Wrapper Performance on Lower End Video Cards

RIVA 128ZX Wrapper Performance @ GU  

  Wrapper Performance on Lower End Video Cards : RIVA 128ZX

XGL200 v0.03a

On the RIVA 128ZX, Mario performed a bit better, getting 14.5 fps in the demo spot. WaveRace made 7.5 fps, but unfortunately still had the sky texture problem.


Jumping off the Chopper

MGlide 1.246f

MGlide made a mere 11 fps in Mario, and 5 fps in WaveRace.  Once again, the sky problem occurred.  What more can I say?  Hopefully the next version will improve, as version 1.246f was largely optimized for the Intel i740 chipset and thus has trouble on some other cards.
