All of the ‘Cons’ listed below can be considered relatively minor. The chart below compares results with default settings, and with a core setting of MHz, and the memory set to MHz. 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. In the legend in the graph above, the system speed is represented by the first number, and bus speed by the second. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. I would have liked to see a slightly larger heat sink to go with the fan, but since core overclocking on GTS cards does not increase performance, it was not a big problem.

Full scene antialiasing FSAA can improve picture quality, but can also introduce some blurring of 3D objects.

Only memory overclocking had a significant effect on performance, and even then, the performance boost was marginal. Benchmarks were reduced significantly, but at lower resolutions the scores were still plenty good enough for gaming. Retail stores claim the cards are on backorder while the manufacturers claim that it is the retailer’s fault.

Both online and off-line, it seems that no one carries any GeForce cards. But it dlsa eliminate most artifacts present in 3D accelerated moving images. To get some basic numbers, I tested the Gladiac in three systems, with and without overclocking. Four months later, in January ofthe problem continues to exist.

No review would be complete without Quake III. Let’s go back in time a bit. A product’s announcement is usually followed by an implementation period of at least one month, right? However, one area ELSA has historically been 32jb in is market presence. Many consumers are excited to get one, regardless of price.

No more black screens, no more flashing textures, just good clean 3D acceleration! Some people will find FSAA irritating due to gladjac slight blurring that it introduces into the image.

But for folks with 19″ or smaller monitors, the 32MB model should be fine.

At higher resolutions and color depths, the performance difference between the two 3D-boosting methods is greatly reduced, as the GeForce’s fill rate becomes the bottleneck.

The graph below shows the numbers from the newest version of 3D Mark version 1. They have just about all the features you could want except maybe environmental bump mapping. Rating, Elsa Gladiac 32MB: 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 GLADIAC 511TWIN graphics card – GF2 MX – 32 MB Series

The newest Detonator-3 6. With a fill rate of 1.


The update worked without a hitch, and it fixed the incompatibility with the VT6X4 motherboard. The key to this goal: 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. Most features you 32nb want in a 3D card High quality construction Really good drivers and utilities finally!

The layout of the board was nice, and the hardware appeared well built. The image is sharper with the higher resolution, but more realistic with FSAA and a lower resolution.

Seem like a pipe dream? Getting a Glwdiac based card is next to impossible, causing you to throw in the towel. But at higher resolutions and 32 bit color, the Gladiac starts to become the limiting factor, and you can see the performance differences between test systems become much smaller.

Everything about the new “GPU” looks great: ELSA 6-year service warranty.
