3DHardware.net heeft een preview gepost van de Creative Labs GeForce Annihilator (zo gaat-ie in de VS heten). Op zit er niet zoveel opzienbarende info in deze preview, wel hebben ze een stukje over de verwachte overklokbaarheid van de GeForce 256:
This time around, nVidia have not supplied manufacturers with the solution on how to overclock the GeForce256 as they did with the TNT2. What's the reason for this? They don't want the same thing to happen with the GeForce256 as with the TNT2, meaning that many companies shipped TNT2 boards at ridiculous clock speeds while just getting a small yield. Creative Labs confirmed that their R&D team have successfully figured out how to overclock the GeForce256 and an overclocking slider will be supplied with the 3D Blaster GeForce256. How much you can overclock depends highly on the game. Dough Hopkins explained that there are roughly 100 - 500 pipeline stages depending on what you do. When overclocking, there is no chance for Creative Labs to know where in those stages things might go wrong. For a game that doesn't utilize T&L you might be able to overclock the GeForce256 by 10MHz (or more?) but in other games using other features you might not be able to overclock at all. One thing is certain though, the GeForce256 runs very hot, and you barely survive with the on-board fan and heatsink. So if you want to try and overclock a GeForce256 card make sure you have efficient and powerful cooling.
