With 3Dfx's new Voodoo cards set to appear at any moment, archrival NVidia has unveiled its latest graphics hardware.
The company claims an improved version of its popular GeForce architecture, the GeForce 2GTS, delivers even greater performance.
Chief among the enhancements made in the GTS is the ability to map two different textures onto a single pixel.
This will allow designers to greatly increase graphic detail on screen, and the chip can also generate far more polygons - the building blocks of 3D graphics - per second.
Products using the new chip are expected to ship with 32Mb of high-speed DDR RAM, and What PC? has already managed to get its paws on an NVidia reference board.
Our Labs tests showed that the GeForce 2GTS definitely brings a speed boost to existing titles - the chip clocked up an amazing score of 6132 under 3DMark 2000 and hit 93 frames per second on Quake III at 1024x768 with 16-bit colour and texture settings.
Previous GeForce 256 cards came in at 4976 and 80fps respectively.
