Het volk achter nV News heeft een review online gemieterd van de populaire 3D Blaster Annihilator Pro van Creative. Interessant aan de review zijn de vele benchmarks die gedraaid zijn, van GLQuake tot Kingpin, en ook 3D WinMark 2000 en 3D Mark 2000. De complete review lees je hier.
The benchmark results make it quite obvious that the Creative Labs Annihilator Pro is an extremely fast graphics card that can extend the life of a gaming PC. With an estimated retail price of $299 for the Annihilator Pro and $249 for the Annihilator, these cards aren't cheap. However, if your systems feeling a little sluggish and you feel the need to upgrade, an Annihilator Pro easily offers a greater return on investment than upgrading to a faster processor.
In many cases, you will feel that you purchased a more powerful system. During the past 15 months I've made the transition from the TNT, to the TNT2 Ultra, to the GeForce 256 SDR, and now to the Annihilator Pro. Each card was able to breath new life into my PC. For example, in Quake 2, at 1152x864 in 32-bit color, my frame rate on the TNT was 22 fps and is now 88 fps on the Annihilator Pro. That's an increase of 300 percent!
