I'm looking to get a mid-range graphics board for my PentiumPro PC to
accelerate some OpenGL work I'm doing. I'm currently using Mesa, but I'm not
adverse to using someone else's implementation of OpenGL. After doing some
market research, it seems that most people are using 3Dfx Voodoo-based boards,
but both the Rendition V2200 chip (used in the Hercules Thriller3D board) and
the NVidia RIVA128 chip (used in the Diamond Viper 330, the STB Velocity 128,
and the Canopus Total3D 128V) spec out better than the 3Dfx Voodoo Rush
My requirements are these: 3D acceleration in a window, OpenGL support,
Windows NT support, and Linux support would be a big plus, but is negotiable.
Does anyone have any experience with OpenGL and V2200- or RIVA128-based
graphics cards? Thanks!
