Re: Best GPU for an Athlon MP (WinXP)

No what it implies is that the Athlon XP 3000 couldn't drive a 6800GT Since you benefitted from the 6800GT the implication is the opposite. No its really not, I'm not sure what your missing here, my 6800GT preformed no better than a 6600GT, if i wanted it faster I would have needed a faster cpu Oh, …

Re: Best GPU for an Athlon MP (WinXP)

no if my FPS with a 6800GT and an Athlon XP3000 is the same as my buddy with an Athlon 64 and a 6600GT then it means the AXP can't drive the 6800GT, which isn't really suprising, the Athlon XP ran out of gas around mid 2003, the 2004 era cards where for A64/Pentium 4 HT which operated on a totally …

Re: Best GPU for an Athlon MP (WinXP)

The best you're going to do considering you're limited by AGP and Nvidia is a 6800 GT/Ultra. Personally I wouldn't pay the premium of an Ultra considering a GT is so close in performance. The last few 6800 GTs I saw sell on ebay went for $70-$80 USD. Not sure if that's a price you're willing to pay …

Re: History of PowerVR graphics cards

Any hints on what the table could be? I publish my results at vintage3d.org. I also paid close attention to your test of these three cards, but I felt that the test results were contradictory. Even if you say that PCX2 is about 10% faster than PCX1, the test results show that PCX2 still lags behind …

Re: What systems does the R7000 have suitability in?

I would not dwell on the low clocks much, if somebody used the chip in 2005, 3d performance is irrelevant to them. First Radeon did not support asynchronous clocks, AFAIK this holds true for RV100 as well. What a conundrum, I don't see a reason for different memory ceiling. Maybe the clocking …

Re: What systems does the R7000 have suitability in?

I was surprised to discover that card with DVI and more memory is clocked quite a bit slower, which yields 10 fps less in GLQuake. I see on wiki that RV100 is nominally 183 MHz. I'm guessing that these card are clocked slower to be passive. If I add a small fan, do you think they both could do 190 …
