Looking to replace that slow Geforce 2 Ultra?

Zdnet is reporting that they've seen confidential documents regarding NV20's suspected level of performance.
In environments where there are low detail scenes (large triangles, simple geometry, hardly any depth) the NV20 is only twice as fast as the Geforce 2 Ultra. The difference in performance grows however with the complexity of the 3D scene (multitude of small triangles, very complex geometry, a lot of depth).

The anti-aliasing performance of the chip is also said to have increased substantially. Nvidia gives the NV20 a 300 percent increase in performance compared to the Geforce 2 Ultra. The performance of the chip doubles when handling geometrical data. According to Nvidia the NV20 is able to handle one trillion operations and 100 gigaflops (floating-point operations) per second.
Sounds great on paper, but I wonder if FSAA will actually WORK in Rogue Spear (where it is truly needed). Anyhoo, take a gander.
