Quake III Arena NV15.dm3 - Pentium III 1GHz

At 640x480 one can really see the difference that T&L makes. The non-T&L video card tested, the Voodoo5 5500, shows a drastic performance drop compared to the other cards.

We see that at 800x600, the Radeon's Charisma engine is able to keep up with NVIDIA's T&L engine. Note that performance is not poor at 16-bit color, as we saw in the past.

When at 1024x768x16, the Radeon performs just behind the GeForce 2 GTS's T&L. At 32-bit color, the Radeon's T&L engine actually outperforms the GeForce 2 GTS's engine, even in NVIDIA's own level.
