3dfx, Matrox and Nvidia take on the KryoTech Cool Athlon 800 MHz

3D Game Benchmark Results - Quake 3 Arena Test V1.08 16Bit

In this test I selected Normal settings and only changed the resolution. The "Normal" setting defaults to modest graphics settings including 16Bit color. The TNT2 holds the lead across each of the tested resolutions while the G400MAX and Voodoo3 run a close race at 1024x768x16 and 1600x1200x16. The G400MAX hasn't a chance at 640x480x16 with its 63.3FPS score, trailing its closest competitor at some 28FPS. However, 63.3FPS is most definitely playable!

3D Game Benchmark Results - Quake 3 Arena Test V1.08 32 Bit

In this test I selected High Quality settings and only changed the resolution. The "High Quality" setting defaults to more aggressive graphics settings including 32Bit color. At 1024x768x32 the TNT2 is almost 6FPS faster than the G400MAX. At 1600x1200x32 the G400MAX score climbs closer to the TNT2. Again, at 640x480 the G400MAX is left in the dust even in 32Bit mode! The Voodoo3 doesn't support 32bit color hence the 0.0 FPS scores.
