Linux Vs. Windows 2000 - Quake 3 Arena, Continued
At 640x480x16 with Detonator 3 there's hardly any difference to the results we've seen above. The Linux-results are slightly lower than the Win2k-results.
We can see a difference here. The Linux-scores with Detonator 3 at 1024x768x16-bit color are a lot closer to the Win2k-scores than what we saw with Detonator 2. Especially the GeForce 2 GTS is able to catch up considerably.
The story at 1600x1200x32-bit color with Detonator 3 looks similar to the Detonator 2 results, although the overall scores improved under both operating systems. Still the Linux-driver suffers from the missing page-flip ability, so Windows 2000 is significantly ahead.
