If you want quality real-time hardware compression of high resolution which, in this case, means by high frame rate video, you still need a dedicated capture card. Unfortunately, the limiting factor for current cards, at the high resolutions they’re made for, is RAM speed. Think of it as being like a speedometer that goes up to kilometres an hour but is on the dash of a 1. Video 3Digests Video cards: You can download movies of the various new demos from here , but not the demos themselves; some GeForce2 boards come with them, but the Leadtek and ASUS offerings don’t. And as you all know the main bottleneck is not the memory size, but a memory bus bandwidth. The tweak utility is very basic but it does what you need it to do.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: Some cards come with funky game bundles. Now, overheating a chip doesn’t mean it’ll be fried.
Getting to the setting-changer’s a bit of a pain, though. It’s the real deal. I don’t think this is likely to be a problem with anybody’s GeForce2 offerings, since the NVIDIA drivers on which all of the other driver packages are based are quite highly evolved.
ASUS, on the other hand, is more lackadaisical. In the test there are a lot of objects in the scene, each consisting of great number of polygons. So you’d, frankly, have to be a tad nuts to consider an Ultra, unless you’re definitely running by for all of your games.
The package comes bundled with a couple of utilities that caught my eye, Asus Smart Doctor and Tweak utility.
By far the best supporting material I’ve seen packaged with a graphics board. Or just a hung game. Both of them will work with NVIDIA’s plain driver sets, or with the drivers provided by their manufacturer, but neither of agp-v770 work with the other manufacturer’s driver set.
Its price corresponds to the high level as well. Its game “bundle” is good, because instead of giving you a pile of second-rate titles, it gives you one top-shelf one – Soldier of Fortune.
ASUS AGP-V Pro based on NVIDIA GeForce2 Pro
Assuming, of course, that you actually want the games in the bundle. You can get, for instance, an illegible white box intermittently flashing up on the screen. 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.
But in this case the board on GeForce2 MX turned to be the first. And none of them are necessary, with a decently fast CPU. For a recap of what we’ve observed on the previous GeForce2 boards reviewed, please refer to the links below. The ashs aren’t quite so bad if you have a smaller-than-normal cranium, but they still leave a lot to be desired as comfort eyewear.
There is a quite big difference between mainstream and high-end cards.
Asus AGP-V7700 Pure Review
So, video card manufacturers can produce different modification without changing the reference design, including a whole multimedia combine. That’s why one may to expect a performance gain when setting the board at higher frequency. That’s why the complicity of the game is very high.
Give Dan some money! Today I advise to buy GeForce2 Ultra based cards only for those who can afford it really. That’d defeat the reliability-enhancing purpose. This board belongs to High-End class and is intended for hardcore gamers.
Review: ASUS AGP-V Pure GeForce2 GTS graphics card
SmartDoctor has no way to tell whether your particular setup would run the card only a degree and a half above the slow-down temperature, and be perfectly stable. Let’s start with 2D-graphics. You can tell to do this when nothing’s happening that needs the full card power. Full frame rate DVD to i ass. This is all very agp-v7700, I suppose, but the expected lifespan of any video card running at its stock speed is pretty much the same as the expected lifespan of a CPU – in other words, it’ll normally last until it’s worth nothing.
The tweak utility is very basic but it does what you need it to do.
