Full Review NVIDIA's new GeForce256 'GPU'

The Benchmark Results - Expendable Demo 1600x1200

1600x1200 is again good for GeForce to show its fill rate advantage, but what do you say about G400 MAX and GeForce w/SDR? These results show again that GeForce with the slower single data rate memory is castrated and that the memory interface of G400 is rather respectable.

I'd say that this is the one benchmark where GeForce looks worst, since even GeForce w/DDR is just about a tiny bit faster than G400 MAX and Rage Fury Pro is faster than GeForce w/SDR!!! However, let me not forget to tell you that due to some memory mapping issue GeForce can't run Expendable at 1600x1200x32 with triple buffer enabled, it runs out of memory. Thus I disabled triple-buffering for this test run.
