wow technology has got a crap lot better
the sega dreamcast would only animate one car at 30 frames per second!!!
100,000 ploygons X 30 frame per second =3,000,000 polygons per second
which is the dreamcast's top rendering power
technology has gotten a crap load better, thats why i laugh at anyone calling the 360 a xbox 1.5.
BTW the Dreamcast was able to render more then 3 million polys a second, sega was just stating the base number. in reality the system could render around 10 million polys but the SH-4 CPU in the DC cant handle the geometry so the real world figures for the polygon performance is around 6-7 million polys per second. Test Drive Le Mans was one of the last and greatest racing games released for the system and that game was confirmed to push over 5 million polys per second
just some food for thought.
