ASUS promote it as “dynamic overclocking”, after all. The ASUS board has some interesting twiddly bits, which I’ll get to in a moment, but as far as drivers go it’s a plain “reference” board. Take care of your valuable system to provide the best safety with. GeForce2s run pleasingly cool compared with the earlier GeForce chip, and so pretty much any old chip cooler will do the job. Detailed Information will be provided on availability, package contents, performance, pricing, stability, unique features and odd quirks with our review board. But crashes are bad enough.

The same concerns x 32 bpp. GeForce2 Pro based cards have got faster memory, what makes gamable all higher resolutions. If you ask me, idle CPUs are just something to run the Distributed. Like other ASUS “Deluxe” cards, the V comes with their big, chunky LCD shutter-glasses, which let you play your games in 3D by very rapidly blacking out each side in turn, in synchrony with rapidly switching images on the monitor.

That’s why the complicity of the game is very high. Video 3Digests Video cards: That’s why one may to expect a performance gain when setting the board at higher frequency. Asys in mind that this is the “Pure” version that Asus makes and does not come with any type of video in or out. Give Dan some money!

No one will dare doubt that ASUSTeK offer high quality products, a rich complete set, unigue engeneering developments allowing a user to adjust modern 3D accelerators as what they want. The drivers that come on the V disk are based on the somewhat elderly v5. In the “other stuff” department, many cheapo cards’ software bundles are often forgettable enough that you can confidently slip the discs under the nearest convenient frosty drinks without once looking at the software.


Undoubtedly, the main deterrent was the price, and the manufacturers were afraid that those cards would hardly sell. But if you’re into 3D games, and especially if you’ve got a big monitor and can thus use higher than by resolutions without your pixels going fuzzy, it bears repeating that a GeForce2 GTS will give you the serious speed you’re looking for. Some cards come with funky game bundles.

Asus V Software Driver, Continued If you’re as strict on having a particular refresh setting in all resolution and color depths then this option screen will be a blessing to you as well. If you set the memory to supernumerary frequencies, the performance gain will be much more. Most of the little things are what will likely be setting each card apart from one another in this comparison.

Any graphics card on the market today can handle playing DVDs, provided you’ve got a MHz-or-faster CPU, by just sitting there and pumping CPU-generated graphics onto the screen, without doing any decoding work itself.

This wouldn’t be a problem, if the v5. But if you’re looking for a video-in, video-out card with OK video editing software, a good pack-in game, and 3D glasses as a bonus, and the price won’t force you to sell relatives you actually care about into slavery, then the V Deluxe could be the all-singing, all-dancing upgrade board for you. The faster you run a chip, the more heat it’ll generate.

But I still wanted to see better performance out of the ASUS board, so it was time pto give the stock drivers the boot. At first qgp-v7700, the only thing that sets the V apart from a plain vanilla GeForce2 is its unconventional round main-chip cooler. Make a phone call to the user-defined phone number. This is not surprising because they have done this in the past, with the “Deluxe” version of their V and V cards.

But as built-in video capture goes, the V’s is fine. Even giant coolers like the one on Leadtek’s board won’t help much if they’ve only got hot air to work with. If you’ve got a big and fast enough hard drive, though, you can always go uncompressed, and throw away more than ten megabytes of disk space per second of video.

However, if you have the money to spend and need more graphics processing power or must have the best then the GeForce2 GTS is for you. Later on in the review you can take a peek at how the GeForce compares and come to your own conclusion on this issue as well. Full frame gap-v7700 DVD to i resolution.

When I considered the first 64 MBytes card on GeForce2 GTS I wrote that when at the level where large textures are used such local memory size gives out a positive effect. Drivers not provided by the manufacturer of a particular fancy bell-and-whistle-encrusted card probably won’t let you use any extra card features. You just end up with a computer that runs for an unpredictable amount of time and then crashes, over and over, and unless you pop the hood and specifically check out the video card fan you’ll go bananas trying to figure out the problem.

There are lots of cheaper cards with the right outputs.
