here we see the radeon 8500 + Geforce ti 4400 are very similar in specs

and here we see the ti 4200 is above the radeon 9000

here we see a few errors..
1) on the gpureview page, 9200 radeon listed as agp 8x  i believe this is incorrect and its actually a agp 4x card
2) on the japamac list (http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php?topic=267.msg13820#msg13820) he lists the 9200 as being better then the 8500.. specs on gpurview show this to be incorrect.. (a common mistake because of the model number being lower)
texture fill + vertex rates are almost double on the 8500, which was meant to be a higher end gaming card of the year 2001

the 8500 is the most supported radeon card on mac os 9.. i have never ever had a problem with this card + its really a quick card compared to all my other cards.. its my best mac os 9 card that i own currently. 100% .. just be sure not to get 8500 LE as this is not the same as the real 8500 mac edition

here we see the 8500 is above the radeon 9000, even the "pro" 9000 card..

here we see a geforce 3 ti 500 is actually superior to the geforce 4mx
(also illustrated in japamacs list)

geforce 3 ti 500 is also slightly superior to the regular radeon 9000

heres a comparison between the 3d rage (i think what the rage 128 is based on?)
and the radeon 7000 pci
(3d rage vs RV100 GPU)

3D Rage was the grampa of Rage 128

ok :)
http://www.anandtech.com/show/389/2
"The original Rage 128 ended up with a shipping core clock speed of around 100MHz"

" From our conversations with ATI it seemed like the 133/133MHz mark was what they were aiming for with the Rage 128 Pro"

"We received word that the final shipping Rage 128 Pro chips would be running at a clock speed of 125MHz, identical to that of NVIDIA's TNT2"

ok that makes alot more sense.. 100-125mhz ..
