Eurogamer verrijkt ons leven met een review van de Annihilator Pro. Zoals inmiddels bekend mag zijn is dit een GeForce 256 met 150MHz DDR SGRAM, wat 'm de snelste videokaart van dit moment maakt:
In game the Annihilator Pro is extremely fast, and while most games may not support T&L acceleration directly yet, there is a performance increase due to the increased fill rate of the GeForce. It is even possible to turn on every feature at high bit depth and resolution and still maintain a reasonable framerate in games like Quake 3 Arena, although no hardcore gamer would want to play at such a low frame rate.
It is interesting to note that the test system used is only a P2-450 based machine. It is surprising to see such a performance increase despite this CPU limitation. Hopefully we should be upgrading the test platform next year (fortunately only days away now), and it will be interesting to see how the Annihilator Pro performs with a "real" CPU.
