could someone please tell me either ps2 or GeForce2/3 GPU more powerful?

How many triangles a ps2 gpu can process within 1 sec? As i know a normal GeForce2 gpu can process 15 - 25 millions of triangles.

Btw, is GeForce2 using hardware to support FSAA? or using software ?

Finally, I MUST say THANX!!!!! to pete and al the others programmers who make the psxemu better and better!!! :)

And also all the game players who are always reply/provide solutions to others who has problems! :)

i got it

well, i finally got ti know the answer.

So far, not even a GeForce3 can beat ps2's gpu.

Ps2's gpu can process 75 million polygons/sec.max !!!!!!!

And here is the link for the ps2 specification :

And for the fsaa, some say it is supported by software, but according to NVidia, it's supported by hardware.

If the PS2 doesn't use 4 or 8-bit palette based textures anymore, then when it comes time for someone to write a GPU for an emulator (if that ever happens), the GF2/3 will be very good performance wise.

PS2 will never be this fast in a game. Cos in games there are textured polygons. This will slowdown the PS2. These 75.000.000 Polygongs/sec. are just theoretical.

I believe that I read somewhere (no exactally sure where), that, performance wize, the GEForce 3 out does even the PS2 processor. That would make the GEForce 3 the "king of the hill" and "top of the line".
sincerely,

About the PS2 being able to do 75 million polgons is so not true. I think that was without textures or shawdowing or any other special effects which is completly usesless unless you wanna play a game made out of wireframes. Most developers think the PS2 is gonna max out around 10 million polygons, Which isn't bad at all. Just remember what Sony has on paper doesn't mean it's true.

Well seeing as a number of them will be dvds you will have to have a dvd burning drive if you want access to all the games, but anyhow you should be buying the games. As for a ps2 emu, you'd very likely have to wait a good long while before it could play games much less be viable performance-wise.
