For those who are looking for an alternative to nVidia, there is Matrox. Their newest offering, the Matrox G550 has been reviewed by the folks at Bench House. Is it a viable video solution? Go and see for yourself. here's a snip:
"In the times of nVidia and ATI dictating the graphic cards market there are a few people that actually remember that Matrox was the first real pioneer of the 3D acceleration. We, here at http://www.bench-house.com, did a review of Matrox's latest graphics card - G550.The history of the company as well as some new technologies it incorporated into the new chip are reviewed."
Whew! RIVA Station has just posted a review with not one, but FIVE GeForce3 Video Cards. The players are 3d Power (Morpheus), Chaintech (G-300), Gigabyte (GV-GF3000D), Leadtek (WinFast GeForce3 TDH), and PowerCooler (ChameLeon).
While many of us may think it's almost second nature to overclock a video card, there are many who have never tried it before. WinHQ has just posted a new guide entitled Video Card Overclocking that shows you just how easy it can be to get that added performance that you've been looking for...and at no added cost. here's a snip:
"Luckily, all the stuff you need to overclock your video card is free and available for download. You need a utility that supports your card, and you can pull one off of TweakFiles. Download one that corresponds with your chip. Remember, a Geforce overclocker will tweak all Geforce card brands. (ie. leadtek and visiontek) If you can't find one there, go to Google.com and type in "Your brand" Overclocker and see what you can find. Also, Powerstrip can tweak most cards."
The TechZone has just gotten hold of one of the OCZ branded GeForce3 cards and have proclaimed it "The Fastest Video Card in the World". Go see why in their latest review of the OCZ Titan3 GeForce3 Video Card.
Matrox has fallen a bit in the world of video cards, but they recently came out with a newer model. Take a stroll over to Neosekker and see whether the Matrox G550 is the answer to the companies woes. here's a snip:
"As you can see in the specs, the G550 is no graphics powerhouse. With only a ~125MHz/333MHz core and memory ratings, the G550 is by no means fast when compared to the 250MHz/460MHz of the GeForce2 Ultra and 200MHz/460MHz of the GeForce3. (As an aside, the "~125MHz" is only a rough estimate because Matrox keeps that info secret.) But since this is not a gamers card, mind bending speed is of little concern; what it lacks in power it makes up for in features."
It seems that not everyone can afford a fancy new GeForce3 card, so here's an alternative for you. Head on over to Tech-Planet and see what they have to say about the Leadtek GeForce2 Pro 64MB Video Card. here's a snip:
"With the release of the Geforce 3's, the Geforce2 variety have become really affordable. Today I look at Leadtek's 64mb version of the Geforce2 Pro. It performs better than a GTS, and slightly under an Ultra. With a little overclocking, this thing performs on par with a Geforce2 Ultra. So... lets get into it !"
