Bij Riva 3D is een review te vinden van de Guillemot 3D Prophet GeForce 256 videokaart. Naast de gebruikelijke Quake benchmarks hebben ze de kaart ook getest met de Viewperf benchmark voor OpenGL Workstation performance. De complete review kun je hier lezen.
The introduction of the GeForce has given users an option that's been lacking in earlier 2D/3D cards. Not only is the Guillemot GeForce Prophet a gamer's slice of heaven, it's also a dream come true for CAD users and 3D modelers and animators.
With 3D power that gives you insanely fast frame rates at higher resolutions in 32 bit color, throw in widespread developer support for upcoming transform and lighting with higher polygon counts, and you've got a sure bet that the Guillemot Prophet will be a hot, hot seller.
And don't be surprised when the GeForce becomes a big seller as a workstation add-in, or as an OEM favorite in the workstation marketplace. When you consider the ability of the GeForce Prophet to provide a low-cost, excellent alternative to even the $20,000 workstations, the $250 price tag seems like a bargain. Yes, we finally have a gaming card that doubles as a powerful 3D graphics solution. That makes Guillemot's naming of their GeForce product quite appropriate.
About the only complaint (and it's a minor one) is the lack of a full version game. But with easy installation and rock-solid stability, the GeForce Prophet gets very high marks from RIVA 3D.
