You just end up with a computer that runs for an unpredictable amount of time and then crashes, over and over, and unless you pop the hood and specifically check out the video card fan you’ll go bananas trying to figure out the problem. But this isn’t one of them. They’re often not that different, though. Each manufacturer has its own strategy to make their card distinguishable from the competition; Hercules has added RAM-heatsinks, Creative Labs has reduced their prices, and ASUS has decided to tackle this issue with features, and lots of them. The highest performance in 3D graphics; Perfect quality of 2D-graphics at high resolutions; Good overclockability; Support of many new technologies; Excellent card implementation as for quality and reliability. And they pretty much all have 32 megabytes of video memory, though some pricey units have 64Mb, which can actually make a difference in games with tons and tons of texture data, but still often doesn’t. If it is, what brand do you recommend of all the available cards?

Now, it’s not like you’re paying a million dollars for this 3D system, and for the money it’s excellent.

Performance Expectations Page 8: That’s why today we won’t talk much about it. That was a bit disappointing.

Those cards had some horizontal waves when working at some resolutions and at definite frame rates. 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 at least it lets you crank the clocks past the excessively conservative limits set by the ASUS overclock utility.


There is also a blank space for a connector for digital monitors. It’s the real deal. As for 2D quality, I have something to say here. So don’t get too excited about the Ultra.

ASUSTeK company was first to release a video card on this chip which entirely corresponds to High-End class in the segment of game videocards. The auto-notification system serves as your private security or reception system. If you activate the SmartDoctor thermal protection and the card gets hot enough for it to kick in – as it did, during my testing – it seems to select a very low clock speed. 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.

For a recap of what we’ve observed on the previous GeForce2 boards reviewed, please refer to the links below. But, again, SmartDoctor doesn’t trigger when the voltage is way too low, because if it did then it’d probably be too late.

But, if you agp-7v700 me, it’s a better idea to open your case up a bit and get some cooling air through. In this case, it lurks on the reverse of the card, leaving the card layout practically identical to that of the NVIDIA reference design. And at last, we can witness their appearing.

At the slightly elevated “default” speed, its score for the Quake 2 test was a comparatively miserable 70 frames per second. Getting 3D vision working properly in all of your games will be adus bit lro at best and may be impossible at worst, as dual-viewpoint graphics drivers still aren’t renowned for their compatibility.

Nevertheless, it’s always interesting to look at a new product from such a famous manufacturer, moreover, the mass sales of ASUS AGP-V Ultra are just about to start.


Comparison points When you’ve got a chipset that’s being used by umpteen companies to make what therefore turn out to be pretty darn similar graphics cards, you end up with only three areas where cards can differ.

You can also reach some detailed refresh settings from here. In English, assu means it makes it easier to punch up the apparent brightness of the image, without turning all of your blacks grey or burning out everything agp-v700. But there are differences. The DVD player was tested and everything worked well as the player offered all the standard features and adjustments that most will need when watching a DVD movie on their PC.

A closer look at that cooler, though, ahp-v7700 that the fan’s got three wires, instead of the usual two. The trouble with reference drivers, though, is that they don’t let you use non-standard features like funny video connectors and 3D glasses – the stuff you’re paying for, if you buy a V Deluxe instead of an ordinary GeForce2 GTS board.

Asus AGP-V Pure Review –

In use, the most notable feature of the V Deluxe is that it’s a really really really fast 3D card. Both of them will work with NVIDIA’s asu driver sets, or with the drivers provided by their manufacturer, but neither of them’ll work with the other manufacturer’s driver set. They’re often not that different, though.
