Ok today seems to be video card review day so to kick it off in a big way head over to RIVA Station where they have posted their Win, Lose or Ti - 21 GeForce Titanium Boards and see what the final pick was.
Mike "Darthtanion" Wright has just finished up a review of the Prolink XX-Player GeForce3 Video Card. It features the awe inspiring performance that we expect from a GeForce3 based card, and also includes a software package that is designed to handle the urges of those budding video editors out there. Come on in and see if it's worthy of your upgrading dollars.
Well first Tom's Hardware then AMD and now VIA has just released their video. It downloads as a zip file.
With 64MB RAM and the Kyro 2 GPU, it's time to see if this card is what you need for your performance rig. To find out, go check out the review of the Inno3D Kyro 2 Video Card.
t-break wants to answer the question of "Which budget video card should I buy?" So head on over and check out their Budget Video Card Comparison. here's a snip:
"Just one year ago an 800MHz CPU with a 64MB graphics card was an "over-the-top-of-the-line" system. Today we're looking at the same setup as a "budget" system. Sigh. it's as exciting as it is tiring to keep up with the pace at which hardware is moving. Who'd have imagine that in one years time, we'd have budget graphics cards with 64MB RAM, TV out and T&L features selling for less than 250 Dirhams (Under US$70)- but that's what we're bringing to you today."
The big news of the day is nVidia's release of information (and some reviewing samples) of the Titanium series of GeForce2 and GeForce3 video cards. here's a sampling of sites who have both information and previews of this new technology:
"'Tis that time of year again when the leaves wrestle themselves free from the branches and every young gamer's dreams fill with visions of the next marvel to surface from the graphic chip giant Nvidia. While this is a time of anxious anticipation for gamers, it is an extremely stressful time for manufacturers as they frantically jockey for position in line to be dealt out their chips."
"it's that time of year again! NVIDIA has just announced a new line of products, and we've got them! we've got pictures of all the new cards, and we've taken NVIDIA's new flagship product, the GeForce 3 Ti 500, and ran it though a slew of tests under Windows XP and Windows Millennium. Stop by and take a look!"
"Following the 6-month cycle NVIDIA today announced the so-long awaited graphics cards family - NVIDIA Titanium. Besides three new solutions aka GeForce3 Ti 500, GeForce3 Ti 200 and GeForce2 Ti, NVIDIA also prepared a new Detonator XP driver, which provides not only a tangible performance growth but also supports some new hardware features implemented in NVIDIA chips. Find out what these babies are worth!"
"We take a look at the GeForce3 Ti 500 as well as discuss the other fall 2001 products that are being announced by NVIDIA today. This is followed by an overview of the Detonator XP drivers and finally take a comprehensive look at performance, antialiasing, and overclocking."
"NVIDIA announced their new Titanium series. This preview shows you what´s behind the new GeForce 2 Ti and the GeForce 3 cards Ti200 / Ti500. In addition you can find detailed benchmark tests with a new Ti500 card under Windows 98SE and Windows XP!!"
3dXtreme has just posted a review of the SiS315 Video Card. it's designed for those on a budget, but lets see if it's worth it. here's a snip:
"Even in the days of the Geforce 3's and ATi Radeon II's, some people opt not to spend that amount of money but to get something that won't break the bank. For the budget minded consumer we have the Geforce 2MX400/MX200 series of video cards as well as STM's Kyro Based video cards. One company not to be considered in the High end graphics arena is SiS. While at times they have made some pretty promising products, none of them have been accepted by the gaming enthusiast. In saying this, I now have the pleasure to review SiS's latest graphics solution aimed at the Budget minded consumer while still being able to play todays games at acceptable frame rates. Hence, the SiS 315."
The DDR Zone has just posted a review of the Leadtek GeForce3 TDH Video Card. here's a snip:
"Anyone who knows Leadtek's track record would know that they are generally pretty good at producing high performance video cards at relatively inexpensive prices and their GeForce 3 Winfast TDH card continues this strategy. Coming in at a very reasonable price for what it is, the Winfast is less expensive than many other GeForce 3 products. Going on history alone, we can expect that performance won't be compromised."
