3D Prophet card - 3D Prophet card

Hercules has been a well known name in the PC video card market for the last 19 years. They certainly have a lot of experience and a name that carries on. Guillemot Corporation acquired Hercules in October of 1999, and their 3D Prophet line of video cards are currently the ones to notice. Hercules makes many kinds of cards to cater to just about any niche they have the need to serve, whether it be the Video Editor User, the Business User, the Home User, the Casual Gamer, or the Hardcore Gamer. The 3D Prophet line includes the NVIDIA GeForce2 MX series of cards, the GeForce2 series, and now the GeForce3 series. Hercules, however, doesn't only carry NVIDIA products. They also make cards based on other chipsets as well, most recently the KYRO 1 and KYRO 2 chipsets. Now, I'm not going to beat around the bush here on this subject. It is rumored that NVIDIA has given Hercules some pressure for making cards based on the KYRO chipsets. The foremost reason is that Hercules makes value video cards based on NVIDIA's GeForce2 MX, and the KYRO chipsets directly target this market. The KYRO cards are a threat in the value segment, as they do compete quite well against the competition. Be sure that this is all relevant to our review, because that very fact is part of the reason why there has been a big fat question mark as to availability of Hercules making a GeForce3 line. The official word to my understanding is that Hercules is still making this card, and we have no reason to believe otherwise.
