Visiontek GeForce 3 Review - PCSTATS
With it's huge reputation preceding it already, I was really looking forward to what I could 'persuade' this little green card to do for me...

Visiontek GeForce3 Specs

For the testing the following system components were used to test out the MSI Starforce 822 against the Visiontek Geforce 3:

Test System:

Athlon "T-Bird" 1 GHz AVIA 0110 at 1.5 GHz (10x150)
Asus A7V133 BIOS 1005-A Via 4in1 4.31V
2x 256 MB PC-100 Apacer Ram
30 GB IBM DeskStar 75 GXP
20 GB Quantum Fireball AS
ATI TV Wonder
Realtek 10/100 NIC
AOpen 56k Modem
SB Live! Platinum 5.1

Video cards in comparison:

VisionTek GeForce 3 (200/460) Detonator 12.00
VisionTek GeForce 3 (235/550) Detonator 12.00
MSI StarForce 822 (200/460) Detonator 12.00


Windows 98 SE
DirectX 8.1 Beta


3DMark 2001
AquaMark 2.1
Vulpine GLMark
Quake III Arena 1.17

Looking at the two cards it is really hard to distinguish between the two. Were it not for the MSI being heavily modded, and outfitted with a DVI video output you'd be hard pressed to tell one card from another. Both the MSI and the Visiontek appear to closely follow the nVidia reference design.

Of course, we're going to start off with everyone's favorite benchmark, 3DMark 2001.
