Yes it's true. Many people where quite upset when The GURU of 3D annouced it's death back in early December of last year but it seems that the grave wasn't comfortable if you look here http://www.guru3d.com/.
3D Xtreme has a look at the inexpensive Hercules 3D Prophet 4000XT video card and finds that you don't have to outlay big dollars for decent frame rates even though they don't recommend it for serious gamers.
It's sad to see but The GURU of 3D will no longer exist as from Monday and it's not all to do with their host Playnet going down either but Hilbert Hagedoorn puts his reasons down here as to why and those of you who use the Geforce Tweak Utility will still be able to get it from this location.
Remember the RumbleFX Force Feedback Headphones a while back? Well, it seems that the folks at Evergreen are at it again, and BlueSmoke wants to let you know if they were successful or not. So go check out their latest review of the RumbleFX 3D Sound Amplifier. here's a snip:
"BlueSmoke.net takes a look at Evergreen Technologies' RumbleFX 3D Sound Amplifier, a SRS-based sound enhancement gadget. Evergreen proclaims that this product will "transform your listening experience from any mono, stereo or surround sound device". These gadgets used to be either only modestly effective or simply plain rubbish. Does the RumbleFX live up to the hype? I've auditioned it with all sorts of source material, from Chopin to Charlie "Bird" Parker to the Final Fantasy X soundtrack. There's also a peek under the hood to see the circuits behind the magic."
The Guru of 3D wanted to get in on the Kyro II scene, so here's their take on the Hercules 3D Prophet 4500 Video Card. Is it any good yet? here's a snip:
"The one disappointment back then was the fact that this card was not very fast, at least not fast enough to beat the competition. Manufacurer STMicroelectronics clearly noticed the loss that is called 3dfx and they put the development of their products in the 5th gear. A few months later I get a press release from STMicroelectronics. Kyro-II was born, and this little baby is powering up the 3D Prophet 4500."
