ANG Hardware heeft een review van de Creative Labs 3D Blaster Banshee gepost. Nou zijn al die Banshee kaarten zo'n beetje hetzelfde (net zoals de V2's en TNT's), so wtf is er speciaal aan de CL Banshee:
There a few other nice features about the card that are *Creative Exclusives*. For starters, the 3D Blaster Banshee comes with support for resolutions of 1152x864, 1792x1344, and 1856x1392. These resolutions may seem odd to some of you, but others will recognize these resolutions as industry standards. For example: 1152x864 is designed to be able to view exactly 2 full page documents on the same screen. This is a nice touch considering that most other Banshee boards skip this resolution and go from 1024x768 to 1280x1024.
Another Creative exclusive is the Glide Switcher, which is available from the SoundBlaster web site here. "Glide switcher?" you may ask. Well, this fixes a problem that roots back to 3Dfx. It seems that Voodoo 2 owners cannot install a Banshee based board without overwriting the existing Glide and OpenGL drivers for the Voodoo2. The Glide Switcher allows the user to switch between the two devices without re-installing the drivers for either. Naming the device driver files with the same name was either an oversight on the part of 3Dfx, or an attempt to get users to buy both a Banshee for 2D and a Voodoo 2 (or SLI) for 3D. Either way, Creative has found a way to easily switch between the two...leaving the choice up to you as the consumer.
