Okay this post is for everyone with graphics card that wants us to see how it performs. I give my regards to tekken2 for being yelled at by a lot of people, and the unfortunate lack of TNT2 posts in his folder. Enough yelling and screaming, if there is one complaint ANYMORE about what is better and what is worse in this post, I'll get the moderator in here to straigten things out. I want everyone to post what kind of scores they get with different games with their cards. Especially anyone with a new card such as TNT2 Ultra, Permedia3 when it comes out, and the g400 and all the rest, I have some friends getting together to bench a lot of games, cause we have about all the ones that make for good benching, plus we have many different cards, v2's, v3's, TNT, ati rage, viper 330, etc. So post em up and let us see whats up with your card. AND ABSOLUTELY NO COMPLAINING!!! GOT IT???

I guess I'll start off with some simple benchmarks that really impressed me.

My Computer
OCed 300A @464
128megs PC100
V3 3000 @183mhz

Quake 2 3.20 no configs

16bit color Demo1 Crusher
1280x960 58.8 37.3
1024x768 85.1 47.3
800x600 109.2 50.7

3DMarkMax 800x600 16bit color 3964 3DMarks

Almost 60fps in 1280x960! that's impressive

Here is a viper racing benchmark:

K6-2 @ 380
128 megs of ram
v3 2000 @ 143
maxtor 10 gig 5400rpm harddrive

48.8 fps in the bench Test

Here is my friend Lavajumpers bench also:

celery 300 @ 472
128 megs of ram
Creative Labs TNT 115/105
Western digital 13 gig harddrive

51 fps in the bench Test

So as you can for one thing the K6-2 and 3dnow with the v3 can make a big difference when it is implimented in a game, cause im only about 2 frames off of an almost 500mhz p2 machine! Pretty good I think

hey guys just got my [email protected]! runs great no crashes or anomilies

here the same benches (but updated) that I posted earlier, you can see the improvement not much but its there

Demo1 1280x960 61.2 crusher 38.3
Demo1 1024x768 87.9 crusher 48.0

3DMarkMax didn't improve at all so no need postin it

good vid, but when i went to 1024x768 it jumped to 53 fps. i didn't know if you saw that or not, so i thought i'd let you know. i might run them again tonight, and if i do a whole slew of other ones to. if not, i might give you a call. later lava ;-j

creativelabs TNT2 ultra. Nothing overclocked, all windows98 and norton systemworks 2.0 programs running. visuals and sound set to best visuals and max sounds.


16bit color setting:

800 x 600 = 78.7fps
1024 x 768 = 67.6

32bit color setting:

800 x 600 = 72.6
1024 x 768 = 51.6

Not bad scores tekken, seems as though 16bit to 32bit on the TNT2 is not that bad of a performance hit. I wonder what you could squeeze out of that baby if it was overclocked? What does Crusher run like in 32bit color? Thanx OC9

GutWrench_51 - you have to download the crusher and massive timedemo files. You can get them from 3fingers quake2 webpage.

Hey what's up people
Here's my system
K6-2 350 OC variously between 400 and 450
MSI 5169 MB + 64M PC100 ram
V3 3000 OC to 183-195 mhz (195 runs clean!)
here's the data at 400 and 183, respectively
Q2 [email protected] 16b 85fps
[email protected] 16b 62fps
[email protected] 16b 41 fps
all demo's run w/low quality sound, and highest texture quality.
Here's the question: even when i turn the resolution way down, like to 512, i only increase the fps to maybe 91 max - anyone have ideas why that might be?
PEACE

Here are some more quake2 benchmarks using crusher, timedemo2, and massive

System P2 450mhz
256megs of PC100 memory
creativelabs TNT2 ultra
all of windows 98 and norton systems works programs running. and best visuals and sound set to max. No overclocking.


16bit color settings

timedemo2 800 x 600 = 74.1 fps
timedemo2 1024 x 768 = 60.4 fps

massive demo 800 x 600 = 62.6 fps
massive demo 1024 x 768 = 55.8 fps

crusher demo 800 x 600 = 47.3 fps
crusher demo 1024 x 768 = 42.2 fps


32bit color settings

timedemo2 800 x 600 = 66.9 fps
timedemo2 1024 x 768 = 49.7 fps

massive demo 800 x 600 = 58.3 fps
massive demo 1024 x 768 = 46.8 fps

crusher demo 800 x 600 = 45.9 fps
crusher demo 1024 x 768 = 39.2 fps

like Overclock9 mentioned before the 16bit and 32bit color settings FPS are kind of close in most of the time demos.

Tekken2 your tnt2 look nice fps when it enable 32 bit and run look nice too.
So can you try overclock and post benchwork result??
I heard blaster tnt2 can use glide ???
Do you ???
Thank

hey tekken, very impressive 32bit scores on crusher seems like only a 5fps drop at the most, same for you Gutwrench (pretty good for a V2). I'm gonna try my V3 on 22bit and see what the fps drop is and we'll compare. I wonder if the CPU in your system was faster it would increase crusher scores, or do you know if it is limited, like would it be better on a 500 or 550mhz system, I know some cards are limited they don't perform any faster no matter how fast the processor is once it reaches a certain speed is 450 it?
I'll try to post some more benches later.

Oh btw did you try 3DMarkMax yet?

Hey Buckeye, great scores for a 400, 3DNow has really proven itself to be a good gaming competitor. What are you using to cool your V3 to get it that high at 195? Have you tried 200?

Strange that crusher handle closer all resoultion.
I will post when 3000 overclock.
Overclock9 system look good nice fps.
Thank
