Toen ik bij AnandTech aan het rondsurfen was kwam ik er achter dat één van de buddy's van Anand, Matthew Witheiler een review van de Creative Labs 3D Blaster Annihilator Pro geupt heeft. Hij is best te spreken over het kaartje aangezien het redelijk goed te overklokken is en het setje drivers van Creative Labs volgens hem ook goed in elkaar steekt:
Many of the DDR based GeForce cards on the market are almost indistinguishable from one another. Many contain the same features, options and rarely differ in quality. Creative Labs, however, stands a bit out of the pack due to its high availability, fast overclocked speeds, and unique driver set. First, let's examine the features of the card which make it unique.
What the 3D Blaster Annihilator Pro lacks in originality of board design, it makes up for with efficient cooling. It is always a pleasant surprise to have a card outperform its predecessors and Creative Labs did not disappoint. Also noteworthy is the fact that the reference design, even though it lacks some of the advanced features found on non-reference boards, cuts the cost and enhances the roll out time of a card. It was a bit surprising to find that Creative Labs did not include any TV-out support, a feature commonly found in DDR boards of this price. If you want to use the included WinDVD DVD decoder software to display DVD movies on your television, you are out of luck. The 2D quality of the board was fine at resolutions as high as 1600x1200, meaning that even larger monitors will be able to take advantage of the 3D Blaster Annihilator Pro's DDR power.
