HWRoundup So, the GeForce3 est arrivé, but where are the benchmarks? Well, Nvidia doesn't seem to have sent out many samples, and the question of what to test it on is also an interesting one.

Kyle over at [H]ardOCP reckons the situation is akin to trying to compare a dragster car with an Indy racing car.

Quoth he: "The dragster is faster, but put it on a track it is not meant to run on and it is not going to shine or show off its features. The GeForce3 is not made to run DX7 applications as its strong point. Sure it will do it, but Quake3 benchmarks can just be so fast with all the goodies turned on."

However, even having said that, there are a couple of previews and articles out there about it so have a peek at the following.

The possible benchmarks we spoke of in the headline are of the following four cards: the ASUS AGP-V8200, the ASUS AGP-V8200 Deluxe, the Leadtek WinFast GeForce3 and the Gigabyte GA-GF3000D. We can't vouch for its accuracy, but for those who want to know the info is here.

Dr Tom writes at some length here about it. Now bear in mind that there are no benchmarks, yet the article is 35 pages long.

Anandtech has also run a piece about it, and [H]ardOCP spouts forth here.

As for benchmarks, there is one site that reckons it's had a couple of cards to look at. We can't vouch for its accuracy, but for those who want to know the info is here.

On a personal note, while I have your attention, this is my last roundup at The Reg. Its been fun but I'm off to pastures new. I leave the section in the responsible hands of...umm... well, I'm sure they'll get someone nice to take care of it. ;-)®
