Na Riva 3D en Tech Extreme heeft nu ook GamePC een review klaar van de Asus V7700 GeForce2 GTS kaart. De kaart wist een maximale core / memory snelheid te trekken van 240/390, net zoveel als de Gladiac van Elsa eerder liet zien. Qua software komt de kaart geleverd met SmartDoctor tweaking utilities, DVD2000 DVD Player en 2 full games. Omdat de V7700 ook vrijwel hetzelfde is als nVidia's reference design was de performance vergelijkbaar met de eerdere GeForce2 GTS reviews.
Basically, if you already own a GeForce DDR, there's no reason to upgrade unless you need to have the latest and greatest at all times. The differences between the GeForce SDR and GeForce2 at high resolutions are apparent, but not enough so to toss away your old cards on a whim. Folks with older TNT2 Ultra's or Voodoo3's will show large performance differences, and perhaps should start saving their pennies for one of these bad boys, or looking to pick up older GeForce cards up for discounted prices nowadays.
The V7700 is a fine example of a solid card based on a great chip, all packaged together for a nice overall package. It wasn't really faster than any other GeForce2 we've had our hands on, but it is definitely the most complete GeForce2 yet. Innovative Cooling, nice software utilities, and an included software DVD player, and the thing just performs really well, what more can you ask for?
