no it's not...obviously you have never had a voodoo5 and used it in the real world. I've had the opertunity to set it up side by side on identical systems with a geforce 2 and can fully and confidently say, the speed difference is negligable . and the video quality of the voodoo is vastly, not marginally, better. and that was witht he geforce using the latest drivers avalible.
So I will and always will hold my opinion that the geforce is overrated crap. you pay way too much for low quality graphics, features that are at best mediocre considering the Radeon 2's , and drivers so crappy they have to leak a beta every other week.
Every stopped to think that hey if my drivers are that good why does another set come out a week later? If they were written well to begin with you wouldn't need a new set.
I'm sorry but I find most nVidia fans to be brain washed into believeing they are paying top dollar for a superior card, when in fact that is not the case. Even dating back to the original TNT day's, when they claimed the TNT was faster than a Banshee....
Having had(Still have actually) both cards there claim was utterly ridiculous. Even with only one TMU the banshee at 16 bit far outperformed the tnt at both 16 bit and 32 bit, and the image quality of the banshee was again vastly superior.
My appologies if this appears to be a flame, that is not the intent. It simply irks me that people critisize the Voodoo 5 line based on facts that are , for lack of a better word, uncomfirmed. Considering that nVidia sent tweaked drivers to reviewers for testing purposes, and also sent boards with lower latency ram and clocked higher.
