The ATI All In Wonder RADEON 8500 DV is in the testbed at Tom's Hardware and they were fairly impressed by the features offered by it but read it for yourself if your in the market for a multi purpose video card.
HotHardware reviews both the Asus V8200T5 Deluxe and V8200T2 Deluxe GeForce3 Ti video cards.
As of tomorrow (22nd Oct) we will have the brand new GeForce Titanium cards in stock from Leadtek, ASUS and PixelView in the TweakTown Shop - Making us one of the first resellers in Australia to stock these hot new video cards from nVidia, I might even order one for myself.
For those of you who own GeForce cards and want the best performance for them, the GeForce Tweak Utility is the software program to acheive it. Version 3.1 RC2 of this wonderful little program is available, go to the website here.
Still deciding on which GeForce3 card to get? Well head on over to Overclockers Online and see if the Visiontek GeForce3 is for oyu. here's a snip:
"Like I said, the memory of all the GeForce 3 cards is clocked at 460MHz (230MHz DDR) by default. In order to achieve these speeds, some very fast memory is needed. The VisionTek comes with 3.8ns memory, that can take a lot more than 460MHz as you will see later on. The preinstalled heatsinks are doing a good job in keeping the chips cool, and you can bet your ass off that they will get hot when running through several loops of 3D Mark 2001. The heatsink that sits on the core, is pretty big as well although a Blue Orb would outsize it I think."
Hey all, Gavin 'Osiris' Ballard from the forums here... I'll be posting news here (frequently I hope), helping out Mike and company. So here's my first tidbit...
nVidia has just recently whacked the word 'Titanium 500' onto the end of their new GeForce 3 cards. What does it mean? The guys over at [H]ardOCP take a look here.
Inside Project has not one, but two GeForce3 reviews to share with you.
Asus GeForce3 Pure:
"Now that the NVIDIA has set the video standards, and become more popular, manufactures are starting to bring all sorts of variations of the Geforce 3 to the market. In most cases, manufactures are beefing up their cards with extra features, such as extra video features, faster memory, and larger heatsinks. The reasoning behind these extra features is an attempt of standing out from the crowd. The way ASUS has been leaning with there boards is quite obviously catering to overclockers. This is apparent from the larger heatsinks..."
Elsa Gladiac 920:
"Inside the box there are Gladiac 920 with green cooler and green RAMsinks, standard VGA 15-pin D-sub connector and TV-out with an S-video connection. For TV-Out Elsa also included an S-video to RCA adaptor, which is great if you don't have S-video connector on TV or adaptor. There is also FULL versions of Giants: Citizen Kabuto GeForce 3 optimized version (also known as DX8.0 optimized version) and Elsamovie 2000 software DVD-Player."
The DDR Zone has just posted a review of the Leadtek GeForce3 TDH Video Card. here's a snip:
"GeForce 3 cards require better cooling than it's predecessors, and the first thing most people would notice about the newest Leadtek offering is their efforts to ensure the card won't fry. Sporting a great big heat sink with embedded fan for the GPU, the Winfast also has a temperature sensor underneath the sink that monitors the core temperature of the GPU. This goes in favour of the over clocker of course, and over clocking is something that Leadtek cards have always been fairly capable of."
