Ok I accept it, the RIVA TNT2 would rather be classified as a hardware decelerator :D

I think Intel has done some 3D vid cards that can run Q3 admirably. Not just a simple 2D vid card

Should have had the Radeon 8500 in the list. Since its not there I put my vote with the Radeon 9000 since they are of the same family.

and soon (i hope) i can get to the CeBIT and see the r350, the gfFX, and all the stuff.. and then i hope i can get a 9900pro, or so.. the r350 simply.. and give my older one to a friend, who still runs a funny voodoo:D poor boy:D

I am sorry for not having put a 9700 Pro. I guess it just slipped my mind.
I thought that it would be ok if all the 9700 series would be fitting into one category. If that were to be the case then GeForce 2 Pro, MX have lotsa differences (RAM and no. of supported Channels) I guess the length of the list would be enormous.
I would not do the same mistake again. sSorry :confused: :confused:

Radeon Pro 9900 as of nw is just a hype. Its supposed to “crush” GeForce FX (whever it comes out as a commercial prod.) I know of serious probs with GeForce FX. nVidia for the first time, is in second place.
All the word that’s floating around is - its the neXt best thing… when is not something anyone would answer

I too have an R9700Pro and I think that it was worth the money spent.
