View Full Version : Yet another G400 review (but this one I care about)

Combatsim.com finally put up what is for me, the first relevent review in the never-ending NVIDIA VS MATROX VS 3Dfx wars. They compare a couple of flight sims running on various cards. It ain't a great review (methodolgy) by any stretch of the imagination, but if flight sims are your thing, you might want to look.

Not a single mention of dualhead. Flight sims are the one segment of the gaming market that would be highly interested in this feature. I guess if MS sims are your thing (which support dualhead), the choice is easy. If you're into F4, it gets a little harder to choose.

Sorry Kruzin ...

they didn't call it 'DualHead', but that article starts its 'preliminary look' with:

"From the North we have Matrox,
the twin headed Queen, armed with
bumped maps and dressed to the MAX
[...]
But the G400 does environmental bump mapping
in hardware, as well as featuring the
dual head display capability"

Btw, I love that review, because of its 'different' kind of speech http://forums.gagames.com/forums/smile.gif

OK, He mentioned it's existance, but he didn't talk about the fact that some of the sims he was benching do actually use it http://forums.gagames.com/forums/wink.gif

I see ... you're right, he should have done that.
