Ah, SIS boards. Then it's correct probably, they're slower than Intel.

Ok i will upgrade to a FIC PT-2007 with Pentium 233Mhz and 64MB SD-RAM soon. Will see how this boost the Ark2000PV

What is the reason for Quake running on PIII 933 to produce less FPS even at 640x480?

What is best way to get Quake to have better frame rate, not the hard ware listed here for "PCI graphics round up - dos"?

Cheers,

quake just being quake, cpu based 3d rendering hit a wall. there was a reason why GLquake was developed afterwards

When you get to GF4 and GF5, DOS performance starts to go down.

do you have some benchmarks for this? I thought all nvidia cards until geforce fx (5xxx) starting with riva128 shared the same 2d core.
I remember I DOS-benchmarked my K6-3 with a matrox mystique, riva 128, tnt2 ultra and gf3-500 against a gf4 4600, and the gf4 was the fastest in that setup

great comparison btw., always appreciated

PC#1: K6-III+ 400 | 512MB | Geforce4 | Voodoo1 | SB Live | AWE64 | GUS PNP Pro
PC#2: 486DX2-66 | 64MB | Riva128 | AWE64 | GUS PNP | PAS16
PC#3: 386DX-40 | 32MB | CL-GD5434 | SB Pro | GUS MAX | PAS16

I'll have to dig them up, I posted this about 5 years ago. 😀 They should be in a spreadsheet somewhere. I'll see if I can find anything and reply back.

The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.

When I benchmarked my PCI cards, my FX5200 didn't fare well.

the 5200 was a disaster anyway, when coming from a gf4 it was a downgrade

So the GF4 I benched was an MX4000. That was the only GF4 I had during these tests, so I have no idea how a regular one would fare.
