Benchmarks With The Elsa Gladiac 64
nVidia's FSAA comes of age

Now it's time to see how the Gladiac 64 handles the Grand Daddy of all OpenGL Benchmarks, Quake 3...

At the fastest setting, the Gladiac performs very well...let's see how the Normal setting does...

Still performing very well!  Now it's time to really stess this card, it's time for the High Quality setting!  All options in the Game Options menu were also set to their max for this benchmark.

With Anti-Aliasing become ever more popular, it wouldn't be right to not include some scores.  We enables AA with Quake 3 set to the High Quality setting and all options at their maximum.  Visual quality was excellent.

The Elsa Gladiac 64 is a very fast, high quality piece of hardware.  If you?re a hardcore gamer that?s in the market for a card strictly used for gaming, you can?t go wrong with the Gladiac.  Someone looking for more video capabilities like TV-Out would be better served looking elsewhere, but the sheer performance of this card makes it a worthy purchase.  It will be tough for the Gladiac to not get ?lost in the mix?, but if the performance, stability and overclocking potential we found with our Gladiac is the norm, it should be on the top of your list.
