V3 vs TNT2
Whats the deal with these new boards? Which one is faster? Is it stupid to buy just a regular TNT now? how much of a difference in games will these cards make?
Thanks for all help!
V3 definetly, but if you really want the top-of-the line gaming/video card you should go for the ATI RAGE FURY 128 32mb AGP
Wait next month and get a TNT2-32mb
voodoo3 don't even hv full agp support,it's only "like" a pci card in a agp slot....Get a TNT2....
If u can't wait then get a TNT now,,thay will get cheap as TNT2 shipping date arrive
Let's be objective here: Voodoo3 is in general the fastest and cheapest (don't forget though, you have the Voodoo3 2000 for $105, the 3000 for $140, and the 3500 for $210, and they have diff price/speed). Even the V3 2000 should be much faster than the Fury 128 IN 16-BIT COLOR; at least the V3 3500 (if not the 3000) should be faster than the TNT2. HOWEVER, it only has 16MB SDRAM and cannot do 32-bit color (which the Fury, for example, does without noticeable speed loss). Reviewers indicate that the Voodoo3 has the ultimate image quality for 16-bit (much better than Voodoo2) -- this means that all current games will look great, but Quake3 will look better on the TNT2 (when does that come out?) So the V3 has the price/speed advantage, but the TNT2 will have the image quality/memory advantage. I'd personally vouch for the higher frame rates, but we have to consider both sides of the picture (you may have different preferences). Plus, no one knows for sure how fast the TNT2 really will be (what if it'll be as fast as V3?), and when it will actually come out. For those who really want to wait, 3Dfx say they have a high-tech ace up their sleeve for 2nd half '99
