 Wrapper Performance on Lower End Video Cards 



This article deals with the performance of the NVIDIA RIVA 128ZX and ATI RAGE PRO video chipsets on the various Glide Wrappers available today.

The two video cards tested were, specifically:

STB Velocity 128 8MB, PCI

ATI RAGE PRO TURBO 2MB, AGP 2x (onboarrd: IBM Aptiva L5H)

My test system is as follows: 

         IBM APTIVA L5H
      96MB Ram 

Screenshots for Mario64 were taken just after reading the intro text to level 1:  Screenshots for 
WaveRace64 (Jap) were taken at various points along level 1. Click on the small screenshots by
