Full Review NVIDIA's new GeForce256 'GPU'

The Benchmark Results - Quake 3 Test 640x480

I guess I don't have much to say for the introduction of Quake3. This OpenGL-based game can bring a graphics card to its knees once you select 'high quality' mode. The complexity in terms of polygon counts is probably the highest amongst those gaming benchmarks.

GeForce is ahead of the competition, but not exactly by much at this low resolution. G400 suffers from its bad OpenGL-implementation, which is a shame for that chip really. Voodoo3 proves again that it's 'the master of the low resolutions'.

High quality is what GeForce likes, its frame rate stays untouched where it was at 'normal quality'.
