Elsa Gladiac - Elsa Gladiac
Wed Jun 21, 2000 | 3:28P| PermaLink
"In all of the newer Elsa cards, lies support for Elsa's Revelator glasses. Although these glasses do not enhance the quality of gaming much, they are a nice feature to have on any card... especially for bragging rights. Aside from that, The Gladiac also has the GeForce2 GPU, which is undoubtedly the fastest 3D processor available right now for us gamers until the Voodoo5 6000 comes along. The price point the GF2 is at right now is too high for all but the hardcore gamers but I think that when Nvidia announces their new chipset, prices will fall dramatically. The Gladiac has 32MB of DDR SGRAM on board and 64MB models will be available soon. Elsa has no plans to release SDRAM models since the Gladiac is such a high performance board and lower bandwidth memory would only drag down speed at high resolutions. High resolution gameplay was what the GF2 was designed to excel at with it's insanely high 1.6gigatexel fillrate. There looks to be support for additional video features on t! he card such as Video-In and TV Tuners but none are installed on the board I received. The S-Video out port on the GeForce is not really improved over its predecessors and is the same one found on most of today's cards. This is not a good thing because it is low quality TV-out that doesn't really matter since no one I know uses a TV for playing games. What you do want a TV-out for is DVD playback and with the built-in motion compensation of the Gladiac, DVD's will be smooth as every, especially in scenes with a lot of panning."
