So you’d, frankly, have to be a tad nuts to consider an Ultra, unless you’re definitely running by for all of your games. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. Or just a hung game. Indeed, in case of GeForce2 GTS the memory resulting frequency is the same for both card variants – MHz they differ only in memory size. Software includes the drivers, and other stuff like DVD playback software and games.

The basic limitation of LCD-glasses 3D, though, remains. The included driver-and-utility disc that comes with the V Deluxe is version 5. Heatsink-and-fan chip coolers can’t cool the device to which they’re attached to a temperature below the temperature of the air that surrounds the cooler.

I decided to do a couple of tests with the thermal portion of the utility by checking the fan speed monitor and check the accuracy of the heat displayed.

Give Dan some money! Slightly out of spec AGP power is common enough and probably not dangerous. Like pretty much every other current video card, you can run the V Deluxe faster than stock speed. So the Ultra boards, when they hit the streets in September, will be quite alarmingly expensive.

There’s also a pair of video cables – one composite, one S-Video – included. But the frequency was set to MHz in order to provide high reliability. The videocards of this class provide quality images for the majority.

An S-Video lead will plug right in as normal, and a short adaptor cable’s included with a plug on one end to match the extra pin-holes and connect them up to a standard RCA composite socket on the other end of the cable.

But I’m sticking with my Leadtek. Make a phone call to the user-defined phone number. SmartDoctor can even monitor your AGP slot supply voltage and pop up a warning if it drops too low, and partially shut down your CPU when there’s nothing for it to do, to save power and reduce heat.

Proo Chipset Unless you’ve been disconnected from the net for a while now, you should know that the GeForce2 is NVIDIA’s latest and greatest graphics chipset that has all the bells and whistles that crown it currently the best 3D consumer graphics solution prl the market.

Sure, the gameability in XX32 is under an acceptable level, however the lower resolution in 32bit color ensures comfort while playing.

They’re often not that different, though. But, again, SmartDoctor doesn’t trigger when the voltage is way too low, asuw if it did then it’d probably be too late.

Competition – Asus AGP-V Pure Review

I do want to note that the utility is limited to MHz memory speed setting when the card was capable of higher settings. Undoubtedly, the main deterrent was the price, and the manufacturers were afraid that those cards would hardly sell. That’s why the complicity of the game is very high. Getting 3D vision working properly in all of your games will be a bit fiddly at best and may be impossible at worst, as dual-viewpoint graphics drivers still aren’t renowned for their compatibility.

This is all very well, I suppose, but the expected lifespan of any video card running at its stock speed is pretty much the same as the expected lifespan of a CPU – in other words, it’ll normally last until it’s worth nothing.


It does this, though, by switching focus away from whatever 3D program you’re running and popping up a warning. I turned the thermal protection feature off and kept on trucking; crashes came there none. Contrary to popular belief ASUS is not a novice in the graphic card market, but they are veterans.

If you want quality real-time hardware compression of high resolution which, in this case, means by high frame rate video, you still need a dedicated capture card. Interestingly that speed increase while overclocking is not so solid because MHz of memory is not enough for MHz graphics core. Just remember that this Pure version will be unable to play these movies on a TV as there is no video out.

The overclocked Quake 3 results po more different, as you’d expect given the lower overclock limit from the stock V software. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method.

The results were expectable. But, if you ask me, it’s a better idea to open your case up a bit and get some cooling air through. The “Pure” in the V’s name means this card doesn’t have any fancy extra connectors; like the Leadtek board I reviewed, it’s got a monitor output and that’s it.

Asus Aeus Software Driver Here we have the basic main information sheet that comes in about all drivers today. The card behaved itself perfectly wound up to this maximum speed, but only made it to a lousy
