The PCB is a striking red colour, along with the memory heatsinks and the GPU cooler making it a standout card if showing off your computer is your thing. It’s a fairly old benchmark at the moment as the performance figures are going to show us. It’s the benchmark everyone loves to see and probably the biggest indicator of performance that everyone can relate to. Depending on the test, you can usually adjust the clocks a bit higher. Vertex and Pixel Shaders are two patented architectural advancements that allow for a multitude of effects. It seems like Gainward have given us a golden sample this time.

The card was stock cooled throughout with only a case fan near the card helping to draw the gerorce air away which is slightly worse than blowing cold air over it. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. GeForce3 Ti Radium?

This is most observable at x where the required card fillrate is high and the increase in memory clocks giving higher memory bandwidth are helping. Massive performance is easily obtainable and the standard clocks look fairly conservative.

Q3 with the v1. The Hercules comes with the usual Hercules driver CD which starts up with a nice menu system. Views Read Edit View history. GeForce 8 9 You can see the increase to Mhz memory gives less than geforfe increase.


GeForce3 Graphics Cards

Not quite a Radeon killer performance wise but very close in the real world. The Ti version further increases performance and Gainward have taken it that little bit further.

The engine runs incredibly fast on current hardware. Nothing exciting but the performance is free. However, being Gainward it was somewhat inevitable that they put their own spin on things. Hopefully that lets us compress things a bit more while still giving you all the information you need. Conclusion We’re big fans of the GeForce3 here at Hexus. Also, it’s worth noting that it was a straight run at the highest clocks possible.

Depending on the test, you can usually adjust the clocks a bit higher. Performance in Quake 3 on current hardware is playable at all common resolutions. GeForce3 Operating Frequency’s Speed is one of the key differences between the different Nvidia products, faster core and memory frequencies mean more expense and the need for better yields on the chipsets.

Installation via device manager was a simple matter of pointing the driver wizard to the directory where the drivers were located. Most Ti’s will do Mhz memory clock however Gainward has extra faith in all its Golden Sample cards and actively encourages you to run the card at the quicker clock speed.

Review: Hercules GeForce 3 Ti – Graphics –

While we were there, ATI released a new driver for the Radeonso we had to go back to the drawing board with our testing. Top marks to Gainward and hopefully it will stay in my system for a little while longer!


Sadly, unlike it’s original sibling, the Ti doesn’t feature tk500 in functions which the original card provided via a daughter card with Philips SAAE processor. It will bring gfeorce up to speed on the new approach to real-time graphics that NVIDIA pioneered with the GeForce3, including fancy-pants things like vertex shaders and pixel shaders.

Other architectural changes include EMBM support [2] [3] first introduced by Matrox in and improvements to anti-aliasing functionality. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The new clocks make no dent in the performance at x meaning that we need a CPU speed increase to get any more performance at x Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Lets take a look at the official specification before moving on to performance.

Dell returns to the stock market after six years. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. They are quite famous for their Golden Sample cards that run quicker than the reference rated speeds provided by NVIDIA and many a buyer has been swayed towards a Golden Sample card due to this out of the box advantage.
