Na Sharky Extreme en AGN Hardware heeft nu ook Thresh's Firingsquad een review van de Hercules Terminator Beast Supercharged gepost, de snelste D3D kaart van dit moment dankzij extra snel SGRAM en een hogere core clock. De bevindingen van TRS:
As you can see, the Terminator Beast SC is no performance slouch. On our OpenGL Quake II test, the card lags behind the industry-standard TNT - not too many people would be surprised there. In fact, this is probably what a lot of people would assume a Savage3D would pull. However, throw Direct3D into the mix (D3D is also one of the TNT's strongest points), and the story takes an interesting twist! Half Life managed to stay within 2 frames per second of the TNT at all times, and even beats it on the high-resolution 1024x768 test. Very impressive.
Then comes 3DMark, the new standard in testing for Direct3D. Here, we see the Terminator Beast consistently outperform the TNT in both 800x600 and 1024x768. Who would have thought? What was originally introduced as a modest low-budget 3D accelerator, the Savage3D shows some real muscle, and in some instances takes even the vaunted TNT for a ride.
