TnT,Banshee,Voodoo², SLI whats the right card for P2-333@500 Mhz
Which card is the best for my Cpu .
I´ve a SLI 12 MB in my case ( 3364 with 3DMark99 (800x600).
What´s about the Tnt and the Banshee cards.
It´s right that they are fill rated by 350 Mhz.
The real question is "what's the best card?" for any CPU. Anandtech and tomshardware reviews point to the Asus V3400 TNT.
The new RIVA TNT2 chip from nVidia is expected on boards at the end of this quarter.
Now it's a Voodoo2 SLI, because it's the fastest card(only in SLI) at this time.
Or wait for the Voodoo3. 3Dfx says it will be the fastest card available at its release.
I've got a Celeron @460MHz and got two Voodoo2s and I'm very satisvied with the performance. Another reason is that a TNT for example doesn't support the Glide API.
Only 3Dfx supports all of the common APIs.
Also, the Voodoo 3 is not very far off, you might want to wait a bit.
voodoo 2 SLI is the fastes available BUt i would wait for the voodoo 3
Hey people, remember what 3Dfx said to anyone who own SLI (or otherwise wants the BEST 3D graphics)? Wait for the next thing from 3Dfx AFTER Voodoo3. According to educated speculation from www.agn3d.com, the next card from 3Dfx, due later this year (snippet from www.3dnews.net) will have the following:
"1. Rampage is no longer the "code" name of the product.
2. 32 megs will be the base amount of memory
3. It will be able to handle texture sized much larger then anticipated.
4. SLI revisited!
5. Upgradable! (both memory, and TMU's)
6. Prelim benchmarks are well over 100FPS on Q3 at 1600!
As you can see, the announced Voodoo3 is not the way to go for highest performance--it would be "Voodoo3.5" or whatever this thing is called.
or you could wait until next year when something even better appears.
I heard of what Leos talking about it will need Intels new chip set due out around June. It will be an AGP card and take advantage of the Intel AGP 4x in the new chip set.
