Firstly, the test system. The GeForce 3 family comprises 3 consumer models: The Hercules comes with the usual Hercules driver CD which starts up with a nice menu system. Finally, going back to the Golden Sample aspect of things and taking a look at the name of the card, you can see that this card goes a bit further than the stock Ti clock speeds.

The clocks used were able to loop Aquamark without any problems are were perfectly stable. On an existing operating system installation it would just have been a matter of removing the old cards drivers, swapping cards and rebooting.
Also increased card clocks should show discernable performance increases unlike Unreal Tournament. Vertex and Pixel Shaders are two patented architectural advancements that allow for a multitude of effects. Retrieved Gefocre 25, Depending on the test, you can usually adjust the clocks a bit higher. The drivers used were DetonatorXP Although it’s not as radical an approach as a Kyro II ti50, the GeForce3 has the ability to determine, at least some of the time, when a pixel will be occluded, so the chip can avoid drawing unneeded pixels.
Yeforce up we have Quake 3.
GeForce3 Ti Radium? Untweaked out of the box performance is more than a match for any game at x resolution given the correct base platform. It’s the benchmark everyone loves to see and probably the biggest indicator of performance that everyone can relate to. It’s nice to see explicit support for NT4 here since many manufacturers dont consider NT4 to a be a good gaming operating system and this is ostensibly a gamers card, however a large range of games work perfectly well, the majority being OpenGL based for which NT4 geforcs always been a solid platform.
Worth nothing is the performance baseline of the results at all card clocks. Graphics Previous page Next page. It’s a shame that full VIVO capability couldn’t be added to the card since that would give it an added edge. GeForce 2 4 MX.
It’s a fairly old geforec at the moment as the performance figures are going to show us. On the CD there are online manuals, 3D tweaker which allows you to overclock the card, 3Deep which allows you to set up colour and monitor preferences, Also included are some Nvidia demos.
All that is lacking is a video input, something that I’ve never seen on a Hercules GeForce card yet. GeForce 3 adds multi-sampling anti-aliasing MSAA and Quincunx anti-aliasing methods, both of which perform significantly better than super-sampling anti-aliasing at the expense of quality.
With 8-tap anisotropic filtering enabled, distant textures can be noticeably sharper.
Top marks to Gainward and hopefully it will stay in my system for a little while longer! Views Read Edit View history. Click to find out more.
This is most observable at x where the required card fillrate is high and the increase in memory clocks giving higher memory bandwidth are helping. Before we go any further with the card itself, if you’d like a refresher on the Ti GPU or GeForce3 cards in general, Chris did an excellent job with the review of the Hercules Ti and covered all the bases with regards to GPU features, technical information and overview of the Gefoce and it’s iterations.
Let me know if it works for you! Performance in Quake 3 on current hardware is playable at all common resolutions. Conclusion We’re big fans of the GeForce3 here at Hexus.
Also, it’s worth noting that it was a straight run at the highest clocks possible.
