To get some basic numbers, I tested the Gladiac in three systems, with and without overclocking. No more black screens, no more flashing textures, just good clean 3D acceleration! I ran these tests with and without overclocking, and compared the results. This market presence will only continue to spread with time, as on the 4th of May all Fry’s Electronics stores should carry the card and soon to follow are distributors, meaning that Egghead. ELSA 6-year service warranty. The next thing I wanted to check was if the PIII optimizations would fare better with a higher clock speed.

In an effort to help you, the consumer, decide if you should go to your local computer store and buy one of these screaming fast video cards, we are going to take a look and see how the GLADIAC performs, overclocks and rates overall. The chart below compares results with default settings, and with a core setting gladoac MHz, and the memory set to MHz.

All three know that if a new, better product is due out in a few months the consumer gladiwc more likely to wait, glzdiac sales in all three departments. Full scene antialiasing FSAA can improve picture quality, but can also introduce some blurring of 3D objects. As NVidia continues to further implement things like improved FSAA support, and level of detail bias controls in their driver set, there are less and less reasons for recommending a Voodoo5 card.
All of the ‘Cons’ listed below can be considered relatively minor. V-sync off, sound disabled, geometry and detail set to maximum, lightmap, demo If you have a very large monitor, like 21″, and you expect to run your Gladiac at high resolutions like xthen you will want the 64MB model.
The newest Detonator-3 6. ELSA cards have consistently received praise for high manufacturing quality as well as superior product support. The key to this goal: In the legend in the graph above, the system speed is represented by the first number, and bus speed by the second. This market presence will only continue to spread with time, as on the 4th of May all Fry’s Electronics stores should carry the card and soon to follow are distributors, meaning that Egghead.
Obviously, the memory speed, rather than the core speed, is more of a bottleneck for GeForce2 GTS cards. The image is sharper with the higher resolution, but more realistic g,adiac FSAA and a lower resolution.

The next thing I wanted to check was if the PIII optimizations would fare better with a higher clock speed. Elea used Coolbits, built-into the Detonator drivers, to do the overclocking.
ELSA 6-year service warranty. Overclocking the Gladiac did not have a dramatic effect on it’s Direct 3D performance. Setting FSAA to ‘full’ did not improve image quality over the middle setting to my eye.
However, one area ELSA has historically been weaker in is market presence. In tests with the Celeron-2, the CPU is obviously the rate limiting factor in performance, since changing the resolution and color depth had little effect on Direct 3D performance.
It is for this reason that cards are already on their way to store shelves. Clearly, CPU speed has a big effect on the Gladiac’s performance. I installed glladiac newer 5.

The graph below shows the results. I think for most people, it will be a toss-up whether you prefer x with 32 bit color and no FSAA, or x with 16 bit color and mid-level FSAA.
Not only is the new and impressive GPU not so new and impressive any more, but there are only a few months left before the next generation GPU comes out.
Some people will find FSAA irritating due to the slight blurring that it introduces into the image.

But for folks with 19″ or smaller monitors, the 32MB model should be fine. With a fill rate of 1. I ran these tests with and without overclocking, and compared the results.
Many consumers 322mb excited to get one, regardless of price.
The system booted into Windows without problems, but would not run any 3D application without hanging.
