Bij iXBT Hardware is nu ook een review te vinden van de nVidia GeForce 2 GTS. Over het algemeen was men erg enthousiast over de nieuwe GPU, maar, zoals we al eerder hebben gezien, bleek hij beperkt te worden door zijn geheugen:
The graphics accelerator launched by NVIDIA is the most powerful one today; it features the whole bunch of advantages and valuable peculiarities. However, we can't leave out its serious drawback: slow 166MHz DDR memory, which serves as a brake for the entire graphics subsystem. In fact, we may hope to see new NVIDIA GeForce2 GTS with faster memory, but now we cannot promise anything definite. And in the meanwhile we can state that in 32bit color mode this card hardly managed to make a significant break-through compared to GeForce256 DDR. Nevertheless, the performance gain is undeniable and quite tangible, actually. Of course, the gaming performance has also risen: you may even feel at home at 1280x1024x32 in some cases.[break]Verder had iXBT geen goed woord over voor FSAA:[/break]As for Full-Scene Anti-Aliasing, NVIDIA made a blunder here. We don't want to discuss all the details of this failure hoping that NVIDIA will keep its word and improve the situation in the next driver version. When we will review mass graphics pieces made on NVIDIA GeForce2 GTS we will return to this problem. However, we have to admit that today's FSAA may be regarded as total absence of this function, because it will hardly be a worthy thing with the performance reduction it causes (except the resolution equal to 640x480).
