Guillemot zegt als eerste een TNT2 kaart gereleased te hebben die wereldwijd verkrijgbaar is. Guillemot is niet al te sterk hier in de polder dus het wordt nog ff afwachten welk merk TNT2 (Diamond?) als eerste de grenzen van ons landje binnen zal treden. Ik zal niet lullen, hier de info uit de press release:
Guillemot is proud to announce that, as of tomorrow, the Maxi Gamer Xentor will be the first RIVA TNT2™ based board to hit the retail shelves worldwide. Once again, Guillemot reaffirms its aggressive position in the North American market, leading the way with new technology.
"With the Maxi Gamer Phoenix, Guillemot proved that we have what it takes to be a market leader," says Alain Pakiry, Vice-President for Guillemot. "With the Xentor, we have once again clearly differentiated ourselves from our competitors by having the best technology at the best price. The graphics industry is an extremely aggressive business and not many companies are able to move as fast as we do."
The Maxi Gamer Xentor, based on the RIVA TNT2™ new generation chipset from NVIDIA, offers stunningly realistic and smooth animations in 3D games that no other card at this price point is able to compete with.
According to Eric Lizotte of GA-Source, "with this card, I was able to play Unreal at 1024x768 without feeling like I was under a strobe light. That to me just about says it all. In that same vein, the texture size available to the Maxi Gamer Xentor is more than 50 times greater than what ANY 3DFX based card is currently capable of."
