Needless to say that we would be more than interest by your result using
the "VTK simple sphere benchmark", especially if you could run the bench on
the *same* hardware (but different OS).
Nigel N. send us today the first GeForce 2 results. Pretty impressive,
around 640 kpolys/s normal, 1300 kpolys/s stripped, 476 kpolys/s textured
(he was using a Dual PIII at 733 though). It's not so far from my own (good
old) Oxygen GMX 2000 on my Ahtlon 800, but the GeForce is definitely
cheaper, and has less memory (and probably its T&L engine won't handle ten
thousands of polygon as well as the 2 MX and the GX on the Oxygen). I'll
soon test the GeForce2 on a "real-word" problem evolving 250 kpolys (which
runs OK on my Ogyxen at home, and my SGI Visual 320 at lab). We'll see if
it survives :)
John A. also send us today results related to the infamous Wildcat 4110 Pro
: gee, it's fast ! (1870 kpolys/s normal, 2500 stripped, 1600 textured). He
told that it sold around $2000-$3000 ?
