bij PGR hebben ze eens gekeken naar de Oxygen VX1 en GVX1 professionele workstation OpenGL videokaarten van 3DLabs (niet interessant voor gamers dus). Hieronder een hap uit de review.
At SIGGRAPH'99 I had a chance to watch quite a few professionals to do just that and the majority were very impressed. The GVX1 seemed to win over most of the crowd with it's onboard geometry and lighting acceleration but many were taken back by the VX1's performance. They found it hard to believe that a card that comes in around $200USD could run applications as well as the GVX1 (at a reduced speed of course). But this shouldn't surprise anyone since both card share the same rasterizer.
There's the "thing". The VX1 and GVX1 are basically the same board. In day-to-day use, the GVX1 performed just like the VX1. Whether I was playing a Direct3D game in Windows 98, working on a spread sheet in Excel, or surfing the web, I noticed no difference between them. The only time I noticed any difference is when it came to large models where the addition of the Gamma G1 made life with the GVX1 a very pleasant experience. Of course don't let the lack of a G1 keep you from checking out the VX1. The VX1 can hold its own when you deal mainly with low to medium polygon models.
In conclusion, I highly recommend the Oxygen VX1 to students or enthusiasts on a budget who are looking for a professional solution with great OpenGL support. If money is not a big concern or you're constantly working with large models (wireframe or polygon) than you might want to have a look at the Oxygen GVX1 or the GVX210.
