BrZ meldt dat t-break een review heeft gemaakt van de Creative GeForce2. Het kaartje heeft geen bijzondere opties en is IMHO dan ook niet interessant tenzij deze kaart erg snel in Nederland te vinden is of je heilig geloofd in Creative :
The 3D Blaster GeForce2 GTS reminds me a lot of the original GeForce 256. It was the fastest chip when it came out, but showed its excellence at higher resolutions. The drivers were not matured, the price-tag was heavy and Creative didn't bundle it with much software or hoo-haa like TV Out. Similarly, there's no denying that the GeForce 2 GTS is the fastest Graphics chip for gamers today. Again, it really starts showing its powers at higher resolutions, which by today's standards are of 1280x1024x32 or higher. But tell me, how many people actually play games at that resolution? I don't. I usually play at 1024x768x32, or occasionally at 1152x864x32. I doubt if I even switch my desktop above 1152x864 except for benchmarking.
Part of the reason for doing so is because I have a 17" monitor and refresh rates for resolutions above 1152x864 aren't very comfortable to the eye. I'm guessing that most of you have 17" monitors as well. And judging from the benchmarks, we can see that the GeForce PRO is close-enough to the GeForce 2 GTS for resolutions of 1152x768x32 and 1024x768x32. If you play games at resolutions below that, there is NO difference between the GeForce 2 and GeForce PRO.
I know that with time, people will switch to 19" Monitors and drivers for the GeForce 2 GTS will mature resulting in faster frame rates for all resolutions. And with time, prices for the GeForce 2 GTS will drop as well. Keep in mind that the new Voodoos are right around the corner so we might see the two giants battling for supremacy by cutting prices rapidly. Now that, would be a good time to buy a new Graphics card.
