A Speedy Tiler: Kyro II on Hercules' 3D Prophet 4500

Benchmarks With FSAA

For the tests with activated smoothing FSAA (full-scene anti-aliasing), we have limited ourselves to one typical platform. We chose the Pentium 4 1.5 GHz.

Quake 3 Arena

The GeForce2 GTS is only faster than the Kyro II at 16 bit color and a resolution. In all other categories, the Kyro II on the Hercules 3D 4500 is king of the hill.

At a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, the ATI Radeon falls by the wayside, as long as you choose 4X FSAA. While the GeForce2 GTS still has the upper hand at 16 bit, the tables turn at 32 bit.
