HardOCP heeft een review on line gezet van de Visiontek GeForce2 Ultra. Visiontek is een nieuwkomer op de retailmarkt voor videokaarten; voorheen maakte Visiontek alleen OEM-producten, maar nu willen ze ook wel eens in de spotlights staan. We zullen in de toekomst dus nog wel meer van deze fabrikant horen. Deze GeForce2 Ultra heeft 64MB DDR-RAM en is bijna gelijk aan nVidia's reference design. De Visiontek GeForce2 Ultra is geklokt op 250MHz core/458MHz memory. Overklokken lukte tot 318/515MHz, maar redelijk stabiel was het geheel bij 290/490MHz.
Well, there is not much to say except the Visiontek GeForce2 Ultra is one badass mofo. ( I want to see that quoted on their website!! ) Seriously though, this card is without a doubt the best card for the aggressive gamer that can be bought today. That is just all there is to it. It is the best. High rez, low rez, medium rez, it does it all. Couple that with Flat Panel support and digital video in and out features and I really don't know what else you could want in a Vid Card besides dual heads.
As we mentioned before though, who needs it? Really gamers only, and then it might be more than anyone needs. I would certainly love to wake up on Christmas morning and find one of these Visiontek cards stuffed in my stocking. While it hefts a big price in the neighborhood of US$400, it will give you braggin' rights and smooth gameplay for some time to come.
As fast as the products cycles happen nowadays (for NVIDIA at least), it is certain that the GeForce2 Ultra will not be the fastest card around here soon. If you are looking for an upgrade card from something equal or prior to a TNT2 or Voodoo3, I say go for it. You will be pleasantly surprised in the difference. If you currently have a Voodoo5, GeForce or GeForce2 card you might want to wait for the NEXT round of cards to come out. Not necessarily that you want to put down the money to buy one, but the next big thing will certainly erode the price of the GeForce2 Ultra to a more reasonable level.
