    Radeon and Voodoo

    Anyone know how the Voodoo4 and the Radeon 32ddr compare? I'm buying a new card, and narrowed it down to these two, and I know the V4 doesn't do as well as the Radeon, but it is cheaper so I'm wondering how much worse it is, exactly. And since I'm trying to spend as little as possible, wondering if I should just go with the cheaper one.

    Let's summarise it briefly: the Radeon is several times faster, the EMBM will make it look much better, the hardware assisted DVD playback is going to woop on V4, it runs at a faster frequency, and the DirectX8.0 hardware will leave you much happier. Don't forget that 3DFX is now owned by NVIDIA and all driver support will be nill as of March 2001.

    It's like comparing apples to oranges. The Radeon wins hands down.

    Yes, there are plenty of negative things to say. Being positive people, however, we just don't want to lecture you on them.

    I was just trying to justify buying a cheaper card But I did order the Radeon last night, so that should end this topic.
