NVIDIA´s New GeForce 3 GPU

Tom´s Hardware has posted an GeForce 3 GPU article.
This article is supposed to introduce the vast amount of GeForce3´s new features. It is trying to show you the benefits of its DirectX8 implementation, but also checking for some possible flaws. You won´t find any benchmark results in this first piece that I am writing about GeForce 3, because those are not supposed to be published before GeForce3 has got a bullet proof set of drivers. However, right now those ´bar graphs´ may not be the biggest catch. The really impressive part of GeForce3 is its new technology. The name ´GeForce3´ may make it look as if it was a mere successor of NVIDIA´s two previous chips GeForce256 and GeForce2, but while it may still include quite a bit of the technology of its predecessors, its new technology is certainly marking a quantum leap for what will be possible in future 3D-applications.
