PC Powerhouse heeft een review van de Guillemot Maxi Gamer Phoenix in elkaar gepleurd. Zoals bekend een kaart heeft deze kaart een Banshee aan boord.
Hier wat info over de performance (ze hebben een hele zooi benchmarks van Banshee, TNT en V2):
I was quite surprised at the speed this card has in 2D and Direct3D. Windows redraws were fast with no studdering, while dragging produced no artifacts onscreen. Wintune98 showed that this card is nearly as fast at 2D as the Canopus Spectra 2500 TNT based video card. What was truly amazing was the Direct3D tests. Wintune98 recorded about a 50% increase in performance over the TNT. Simply put, if you want a fast 2D card with excellent Direct3D performance, you can't go wrong with this card.
Now for the let down. For some strange reason I couldn't get OpenGL to run very well with this card. After downloading the latest Beta from 3Dfx, and renaming the file to Opengl32.dll (to replace the existing driver under Windows\system folder), I still couldn't get very good performance witn Wintune98. Using the Glide engine did produce excellent numbers in 3DMark99, beating the Canopus TNT by small margines. If you looking for a good video card to pump up performance in games like Quake2, Unreal, and Half-Life, then this card is definately not for you. Just check out the benchmarks below in Quake2 and you'll see what I mean.
