So, today the tests will be conducted for three GeForce2 MX based cards: Test results All the card have decent 2D quality which is similar to cards from other brand-name companies. The Lobby scene in 3Dmark features the same game engine and graphics as Max Payne a game that’s due out later this year. Installation and drivers Test system: By reading this site you agree to our cookie policy. As NVidia continues to further implement things like improved FSAA support, and level of detail bias controls in their driver set, there are less and less reasons for recommending a Voodoo5 card. Quake3 Arena demo The tests were carried out in two modes:

They have just about all the features you could want except maybe environmental bump mapping. The difference from the first reviewed card is only in the DVI connector for digital monitors. If you crave the ultimate in speed then look at the Elsa Gladiacas it is one of the best priced GeForce3’s around, if just plain very fast will do gefoce2 make sure you look at this card the Elda Ultra.

Winbond esa memory chips with 6 ns access time, which corresponds to MHz. All of the ‘Cons’ listed below can be considered relatively minor.

Full scene antialiasing FSAA can improve picture quality, but can also introduce some blurring of 3D objects. Write a comment below. Image quality was very good at the middle setting, but slight blurring was evident. User’s Manual; CD with drivers and utilities.

And even at X, 75 Hz you may work comfortably with this card. The rlsa has TwinView support, i. However, you shouldn’t expect the performance equal to an AGP card see our 3Digest.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: The benchmark also has options specifically for the GeForce3, but these are greyed out when a GeForce2 is installed, so I ran the default benchmark and chose full screen setting. Vulpine GL Mark is a free download from, http: The next thing I wanted to check was if the PIII optimizations would fare better with a higher clock speed.

I was able to overclock glasiac Gladiac to MHz gefotce2 the core, and to MHz on the memory without creating visual hladiac. Since it was released the GeForce2 Ultra has dropped considerably in price, as Elsa cards are already priced very competitively, now is probably a very good time to upgrade from that old Voodoo3, that just isn’t up to the job these days. I ran 3DMark again with the card overclocked to show the gains that can be made, although not much, the extra performance is a free upgrade, which cant be heforce2 O:.

The GPU is equipped with a big black heatsink similar to the one of the 3dfx Voodoo3 For comparative analyses the results of the following cards are used: The graph below shows the results.

I’m sure everyone reading this is familiar with coolbits by now so I wont bore you with a screen shot. This is the benchmark everyone’s talking about this year, although again its got some GeForce3 only features, it give any graphics card eosa good workout.

ELSA GLADIAC GeForce2 Ultra (AGP 4x, 64 MB)

Texture and Lighting Engine: As this is the first GeForce2 card that I’ve reviewed in a while it is somewhat tricky to decide, what I should use as a baseline. Although it is not too much, the performance boost will be noticeable.

The image is sharp up to X at Hz. At higher resolutions and color depths, the performance difference between the two 3D-boosting methods is greatly reduced, as the GeForce’s fill rate becomes the bottleneck.

The GeForce graphics cards all use the same drivers, having just been using Detonator But for folks with 19″ or smaller monitors, the 32MB model should be fine. The memory’s frequency is too difficult to raise, while the GPU speed doesn’t matter much, as you know.

Well, the overclocking potential is promising, but the performance will hardly increase much because of the restrictions of the PCI ellsa. I had no problems with 2D performance, including DVD and DivX playback, 2D performance as far as I’m concerned is very good on all the current Nvidia GeForce based cards, and will allow you to run any application you should wish to.

Until gaming video cards had only the company’s own design. This situation, however, is typical of Europe only, while in the USA you may find them even cheaper than the cards from Asian makers. That is why this card wasn’t overclocked for the tests.
