Once again, you are anxious to get one, regardless of cost. Setting FSAA to ‘full’ did not improve image quality over the middle setting to my eye. No review would be complete without Quake III. The fact is, that any type of 3D hardware needs software support. But for folks with 19″ or smaller monitors, the 32MB model should be fine. At higher resolutions and color depths, the performance difference between the two 3D-boosting methods is greatly reduced, as the GeForce’s fill rate becomes the bottleneck. Clearly, CPU speed has a big effect on the Gladiac’s performance.

ELSA 6-year service warranty. The newest Detonator-3 6.
However, one area ELSA has historically been weaker in is market presence. The chart below compares results with default settings, and with a core setting of MHz, and the memory set to MHz.
Setting FSAA to ‘full’ did not improve image quality over the middle setting to my eye. The next thing I wanted to check was if the PIII optimizations would fare better with a higher clock speed.
In an effort to help you, the consumer, decide if you should go to your local computer store and buy goadiac of these screaming fast video cards, we are going to take a look and see how gkadiac GLADIAC performs, overclocks and rates overall.
Some people will find FSAA irritating due to the slight blurring that it gladixc into the image. Obviously, the memory speed, rather than the core speed, is more of a bottleneck for GeForce2 GTS cards. The layout of the board was nice, and the hardware appeared well built. In the legend in the graph above, the system speed is represented by the first number, and bus speed by the second.
I installed the newer 5. Log in Don’t have an account?
Unlike our earlier experiences testing GeForce cards, the newer Detonator drivers 5. No more black screens, no more flashing textures, just good clean 3D acceleration! Many consumers are excited to get one, regardless of price.
The ELSA ‘Gladiac’ video card has been out for awhile, but we had not taken a careful look at it until now. Everything about the new “GPU” looks great: I used Coolbits, built-into the Detonator drivers, to do the overclocking.

But for folks with 19″ or smaller monitors, the 32MB model should be fine. Full scene antialiasing FSAA can improve picture quality, but can also introduce some blurring of 3D objects. Benchmarks were reduced significantly, but at lower resolutions the scores elsx still plenty good enough for gaming. But it does eliminate most artifacts present in 3D accelerated moving images. The card did not give me any problems at that speed. Only memory overclocking had a significant effect bladiac performance, and even then, the performance boost was marginal.
This market presence will only continue to spread with time, as on the 4th of May all Fry’s Electronics stores should carry the card and soon to follow are distributors, meaning that Egghead. All of the ‘Cons’ listed below can be considered relatively minor. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. The system booted into Windows without problems, but would not run any 3D application without hanging. The graph below shows the numbers from the newest version of 3D Mark version 1.
ELSA GLADIAC 511TWIN graphics card – GF2 MX – 32 MB Series
All three know that if a new, better product is due out in a few months the consumer is more likely to wait, hurting sales in all three departments. Clearly, CPU speed has a big effect on the Gladiac’s performance. Overclocking the Gladiac did not have a dramatic effect on it’s Direct 3D performance. V-sync off, sound disabled, geometry and detail set to maximum, lightmap, demo When overclocking the memory on the Gladiac alone, up from MHz to MHz, the 3D Mark scores went from toor about four and a half percent xx It is for this reason that cards are already on their way to store shelves.
