Mister Freeze schrijft dat Kyle van HardOCP een vergelijking tussen de GeForce2 en Voodoo5 5500 (alweer een...) heeft gemaakt, hij is wat alternatief bezig geweest en heeft een hele stapel zinloze grafieken gemaakt om het verschil tussen 26.6 en 25.9 frames per seconde goed duidelijk te maken...:
As we always do, we are gonna shoot straight with you. We are 3dfx fans, as well as nVidia fans (en dan toch vooral van 3dfx...), and I saw 3dfx becoming the serious underdog in the 3D wars. I already had it in my mind that the GeForce2 would summarily hand 3dfx their own ass till the next round of silicon hit the shelves in 6 to 12 months from now.
3dfx has blown me for a loop in that they have a card in the Voodoo 5 that will keep up with the GeForce2. My hat is off to BOTH companies here in the fact that both of them have brought some really nice products with muscle to market.
I think where we saw the 3dfx Voodoo5 get skunked in the lower resolution benchmarks is a driver issue and not a horsepower issue. I would guess that we see some more driver sets out of 3dfx before the summer is up that bring the performance level up 15 to 25%. I have even heard of third parties developing drivers for the Voodoo family of cards. So there is no telling what we might see.
