HardOCP heeft een review van de 32MB Elsa Erazor III in elkaar geflanst. Dit is een 'gewone' TNT2 die op 125/140MHz draait, niet de rapste dus. Maar HardOCP heeft de kaart voorzien van een monster cooler en hebben alles uit de kaart geprobeerd te persen, maar verder dan 155/150Mhz kwamen ze niet... Check de review maar.
Well, the Elsa ErazorIII turned out to be quite a card. I wish they would have been a little more aggressive and installed an active cooling system straight from the factory. I think that any card in the $180+ range should come with a good $5 fan and heatsink unit.
Did the card do what it was advertised to do? Yes, it lived up to the standards by which it was produced and more. It more than produced a gaming experience that was enjoyable and smoothly playable. The frame rates were excellent as was the color allowed.
It is an overclockers' card of choice? Not if you are looking at breaking into the 100+ Front Side Bus range. The card was tremendously stable at AGP bus speeds of below 82MHz. So if you are running a Celeron or non-OC'd PII-350 or faster, then this card would surely fit your needs if you want the TNT2 chipset.
If you are looking to dig into some serious OC on a PIII and see AGP speeds that exceed 82MHz, which is extremely hard for MOST TNT2 cards, I would not suggest the Elsa ErazorIII for the HardCore OC peeps.
The card took major modifications to get it to HOCP standards. Are our expectations and hardware standards too high? Maybe so, but they have been met before. But let's face it, most of you out there are not going to be faced with this soon, or are you?
