3D Accelerator Review Step One - 3D Performance, the Real Deal

Image Quality Diamond Fire GL 1000 Pro

The Fire GL 1000 Pro is producing an impressively good image quality. If you compare it to the reference picture below, you'll only see that the fog produced by the Fire GL 1000 Pro is less transparent and that the reflexions on the water are looking less realistic. The 3DLabs Permedia 2 chip that's used here runs also only under Direct3D, not under a special engine. Turok does definitely look well on the Fire GL 1000 Pro.

Reference Picture

The above is the ideal picture, produced by a 3Dfx Voodoo card under Glide engine.
