The 700 Club: eMac versus iMac versus iBook
Page Two -- Gaming

Posted July 11th, 2002

Note how the iBook falls way behind when texture quality and resolution reaches maximum. Its Radeon Mobility graphics chip with only 16MB of VRAM is no match for the GeForce2 MX in the eMac and iMac (32MB DDR) and the Radeon 7500 Mobility in the TiBook (32MB DDR).

The iBook fairs better in the Unreal Tournament test. The large L2 cache helps it gain a slight advantage when no AltiVec optimizations and no hardware graphics acceleration are present.
