Deze kan er nog wel bij: Tweak 3D heeft nog een review online gegooid van de Xentor32 Ultra TNT2 kaart. Check hem hier.
What's to be said here? After all, it's a TNT2. The image quality is excellent, crisp, and clear. As my monitor's peak resolution is 1280x1024, I can't comment on the extreme resolutions; however, I can say that up to 1280x1024, the Xentor 32 delivered, in both 16- and 32-bit. Working on the Desktop, the TNT2 is second only to the Matrox G200 and G400, which is nothing too surprising. Still, the Xentor 32's 2D acceleration is fast, with no noticable image distortion - really a given these days, especially with higher-end chips.
As for 3D, this card is about as good as it gets. 3D worlds are rendered with sharp lines, vivid colors, and smooth animations. Playing games is a joy. Q3 Test is, or course, a given. In 32-bit color, it's absolutely stunning. Rollcage was great, as well. Even at 1280x1024 in 16-bit, the game was fast, Fast, FAST. I noticed that some of the smoke effects were a tad dithered and banded, so I dropped it into 1024x768, switched to 32-bit, and all was good: more than fast enough and chock full of eye-candy.
Okay... so how 'bout a few others? I tried to test a broad range of games with the Xentor 32 - some Direct3D and some OpenGL - in order to get a feel for the board's overall usability. The consensus? Well... Half-Life looked great, as did Need For Speed III. Shogo and Descent 3? Gorgeous. Kingpin, Expendable, and Unreal? Not a problem. The rendering in all of these games was great.
Hands down, the Xentor 32 dishes out some of the best image quality I've seen. Simple as that.
