crazyhorse zag dat er bij AnandTech een review geplaatst was van de Absolute Multimedia Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce DDR videokaart. Hoewel dit model een stuk goedkoper is dan andere DDR modellen is er wel op de 2D kwaliteit bezuinigd. In hogere resoluties zoals 1600x1200 was dit dan ook duidelijk merkbaar:
I know what many of you are thinking now: with so many good things going for it, why is the Outrageous 3D Graphics GeForce selling for about $25 less than the lower priced the competition? The answer is simple: quality. In this case, we are not talking about the quality of the production or the quality of the included chips, we are speaking of the 2D quality for it is here that Absolute Multimedia has appeared to skimped. Every card has filters between the RAMDAC and the VGA output of a card, in fact these are essential for the card function. Absolute Multimedia has apparently used these filters to cut corners. By cutting costs by using lesser quality filters, Absolute Multimedia has created a problem for itself when in higher resolutions such as 1600x1200. At these resolutions, text becomes unclear, graphics become blurry, and the screen remains almost indecipherable While this may not be a problem for many out there with smaller monitors, the low quality provides a definite draw back for those with larger monitors. In addition, even a buyer who uses lower resolutions may one day encounter this plague. As monitor prices continue to fall and larger screen sizes become more standard, upgrades are likely. It is a bad thought to think that your eyes may be hurting you one day because your DDR GeForce card manufacturer chose to cut corners.
