Full Review NVIDIA's new GeForce256 'GPU'

The Benchmark Results - Expendable Demo 1024x768

At 1024x768 GeForce is leading, but not by a remarkable amount. I won't moan too much though, because GeForce scores at least over 60 fps.

At 32-bit color the story looks better, at least for the GeForce board with DDR-RAM. Please note that the 'Canadians', G400 and Rage Fury Pro take advantage of their ability to only use 16-bit deep Z-buffer at 32-bit color. NVIDIA's chips can't and don't do that. They have to render with 32-bit deep Z-buffer, which costs memory bandwidth, as you can see by the rather bad result of the GeForce w/SDR.
