Ixbt-labs publie un comparatif de cartes graphiques regroupant pas moins de 101 cartes graphiques différentes (oui oui 101 !), de 1999 à aujourd’hui. Le comparatif regroupe les cartes de dernière génération avec des cartes graphiques de plus 5 ans comme l’ATI Rage128, la TNT2 ou encore la Voodoo 4. Ce comparatif permet de également de se rendre compte des progrès formidables qu’ont réussi les constructeurs.
It took us almost a month to carry out all the tests, which results we are presenting to you now. This task has traditionally become annual, but this time we publish the results in October instead of December. We believe that this report will help many users compare certain video cards to each other and choose a correct purchase on the threshold of holidays, if they are planning to buy a 3D accelerator, of course.
We have tested 101 video cards in 14 tests at two resolutions – 800×600 and 1024×768. These resolutions are selected to demonstrate the capacity and potential of old and weak (for these days) accelerators. But some of them (the most powerful) have also been tested with AA (antialiasing) 4x and AF (anisotropic filtering) 16x (or 8x in those cards, where AF is limited to this rate). Quality settings – Quality/High Quality.
