VisionTek GeForce3 - VisionTek GeForce3 - Page 7

The nVidia GeForce3 GPU has been talked about and anticipated for quite a while, ever since the announcement at the Intel Developer Forum many months ago. The VisionTek GeForce3 is our first GeForce3 graphics card to hit the TweakTown labs, and we are very excited to say the very least!

Conclusion

 

What else am I to say about the VisionTek GeForce3, apart from pure class? I think I can safely compare it, in more ways than one, to the Intel Pentium 4 processor. First the cost, the VisionTek GeForce3 isn't cheap at around US$300-400, but a worthy investment if you intend to play (at decent frame rates) new games in 6 or so months time. DX8 compatibility, like with the Intel Pentium 4 processor, Intel released the processor hoping companies would take advantage of the features it possesses. While not as extreme, nVidia have done a similar thing with the GeForce3. However, it's very important to note that game developers are already working closely with nVidia to take advantage of features such as the now infamous nfiniteFX Engine technology, which Microsoft's new Xbox gaming console will use.

 

If I were on the market for a new graphics card, I would wait around for a month or two. As the GeForce3 becomes more mainstream, it will become much cheaper and a more affordable option for home users.

 

VisionTek and nVidia as two separate companies are to be congratulated highly on an absolutely wonderful product, the VisionTek GeForce3 graphics card will become an integral part of our test systems here at TweakTown!
