In use, the most notable feature of the V Deluxe is that it’s a really really really fast 3D card. Just remember that this Pure version will be unable to play these movies on a TV as there is no video out. It makes me wonder if they have something to fear in showing us their unreleased products, as we’re basically the only site that isn’t afraid to tell anyone what we really think. I tapped on my fan and within a few seconds the monitor registered that the average fan speed had decreased. The Smart Doctor software is very useful as it gives you voltage and thermal information see below.

It might be using the relatively glacial setting that’s normally used when the computer’s idle; agl-v7700 it’s using the somewhat wgp-v7700 2D-application setting. Keep in mind that this is the “Pure” version that Asus makes and does not come with any type of video in or out. I decided to do a couple of tests with the thermal portion of the utility by checking the fan speed monitor and check the accuracy of the heat displayed.

Some people might not appreciate this but I certainly did as it answered many questions that I feel most people would care to know about when tweaking their video driver.

Cranking up the core speed doesn’t make a lot of difference, without the RAM bandwidth to push all of those zillion-pixel frames onto the screen. Execute other security control programs. With 20Gb and larger hard drives now quite embarrassingly inexpensive, you can easily enough get a drive that’ll hold half an hour or more of low-compression video.

Of cause, as you can see, that performance level of Asux Ultra remains unachievable here. Though at that time it was just one of the theoretically possible ways, and today many just play at this resolution with GeForce2 Ultra based agp-v77700.


In the test there are a lot of objects in the scene, each consisting of great number of polygons.

Further overclocking was impossible because of blocking in drivers, since with the frequency increase the system would have buzzed. It does this, though, by switching focus away from whatever 3D program you’re running and popping up a warning. The tweak utility is very basic but it does what you need it to do. Another item included that stood about the rest was the Asus manual for the V But this isn’t the power user feature that it might seem.

The following programs will help us to do it: This is, I think, mainly because the standard Quake 3 demos are of fairly hectic multiplayer action, and this and the more complex engine load up the CPU more and squelch out driver differences. Besides, it costs much less, than GeForce2 Ultra based card. Are GeForce2 Pro based cards be able to give such opportunity? The card has an ordinary cooler without a tachometer.

You can often measure better core overclocking improvements by dropping the resolution, depending on your CPU and the load a given game puts on it, but with a GeForce2 you’re then talking the difference between a zillion frames per second and a zillion and twelve.

It operates perfectly at X on ViewSonic P In the “other stuff” department, many cheapo cards’ software bundles are often forgettable enough that you can confidently slip the discs under the nearest convenient frosty drinks without once looking at the software.

Comparison points When you’ve got a chipset that’s being used by umpteen companies to make what therefore turn out to be pretty darn similar graphics cards, you end up with only three areas where cards can differ. You can also reach some detailed refresh settings from here. This wouldn’t be a problem, if the v5. I checked both cards out with Quake 2 in by resolution, 32 bit colour, using the lightweight standard demo2. Some GeForce2 boards have extra video outputs, some have video input, some have further fancy options.


And none of them are necessary, with a decently fast CPU.

The manual even surpassed the detail of Leadtek’s WFGF2 as it not only went over the basic details of installation but offered an incredible amount of detail on every driver setting, detailed usage of each utility and DVD player. But there’s not even a sniff of the actual numbers, and no information on the test system, beyond a strangled “16x12x32” legend that, I presume, means the tests were run in by in 32 bit colour.

You could be forgiven for thinking that SmartDoctor was an automatic overclocking system – that it dynamically wound up pto card clock speed to the highest setting that wouldn’t overheat it, and then jockeyed it around to keep under the temperature limit.

Take care of your valuable system to provide the best safety with.

But the frequency was set to MHz in order to provide high saus. Noticeably faster than the GeForce2 GTS it is, but at the resolutions you’re probably going to be using, its advantage will be small enough to make the price difference ridiculous.

My outlook on this issue is pretty simple.
