Onze Russische vrienden van iXBT-Hardware schreven een uitgebreide review van de Asus V7700 GeForce2 videokaart. Het exemplaar wat zij in handen kregen bleek extreem goed overklokbaar te zijn; het geheugen draaide op 410MHz en de core op 240MHz. Het resultaat was een winst van 30% in Quake 3 @ 1600 x 1200.
So, ASUS AGP-V7700 is a mass product and the tests proved that it doesn't yield to NVIDIA reference card at all. Although ASUS AGP-V7700 is practically a complete copy of the reference design, it is much more overclockable. We have to stress here that the card's overclockability is unique for each particular piece. However, we won't hesitate a second and recommend this card for those of you who always buy the newest fastest gaming products.
If you have NVIDIA Riva TNT2 Ultra or NVIDIA GeForce256 with SDR memory, then ASUS AGP-V7700 will be a good upgrading solution for you.
If you have a graphics card on NVIDIA GeForce256 with DDR memory, we wouldn't be so anxious to replace it. Try to wait till the official launching of DirectX 8.0 and look what changes will happen after that. And in the meanwhile the greater part of GeForce2 GTS potential still remains undemanded, because there are not so many games yet, which could involve all the feature of NVIDIA's new chip.
