Chris van Voodoo Extreme heeft een review van de Hercules Terminator BEAST gebakken. Hier wat stuff over de standaard BEAST vs de BEAST Supercharged:
he original BEAST has 8MB of SDRAM clocked at 100MHz, and a 250MHz RAMDAC. It supports resolutions up to 1600x1200x16bit@85Hz and 1280x1024x32bit@75Hz. The Savage3Dís claim to fame is S3TC, a texture compression scheme that allows huge textures to be rendered at insane speeds with little to no loss in image quality - 200MB of textures in one scene are possible...letís see AGP do that. It also provides hardware motion-compensation for DVD playback, but since I donít have a DVD drive, and that doesnít relate to gaming, Iíll let you take that at face value. The same goes for TV-out.
The SuperCharged is effectively identical to its older sibling, except for the major fact that it sports fast SGRAM instead of slower SDRAM. This allowed Hercules to safely increase the clock speed from 100MHz to 120MHz - much closer to the Savage3Dís rated specification of 125MHz. How much of a difference does this make? Well, the benchmarks tell it better than I ever could. Just to make things interesting, I got a pre-production mini-Lasagna fan from Tennmax and stuck it on the SuperCharged, to find out just how well this card suits us overclockers (as we all know, itís one hot little bitch with its stock heatsink). So without further ado:
