Chris Angelini van Sharky Extreme heeft een review geschreven van de Hercules 3D Prophet II GeForce2 GTS-kaart. Zij testten de 32MB versie. Pagina's lang benchmarken zij de nieuwe Hercules, om dan tot de conclusie te komen dat deze even snel is als de ELSA Gladiac (wow!). Het overclocken was niet zo'n groot succes als zij gehoopt hadden, maar we hebben al vaker gehoord dat Guillemot's heatsinks niet helemaal doen waarvoor ze bedoeld zijn.
As one of the first manufacturers to release a GeForce2-based card, Hercules has reaped the same benefits as ELSA. With a unique design, TV-out standard, and the Hercules brand name, the 3D Prophet II GTS is sure to sell with high-performance gaming systems.
It's always important to remember what your mother taught you when you were a child. "Never judge a book by its cover," right? We had high hopes for the 3D Prophet II GTS in terms of overclocking, but this time it just didn't pan out. For what it's worth though, the card sure looks good!
We expected similar performance between GeForce2 boards, and that is exactly what we were served. It's obvious that there won't be any purchasing decisions based on speed, since the differences are negligible. Simply put, any of the GeForce2-based cards will deliver the highest performance available. The TV-out on the 3D Prophet II GTS gives Guillemot the edge as far as value is concerned, as does an excellent DVD decoder to take advantage of the GeForce2's motion compensation feature.
