K, before I get tons of hatemail or hate posts from the nvidia zealots out there, I just want to point out that I found this page and that I don't know whether it is true or not! Anyways, it IS a reliable website and the pictures has www.sharkyextreme.com , another reliable website, so I guess its true. Anyways, go to this link http://www.savagenews.com/articles/hardware/video/nvidia/nvidia-on-kyro/nvidia-on-kyro.html to see how cheap nivida has become!

anyways T&L is a good feature and I'm using it now in B&W.
so I don't care much for any video card that doesn't use it.

And the Kyro III will have T&L, btw.

That's something to look forward to. The Tile Based Rendering system with T&L would be a force to reccon with. Will be interesting to see how it will stack up against it's competitors ATI, Nvidia, and Matrox. It good to see another company challenging nvidia again. ;)

I agree that competition is good. Is it just me(and my ignorance) or does the Kyro company put out cards more often than nVidia lately. It seems like the Kyro 2 just came out a few months ago and its only a few months till Kyro 3.

hmmm... maybe i'll consider of selling my gf2mx and get a Kyro III...
I always interested with Kyro's Hidden Surface Removal technology, and Bump mapping ;)

Nah...I have been with nvidia since the rivia128 days, and I've allways been satisfied with its performance and compatibility with both directX and OpenGL. Not only that, their drivers are very robust, and updated often (something that keeps me away from ATI cards). I would really like to try out the new Kyro III, to see what all the fuss is about. Hey, if sharky thinks its a good card, I might consider it. But for now, the Geforce 2 stays.
