Type Of Review: Videocards
Expect that in weeks to come, the retail shops will be flooded with GeForce 3 cards of all sorts and the prices of previous NVIDIA-based products to be slashed dramatically to usher in the new ruler over all.
In this review, we are grateful to receive a press launch kit from ELSA, a card that is based on the early A3 revision of the NV20 chip. While we did not run into any difficulties with this card, the A5 revision is slated to be the production chip, solving certain OpenGL issues.
Indeed, there are plenty of feature articles on the capabilities of the GeForce 3 card, and many really comprehensive ones already written, but still we have opted to include a small (*ahem*) overview of the important features before coming to the absolute impressions of the card.
Hence, like in all long reviews, let me break it up into sections and you can jump right to it:
- Background: The History That Shaped Tomorrow
- Features Overview
- Card Bundle and Test Setup
