Hercules 3D Prophet Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB Review

Since ATI's Radeon 9700 Pro started appearing on shop shelves nVidia have had to keep pace with their GeForce FX series. Recently ATI launched the Radeon 9800 Pro which is essentially a Radeon 9700 Pro with higher clock speeds to keep competitive against nVidia. Today Shawn "Toxic" Baker takes a look at the funky-looking Hercules 3D Prophet Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB video card that costs $660 US which certainly does not make it a product for the faint of heart.

Introduction

 

Video cards seem to be one of those items that the market can't get enough of; new cards are released every six months thanks to the tough competition between ATI and nVidia and any other company who dares to join the rat race. ATI's latest flagship model, the Radeon 9800, is the successor to the old speed king from ATI, the Radeon 9700 Pro.

 

Hercules is well known for creating a card that looks fantastic but performs just as well. The latest graphics card from Hercules follows the Radeon 9800 VPU or Virtual Processing Unit and comes with looks that should be able to kill the competition.

 

Well let's cut to the chase and see if the card is just simply looks or if it can perform the way it should.
