"Eindelijk eens benchmarks van een echte board, en niet een reference plank. Er zit ook een leuke games bundle bij (je mag hem zelf samenstellen!) en TV-out. Hij overclockte goed en was duidelijk sneller dan de GeForce, hoewel slechts alleen duidelijk merkbaar in de hoge resoluties vanwege de beperkte memory bandwidth":
It's a bit hard to judge the GLADIAC right now, as it's the first retail card based on the GeForce 2 GTS chip that we've received. We certainly like the game bundle, and the performance of the GeForce 2 chip was never in doubt. Since ELSA decided to use the reference design, testing with the GLADIAC felt exactly like the reference board.
Based on the announcements we've seen from WinHEC, it certainly looks like the ELSA board is going to be one of the better cards out there. Not because of the performance, lets face it, any GeForce 2 card is going to be fast.
The reason we feel the GLADIAC is going to be one of the better boards is the added features that round out the package. On top of the game bundle, you've got ELSA's 6-year warranty. In addition, ELSA is seriously stepping up its retail presence this year, finding a board shouldn't be as difficult as it was in the past. With this comes the added convenience of being able to easily return the board if something goes wrong with it. As an added option, you can create your own home videos with the optional VIVO module.
