GameFan zag dat iedereen een GF2 vs. Voodoo5 5500 artikel maakte en dacht... dah kunnuh wij ohk! En ziedaar. Een 7-pagina's lang artikel met nog eens alle voordelen en nadelen tegenover elkaar gezet. De conclusie mag ook geen verrassing zijn: hardcore fps-lovers nemen een GeForce 2 GTS, beeldbewonderaars snellen vrijdag naar de winkel voor een Voodoo5 5500.
Which card is for you? Well, I think it's pretty clear that those hard-core Quakers who want the ultimate in frame-rate will find their destiny in a GeForce 2 GTS; people who spend all day deathmatching competitively usually aren't the types to stop and say, "Wow, this map is pretty." In fact, many of them turn textures off completely, focusing on the pure, uninterrupted fury of Quake-style deathmatches for their stimuli. These people--if you can equate them as people--will settle for nothing other than the pure speed king of Quake, and that title belongs to the GTS.
The rest of us gamers don't have such a clear choice, however. Those looking for the ultimate in image quality will probably want a Voodoo 5 5500; its 4x FSAA has no competition. NVIDIA's FSAA comes close to the Voodoo 5's 2x FSAA, but in my opinion, the Voodoo 5 still wins. The GTS is limited in that regard, as well; it has some problems in performance and with D3D FSAA, and the Voodoo 5 does not. I have no doubt that NVIDIA will improve performance and compatibility with future drivers; it's never been content to be second best. Right now, however, the Voodoo 5 wins the FSAA war. The addition of T & L and per-pixel shading in future games may totter quality comparisons in the months to come, but for right now, 3dfx edges ahead.
