Quake III Arena Benchmarks (timedemo 1, high detail)

Quake III Arena, 800 x 600
Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce 2 GTS, 16 bit
56,6 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce 2 GTS, 32 bit
56,2 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce 1 DDR, 16 bit
52,6 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce 1 DDR, 32 bit
52,3 fps
Viper 770 (TNT2), 16 bit
40,0 fps
Viper 770 (TNT2), 32 bit
33,0 fps
In 800x600, my Celeron is obviously slowing down things... However, the improved T&L engine seems to kick in and gives us 4 additional frames per second. One thing is clear: Even with the Transform & Lightning of the GeForce, about 60 frames is the end of the line for my Celeron... :-(
Quake III Arena, 1024 x 768
Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce 2 GTS, 16 bit
56,1 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce 2 GTS, 32 bit
54,3 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics DDR, 16 bit
52,6 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics DDR, 32 bit
46,5 fps
Viper 770 (TNT2), 16 bit
35,7 fps
Viper 770 (TNT2), 32 bit
24,5 fps
At 1024x768 32 bit, fillrate starts to be the bottleneck again. Despite my slow computer, the benchmarks show how much faster the GeForce 2 really is when compared with the 32 bit results of the GeForce 1.
Quake III Arena, 1280 x 1024
Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce 2 GTS, 16 bit
54,6 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce 2 GTS, 32 bit
41,9 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics DDR, 16 bit
46,9 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics DDR, 32 bit
30,1 fps
Viper 770 (TNT2), 16 bit
23,1 fps
Viper 770 (TNT2), 32 bit
13,9 fps
In 1280x1024, the load on the GeForce 2 finally reaches the point that my Celeron isn't sloing down things anymore. That gives us the opportunity to take a look at the performance loss from 16 bit to 32 bit on both the old and the new GeForce at this resolution. GeForce 1: 36% GeForce 2: 23% So, as you see, much less performance loss with the GeForce 2.
Quake III Arena, 1600 x 1200
Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce 2 GTS, 16 bit
48,1 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce 2 GTS, 32 bit
29,2 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics DDR, 16 bit
35,0 fps
Outrageous 3D Graphics DDR, 32 bit
22,9 fps
Viper 770 (TNT2), 16 bit
14,8 fps
Viper 770 (TNT2), 32 bit
6,1 fps
At 1600 x1200, it's quite interesting to compare the framerates of the TNT2, the GeForce 1 and the GeForce 2. While performance was doubled from the TNT2 to the GeForce 1, it's "only" one quarter more performance from Geforce 1 to GeForce 2. It's obvious that the GeForce 2 is just the spring update of the GeForce 1.
