FINALLY finished benchmarking that last CPU :dead:

Windows benchmarking takes forever, that's for sure.

I tested a few CPUs ranging from the Pentium 100 all the way to one of the fastest options, a K6-III+/550.

The card scales very nicely and it is clear that the fast AMD K6 chips are a great CPU to go with a Voodoo 2.

And here just the chart:

Why no 686 Cyrix CPUs?

Socket 7 Voodoo vs Voodoo 2 CPU Scaling

In this graph we are looking at Intel Socket 7 CPUs and how they scale on a 3Dfx Voodoo compared to a Voodoo 2. We can clearly see as the processing power increases, so does the performance gap between the Voodoo and Voodoo 2.

Interesting to see that Turok is quite CPU bound with little difference when comparing Voodoo with Voodoo 2.

Later games such as Quake 2 or Unreal are more GPU bound and we can see a larger gap between these cards.

I was kind of wanting to do charts like this one on my own, but I've yet to do them. I wanted to have all available available socket 7 CPUs and PCI - AGP 2x compatible GPUs
