Anand heeft een review van de 3DLabs Oxygen GVX1, een professionele 3D modelling kaart, op z'n site gezet. Interessant is de vergelijking met de veel goedkopere GeForce, die blijkt in veel genamelijk namelijk gewoon bruut sneller te zijn dan de Oxygen:
Unfortunately there is a threat to 3Dlabs and the GVX1, it is in the form of NVIDIA's GeForce. We have already made it clear that the GeForce obviously has some issues with wireframe AA rendering as well as dropping pixels in various rendering situations. A driver fix has yet to appear and we most likely won't see on for the GeForce, if one is even possible. NVIDIA doesn't want the GeForce competing on this level, instead they have another child to bring into the professional market, the Quadro.
The Quadro supposedly isn't plagued by the accuracy and quality problems of the GeForce, but the chip itself isn't very different from the GeForce at all. The main difference seems to be the drivers. NVIDIA isn't letting just anyone produce Quadro based cards either, only ELSA, a company that has a long history of specializing in workstation level products and drivers. So don't be too surprised if NVIDIA's Quadro comes out to be a very good competitor in this market, provided that the drivers are sound and capable of meeting the demands of professional users.
