Real World Performance Usage


The graphics card was manufactured with one goal in mind: powerful and seamless native LCD support for stressful memory-straining situations under multi-monitor environments (whoof!). We put the hardware to the test and introduced it to a Dell 20" LCD and a NEC 18" LCD.


Enabling us to test the stress which the card could handle, we set both monitors to a very fine 1600x1200 resolution. The card handled the conditions beautifully. Quality was kept stellar, no imperfections were found, and no visual lag or distortion was present.



We first displayed the TweakTown website, then a very detailed desktop image.




The images displayed on both monitors are crisp and unflawed. Window and object movement between screens was consistently smooth with no choppiness.




Quality of image was identical to that found on a top of the line Radeon 9800 XT. Colors were vivid, detail was crisp and motion was smooth. No multi-window shadowing was present and cross-monitor control was flawless. In addition, sound emission was nearly non-existent and no extra power was drawn from the PSU.


So far, the features are looking good - how about real world gaming?
