Review Zone heeft een vette graphics chip comparison in elkaar geknutseld. Besproken worden de 3dfx Voodoo 3, nVIDIA TNT2/TNT2 Ultra, Matrox G400/G400 MAX, ATI Rage 128 Pro, S3 Savage4 GT/Pro, NEC/Videologic PowerVR2 en 3D Labs Permedia 3.
Over de V3 en TNT2 hebben we de laatste tijd al genoeg gehoord denk ik. Daarom hier een stukkie over de G400/Max:
When they announced the G400, it seemed as if it was going to fill the same place in the new generation lineup that the G200 held in the previous one. Now, this is not a bad thing at all. There is definitely a need for graphic cards with good performance but outstanding image quality. But Matrox have decided that they want to hit the top end of the performance spectrum as well. For this, they announced the G400 MAX. This is quite a product. With the fillrate matching a Voodoo 3 3000 or a TNT2 clocked at 166MHz, this card definitely no slouch. The only thing to worry about is that its triangle throughput is not as high as its competition. How and where this will affect the MAX's performance is to be seen but it may not be the best choice for CAD type work, which requires a lot of triangles to be moved around. Having said this, it would also be a very tempting card to use in this type of situation because of Matrox's DualHead technology which allows the single card to support independent displays on two display devices. And these don't have to be matched. You could, for example, use a TV or flat panel with a monitor.
