Return to Castle Wolfenstein:

Ran with "wolfmp +set sv_cheats 1". Used s_initsound 0, snd_restart, timedemo 1, demo checkpoint. Set r_ext_compressed_textures to 0 in wolfconfig_mp.cfg. Ran each resolution 2x and recorded the highest score.









Notes:

SiS, Rage 128, and both Savage cards didn't manage to run the checkpoint demo. The IBM SR9 (Savage 4 eXtreme) ran single player RTCW without problems. The crash with this card might be related solely to the checkpoint demo.




Unreal Tournament:

Launched the game, brought up the console, typed "timedemo 1". Waited for the second intro flyby to complete then marked down the second score.









Notes:

The SiS 305 and Speedstar a90 had problems again. Rage 128 seemed fine at 640x480 but would die at higher resolutions.




Conclusions:

Draw your own... IMHO, the Voodoo 5, Matrox G400, Radeons, and Savage 4 eXtreme seem quite reasonable options for a Linux desktop.
