The ASUS v7700 GeForce2 GTS ships with a decent size 3 wires instead the normal two... The extra wire is included because this card has a hardware (temperature) monitoring chip on it to measure temperatures and voltages. I was pleasantly surprised with the v7700 because when physically touching the GPU chip it didn't burn me like other GeForce cards I have played with... This is good because, it later on it will give us better overclocking potential.
Below is a picture of the Winbond W83781D chip, using this chip the v7700 is able to decode information sent to it by not only the hardware monitoring fan but also from an internal temperature probe and voltage monitor.
The ASUS v7700 GeForce2 GTS sports such fine features as 8 texels per clock with Hypertexel, per-pixel shading Graphics Processing Unit, Built-in 32 MB DDR video memory with up to 5.3 GB/sec bandwidth, Dual-texture pixel-fill capacities with four new Hypertexel pipelines, 1.6 Gtexel fill rate, 25 Mtriangles/sec through T&L/setting which when put together in simple english = friggin beautiful quality graphics, I think you'll agree with me after seeing this GeForce2 GTS in action... Simply stunning - There's really no better way to describe it. As the box says, "Incredible 3D Experience with 2nd-generation GPU", how true indeed... Below we have some shots of this card performing in Quake 3 Arena and Rally Championship Demo which is included in the games bundle...
