Matrox Parhelia Benchmarks @ Tom's

Matrox Parhelia Benchmarks @ Tom's news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

Tom's Hardware posted some benchmarks of the new Matrox Parhelia but the page didn't seem to stay up for long. Here is a summary taken from AnandTech's Web News page, remember that the Matrox drivers are still new and not as mature as the nVidia and ATi drivers. Honestly though, I was expecting better results from the new graphics challenger from Matrox.


Aquanox - Parhelia was beaten by ATI's 128MB 8500 and the Ti4600 nearly doubled the score.
Comanche 4 - Parhelia not breaking the 30FPS barrier at 1024x768 while the Ti4600 broke 40.
Jedi Knight 2 - At 1024x768 the Parhelia was about 30% behind both the 8500 and the Ti4600.
3DMark2002 SE v330 - Just breaking into the 7000s while their test system was breaking 10K with the Ti4600. The 8500 dusted it again as well.
Quake 3 Arena - Parhelia lagging way behind both cards and not even giving deathmatch playable frame rates at 1600x1200 in my opinion.
