Well it's obvious that a GeForce 3 is a GeForce 3. If there's one thing we've learned from
the past it's that almost all nVidia cards (from the GeForce 256 to the
GeForce 3) with the same GPU perform nearly identical to each other. The
only thing that differentiates one card from another are basically the extra's which
are included and not the performance.
The audience VisionTek is aiming for with their card are the ones who are
only interested in performance. With everything else being secondary the VisionTek GeForce 3
delivers, and delivers really well. If you're one of these people, then this card IS
the one for you. If you're more of a casual gamer though, or have a GeForce
2 class card already, it might be better for you to tough it out for a
while. Wait until the fan and get the NV25 a.k.a GeForce 3 Ultra, Radeon 2 or maybe Kyro
3 when the DX8 games start to be released en masse!
A look to the games secion on nVidia's site points to
a bunch of games in the
works, some of which look really amazing, that designed specifically with the Geforce 3 in mind.
For instance; Inevitable Evolution, X-Isle: Dinosaur Island, Crazy Car Championship, 4x4 Evolution, Aquanox,
Ballistics, Dronez, Everglade Rush, Incoming Forces, Independence War 2, Neverwinter Nights, and Silicon
|Independence War 2
||Silicon Dreams Soccer
||X-Isle: Dinosaur Island|
|Crazy Car Championship
Since these games are not yet quite available, the true
abilities of this Geforce 3 will have to lie in wait for
just a little while longer. Hopefully by that time the
price for the Visiontek Geforce 3 will have dropped to a more affordable level. That said,
even the demo's of Aquanox and X-Isle are amazingly impressive so it's going to
be a tough wait for sure!
