And they’ve often got fancy software bundles, as well. Be the first to write a review. Tue Feb 13, 2: Learn more – opens in a new window or tab Postage: This all adds to the price. You get the full versions of two Psygnosis game titles – the not-so-new but still excellent dragon-riding 3D show-off game, Drakan, and the over-the-top racer Rollcage. At this price point, now that you get TV out thrown in, the Gainward board is excellent value.

I guess I would have better performance if I had a P!!! Tests conducted at x 32bit Colour.
The v5 drivers also include support for “S3TC”, S3’s texture compression technology that can greatly reduce the amount of video memory used by textures. Tue Feb 13, 2: In addition to that, the three 10pf filter caps that were on there were over-softening the picture.

The wierd part cardexpertt that the drive is still sputtering along and I’ll hear the startup sound and after that some occasional sounds if I hit enter Anybody have one of these cards?
The image quality is still quite bad, but nVidia has supposedly solved these ‘teething problems’ in the new GEForce chip, then again the image quality is still acceptable, and when the TNT2 Ultra is performing at such fast speeds, who’d bother with such fine details? All results are based on an x resolution at bit colour depth with each processor’s proper optimization.
For a little while yet, though, the pinnacle of consumer 3D boards will still be the high-specification version of the GeForce chipset – the GeForce DDR.
Some extreme overclockers clamp heftier coolers onto their graphics cards, trading the stock tape for thermal transfer grease and alternative retention systems.
Aug 14, Posts: Super 7 compatibility I believe this would be a major concern to a lot of users out there. I guess my impression of them now is still more or less the same as when I was using their S3 ViRGE based cards, those cards provided adequate performance for non-graphic intensive uses and for the occasional 2D game.
Even though I added an additional 0. The latest drivers I’ve been using are the detonator This amount is subject to change until you make payment. Win98 sounds to be loading, but no video. This is just plain odd Mon Feb 12, 2: So you need a motherboard with an AGP slot. Soft VGA outputs drive my eyes insane!

Review: Gainward CARDEXPERT GeForce DDR graphics card
Whatever video mode ‘safe’comes up in is the only graphics mode this card wants to do now. The Rear of the Fan Rated 0. Also, it took me almost an hour to get my old card back with drivers working again.
Although the video card arena is very much saturated by the enormous amounts of TNT2 cards available, I’m pretty sure that the Cardex will not just be another face in the crowd. However, not many manufacturers actually bother to integrate nifty features into their respective offerings, some simply lower their prices, and for the more distinguished brand names, they have already a nice market share and customers loyal to their brands.
The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. Usually, the latest red-hot chipset comes out, and two months later you can buy something faster from some other manufacturer.

It doesn’t take an expert to install one anyway. See product details Sell one like this.
Cheaper cards might not be able to run at quite as high a clock speed, but the difference is often trivial. GeForce cards draw a vgaa of current, and linear regulators aren’t up to the task – hot 3D boards have for some time required switching regulator motherboards, and most recent motherboards have the right kind. On close examination, the heatsink and fan placed on the Cardex TNT2 Ultra has a fan integrated into the heatsink.
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
The GeForce, like some other cards, has “motion compensation” implemented in hardware, which reduces the CPU load substantially, but at the cost of slightly lower image quality. Mon Feb 12, 6:
