Question Doom3 Timedemo on ancient graphics cards

My GeForce DDR 32MB (NV10) got 10.1 FPS on 640x480 @ low quality.

Was surprised how playable Doom3 was on the NV10, the textures and speed weren't as ugly as i feared. However, I immediatley re-installed my NV35GL.

5200 sucks. I don't know why it's so bad, but it is. It gets pretty terrible speeds on Raven Shield, which isn't nearly as advanced.

Arrow Re: Doom3 Timedemo on ancient graphics cards

What is your 5200 hardware and configuration? 64-bit or 128-bit? Does it have 64/128/256M RAM?

My 64-bit PCI 5200 (Gainward) gets 17.7 FPS on 640x480 @ low quality, so if you have an AGP 5200, I'm thinking your FPS should be better.

I had to RMA a 6800 GT, so I'm stuck with a slighly lesser video card in the meantime....

Doom3 benches on the GeForce2 MX 400 (not like I'm spending any time playing), here ya go...

timedemo demo1 1

High Quality 1280x1024 no AA/AF v-sync on, all options on (the way I played with the GT)

2148 Frames Rendered in 1110.5 Seconds = 1.9 FPS

Low Quality 640x480 no AA/AF v-sync off, all options off

2148 Frames Rendered in 121.8 Seconds = 17.6 FPS

i cannot answer that because i have the same exact card (128mb series), and it runs at a good 30-40 fps at 800x600. course, i had to disable the shadows, but im working on ways to get them back. its still fun without shadows tho
