Re: 8 vs 12mb Voodoo 2 performance

I really didn't expect that on this forum, I thought we are all smart people with a passion for old hardware. Collecting has nothing to do with "more than you need". You collect items for collection, not to use them. Some do that with super expensive cars, if they can afford. As for leaving people …

Re: 8 vs 12mb Voodoo 2 performance

Which makes me curious has to how much 8mb SLI and a fast (800mhz +) processor could make up for that. Of course, it' be more practical to just get a V3. But a V3 doesn't have the same full-feeling a nice pair of SLI V2's does! :) I'm not sure what you want, but for me it just doesn't feel right, …

Re: 8 vs 12mb Voodoo 2 performance

It's not hoarding, it's 17 years of collecting (I've started in 2003). Hoarding is when you grab and hold junk (Geforce 4 MX440, Radeon 9200SE, etc). That's what I think. Anyway, back on topic, games from 97 and early 98 will probably run the same on a V2 with 8 mb and on a V2 with 12 mb. Newer …

Re: 8 vs 12mb Voodoo 2 performance

I know most people would ideally pickup a 12mb card anyway, but they just seem to be getting less frequent and more expensive as time goes on. Meanwhile 8mb cards seem to be semi-commonly available, and for a cheaper price t00. Where? Ebay, other site? Or where do you live? In the last years I …

Re: GeForce2 Ti vs. Matrox G400

I love my G400MAX. I got one the day they came out and build a P3-450 slot 1 box back in the day. Id take one over TNT2 anyday, but GForce 256 will kick its butt My point exactly. And G400 < G400 Max. And GF256 << GF2 Ti. That's why I said that comparing those two cards it pointless. It's like …

Re: GeForce2 Ti vs. Matrox G400

Let's try again. Bottom line, the G400 tends to win in image quality, the GeForce2 tends to win in speed, and there are exceptions. I'm not expert in english, it's not my primary language, but if somebody says "tends to win" I understand that it's slighty faster. That's far from 2x-3x difference. …

Re: GeForce2 Ti vs. Matrox G400

Any chance to resurrect videos? Need to compare smth :) Don't bother looking for it. Bottom line, the G400 tends to win in image quality, the GeForce2 tends to win in speed, and there are exceptions. Who made this affirmation was drunk or high. Or he was trolling. Or he has no idea what he's doing. …

Re: Differences between Voodoo2 boards

The image quality difference is 99% from the passthrough cable. But there's quite a few other differences, most Voodoo2 have only tantalum capacitors, but some have a few classic liquid capacitors. Memory modules is another difference, manufacturer and speed vary a lot. Some V2 have heatsinks (on …
