SOLANO Preview - Once Intel Makes Sense ...

3D Gaming Performance - Quake 3 Arena

I was a tad bit disappointed with Solano's score here, but let's not forget that this is 'A1'-stepping! Solano was not quite able to surpass VIA's Apollo Pro 133A, but it's at least on-par with i840. Again, i820 doesn't look too good at all even against this beta- i815!

3D Gaming Performance - Quake 2

Scoring second place in Quake2 is certainly a commendable performance of the beta-i815. Even i840 can't quite reach Solano and i820 is lagging behind.
