Marcel meldt dat Silvino Orozco van Tom's Hardware Guide een review heeft geschreven van de Asus V7700 pure. Deze kaart is snel (duh) maar niet sneller dan een willekeurige andere GeForce2 (duh ), daarom heeft Asus gelukkig wel iets gedaan om dit kaartje boven de rest uit te laten steken: Hardware Monitoring :
Asus has always been known to go above and beyond the competition when it comes to the quality of their product as they put extra development time into their custom designs. This time around about the only noticeable feature that you can see on this board is the slightly improved thermal solution over the reference design that most companies are using. Keep in mind that this is the "Pure" version that Asus makes and does not come with any type of video in or out. I also noticed that the backside of the board didn't come with a connection for the VR Glasses so I'm a bit puzzled as to if they will support this feature as they claim to be able to on their website but not on the retail box itself. Regardless the board layout looked clean and on par with what you would normally expect from Asus.
The contestants in this comparison are all very close together from price to performance. The things that currently place each competitor apart from the others are added features; as quality, performance and cost are essentially dead even. Although Asus made a strong effort to obtain the title of the best GeForce2 card and had a few minor perks over my previous winner the Leadtek WFGF2, it fell short of the Leadtek board as it missed the major feature of video out that Leadtek offers. Although the prices are dead even among this group, the Leadtek just flat out offers more bang for the buck and that's why it's still my choice for best GeForce2 solution available.
