This was especially unsatisfactory when you consider that the average fps I got in the same position while using my 2D card was 7. But with the Stealth II I saw not only even more wavering to the pattern, but to the tower outlines themselves, until at times the tower appeared to lose much of its shape and identity. All in all, I am sad to say that I cannot give the card an unqualified recommendation off of what I. I tested this last problem on one of the airports sceneries I’d designed myself.

Using skew and ascending into and above the clouds, I saw multimedoa much fluffier cloud textures instead of the 2D undifferentiated blocks. It’s all very well to get 30 instead of 20 fps in non-dense areas – visual imaging the human eye can’t take advantage of anyhow.

Once through the Chicago buildings, fps soared dramatically, at times moving into the 25 – 30 range. Unfortunately, however, it was at this time that a rather annoying feature showed up mulhimedia the ground tile textures were severely banded now, fairly accurate in the near distance, then beyond a rather multimwdia dividing border a band of much blander texture, and finally furthest out beyond another severe dividing line, flat gray to the horizon.

Diamond Multimedia Systems, Inc. Still, this minimum fps continued to be only 10 – 15 percent better better than what I got with the my 2D card, and continued to be a disappointment.

I was pleased to land at Kennedy in 14 – 15 fps all the way, until after I removed the card and returned my 2D card I got a frame rate reading of no less than 2 fps lower with it, and realized that the default Kennedy doesn’t really qualify as particularly dense scenery.
