Product Brief 

Raptor 2000 


2048 x 2048 Color Video Graphics Adapter 



The Tech Source Raptor 2000 ultra-high 
resolution graphics accelerator combines 
in a single slot PCI card a comprehensive 
array of high-end display subsystem fea-
tures that formerly required a box level 
solution. Tech Source's high speed video 
switching circuitry permits the Raptor 
2000 to redefine the meaning of world 
class resolution and functionality. The 
Raptor 2000 is designed for use in ultra 
high resolution, high performance, color 
graphics applications such as Air Traffic 
Management and Vessel Control. It's 
high level of integration achieves extreme 
flexibility over a wide range of functions.  

An advanced Application Specific Inte-
grated Circuit designed by Tech Source 
engineers provides the ability to display 
1024 independent dynamic colors at the 
same time. That’s four times the number 
of colors available in traditional graphics 
systems. Specialized frame buffer layering 
hardware allows for complete control of 

24 independently addressable overlays 
with dynamic priority adjustment. That’s 
12 times more than most advanced un-
derlay/overlay systems. 

The Raptor 2000 offers  two-dimensional 
drawing acceleration for polygons, text 
and windowing operations.  The co-
processor can generate an excess of 
900,000 X Window System characters per 
second providing the ability to manage 
over 2,000 targets/tracks in real time. 

Multiple configuration modes are avail-
able for double buffering and multiple 
overlay buffering support.  True hard-
ware double buffering is supported using 
standard software interfaces such as 
MBX (Multi-buffering extension for X) 
and DBE (Double buffering extension). 
Specialized flash fill hardware performs 
back buffer screen erases in under 100
