Polygon Power

[Note: We're unable to accurately compare the specifications for the below consoles because the method the companies used to measure performance are so different. Sony and Microsoft's numbers are unrealistic and denote the raw (read: not real) performance of their respective systems, while Nintendo's and Sega's numbers are based on real performance during gameplay. With that said, the figures you see are just smoke and numbers. We refer you to compare the actual games.] Gamecube: 6 to 12 million polygons per second (conservative, but realistic estimate) PlayStation 2: 75 million polygons per second (realistically first-gen games are more like 3-5 million) Xbox: 150 million polygons per second (does not consider real gameplay environments) Dreamcast: Roughly 3 million polygons per second Nintendo 64: Around 150,000 polygons per second PlayStation: Around 360,000 polygons per second (lacks comparable effects)
