And only after that they can be used to up the speed. The PCB is also traditionally of marine color. For one, we’re just starting to see more frequent official and “unsupported” driver releases. Dual-monitor support and TV-Out. That seems to be a strange tendency since the times of Voodoo.


Shall we begin with 3D Mark? The highest speed is MHz, that is why the access time is 2. At last year’s Comdex, ATI made a commitment to improve, and we’re starting to see some changes. We haven’t examined operation of such cards in the DirectX 9. Fortunately, it seems that performance is also comparable propnet the GF3. And at last, the given sample overclocks excellently. Here’s the card, done in Hercules’ trademark blue PCB, with a stylin’ blue heatsink to match. Besides, Retail and OEM packages enclose samples running prophdt equal frequencies.

Finally, here are the figures.

Last time we took price tags from www. Prphet seems to be mad about Evil, Devil, Monster and so on and so forth.

Apart from a heap of foam-rubber and the card the huge box has a brief user manual, herculess CD with drivers, an S-Video extender and a VGA proophet. The first card we reviewed based on the Radeon chip was the All-In-Wonder DVwhich, despite all its cool features, is still an expensive card that doesn’t run as fast as a regular Pentium 4 based computer Socket Andrey Vorobiev anvakams ixbt.

But there are still some problems with drivers and games. They’re based on the current official driver release from ATi, version 7.
