Villagemark D3D v1.19
This benchmark was developed by PowerVR and serves to illustrate the advantages of the Kyro2, as it is in the VillageMark the overdraw is particularly large with a factor of up to 10. Most graphics cards also calculate the objects that are hidden by others and therefore actually only mean wasted bandwidth.
The Kyro II is above all doubts here and even beats one Radeon8500. The reason for the missing values in 640 and 800 is a bug in the frame counter of the Villagemark. After a successful run, it always showed 0 fps. According to the stopwatch method, the values should be around 290 or 230fps.
This also shows that the strengths of the GeForce4MX, compared to the GeForce2, are in complex scenarios with many texture layers and high overdraw. Even in 16-bit, the GeForce2 Ti cannot hold a candle to the test item.
The GeForce3 Ti200 as the best of both worlds is a little further ahead, despite the lower clock rate.
