March 1999 Vol.7 Issue 3 Add To My Personal Library Two Powerhouses Enable CAD, Animation Work There is a distinct difference between the two professional-level graphics cards we review here and the entry-level cards we've reviewed. The price tags and specifications show that these are two different breeds of animal. The AccelGalaxy retails for $1,699, and the Oxygen GMX retails for a staggering $2,299. Standard graphics cards can be had for less than $90. These cards are definitely not for the home user. They're targeted for professional graphics designers who work with very complex 3-D images day in and day out. We took these two cards out for a walk to see what they could do. We ran the Indy3D tests on both cards (see "How We Tested") to test their abilities with CAD, animation, and simulation. The AccelGalaxy is a 32-bit AGP card with a hefty 52MB
