Graphics cards have the biggest influence on computer performance,
and the most important companies were described:
3Dlabs, ATI, Matrox, nVidia and others.
Graphics cards from different generations were tested with 2D/3D benchmarks
to show progress in performance.
Also was shown influence of cpu strenght and optimised drivers on results.
2D and 3D performace of graphics cards from different generations.
GPU - Benchmarked cards
2D - Winbench 99 - CrystalMark09
3D1 - 3DMark 2000 - 3DMark 2001
3D2 - Aquamark - 3Dmark 2003
3D3 - 3Dmark 2005 - 3Dmark 2006
