Hete Hardware heeft wat benchmarks gemaakt van hun met nieuwe drivers uitgeruste Voodoo5 5500. Ze hebben de resultaten van de vorige drivers jammer genoeg niet in hetzelfde grafiekje gezet, maar kijkend naar hun oude preview kan je zien dat er bij elke resolutie zo'n 3-6 frames per seconde bij komen :
First let's look at the performance of our new drivers and prerelease board, across various resolutions with and without FSAA. We are told that our specific card will be representative of the exact same product you will receive if you buy a card in the coming weeks via the retail channel. Also, the drivers we are testing here are the "Gold" Release Version that will be packed in with the V5-5500 retail product. Again, our results should be exactly what you can expect from the retail boxed product.
[...] Well folks, we have seen it all now. From pre-release to final release product, the Voodoo5-5500 has impressed us an exceptional 3D Graphics Accelerator. It has great performance and new features that improve image quality and over all experience, dramatically. In the weeks and months ahead with new driver releases, we are very optimistic that performance still has room for improvement over what we feel is already quite good. It's time to rate the Voodoo5 since it is now officially ready for prime time. It should be on retail store shelves very soon, we are told.
