adapter.
Alternate DVI operational mode
Use this option if you are experiencing display corruption on
your DVI flat panel monitor.
Enable Quad Buffer Stereo
Select this option to operate stereo glasses. Also, set the refresh
rate to 120 Hz via the Settings tab.
Default
This button allows you to reset the Advanced Settings to the
default values.

Checking for
address and
interrupt
conflicts
•
Resolving
Interrupt
Conflicts
To support the special graphics processor on the FireGL
card the system BIOS should automatically assign a
system interrupt to the AGP slot where the card is
installed. However, there may be problems if your
graphics card does not receive an interrupt or a system
interrupt is used for more than one device. In case of
problems check the system configuration utility of your
operating system for the interrupt assignments.
The card is not
performing
optimally?
Check the Information tab of the Display Properties.
The Transfer Mode information must be AGP.
•
It is necessary to ensure that the I/O and memory
addresses reserved for the graphics board are not
used by other hardware devices.
The integrated on-board VGA controller of your
FireGL card uses the following addresses (hex):
I/O Address:
Standard VGA I/O: 3B0-3DF
Memory Addresses:
Video RAM: A000-BFFF
Video ROM: C000-C7FF
Note: You cannot change the addresses of your
FireGL card. In case of an address conflict, try to
modify the I/O address of the add-on card that causes
the conflict.
The Transfer Mode is not AGP? (for example, PCI)
• Install the latest chipset driver for the AGP chipset on
your motherboard.
• Contact your supplier or motherboard manufacturer
for further information.
