Final Fantasy XI Performance
While most of the point of the game was unknown to us, since we just had a self-running bench mark demo, at the very least it looks really great. Especially interesting are the waterfall effects on the splash screen at the beginning. In this case, textures and blending of the landscapes won out over particle and special effects, but it doesn't mean they weren't nice.
We do see some performance gain here, but this benchmark is very CPU, GPU, and AGP bus limited, so good luck to all the brave souls who venture into the vast Final Fantasy XI Online world.

Verdant - Wednesday, April 14, 2004 - linklooks awesome congrats to nvidia on raising the bar!
personally i don't game very much, and the only reason my Geforce2 was replaced was for the dual-heads of the Radeon 9000
but as an enthusiast, any leaps make me excited :p
can't want to see ATIs new cards

But still quite boost in performance.

gordon151 - Wednesday, April 14, 2004 - linkDamn, two independant cable lines and a 480W PSU. Good thing it kills in performance, but still too pricey for me. Bring on the 6800XT for us broke people :P.

Hope it doesnt cost $500.
