SystemLogic heeft een review van de Permedia3 Create! 32MB op hun site gekwakt. Best wel een zware review, 14 pagina's. We weten al van deze kaart dat-ie voor gamers niet zo geschikt is, maar meer voor de professionele aplicaties.
Well, the question has been answered. The Permedia3 Create! does not have the stuff to compete with cards like the TNT2 and Voodoo3. At least not in speed...Permedia3 Create! has comparable image quality to the G400, which can make any game look fabulous. Don't expect any games to be played at high resolutions, even though the card does support it. If you are looking for a video card which will let you play games, as well as run proffesional applications, then this may be your top choice. Considering it is a pre-workstation card with a hefty 32MB of on-board RAM, and the 256MB virtual texture engine, then you may want this more than a card sporting the TNT2 or Voodoo3 chip. It doesn't work for the hardcore gamer, but here is a quote from 3Dlabs: "Permedia3 Create! has the power you need to work fast all day and play hard all night." This shows that it is something for the proffesional user that would like to play some games on the side. I have to commend the card on its image quality as you can see the Quake3 Screenshots, but also their drivers and use of OpenGL is fantastic. All in all I was farely dissapointed in the speed the card showed, but like I said, if you are not a hardcore gamer, but also use professional applications, definitly look into this card.
