Fragging it up...
This time around we tweaked the
card up to 245/555MHz. and let the Timedemo 001 ride in
32Bit HQ mode...
With the Gladiac 920
overclocked, we saw a gain in performance once again over
16% at the highest resolution. From what we're seeing
here, if you want to push past the 1600 x 1200 limit, the
Gladiac should do it with ease.
In our next test we'll set Quake
3 up for the more popular 1024x768 in 32Bit Color mode and
see how the various AA settings affect the performance.
What we can see here is that
Quake 3 is quite playable with the 4X AA enabled. If
you are the type to balk at 69FPS, then Quincunx should be
good for you. Quake 3 looked absolutely beautiful at
this setting and the frame rates were excellent as well.
It is clear to see that in all
the tests that we performed with the Gladiac 920 GeForce 3,
the card had no difficulties whatsoever. Performance
was good in all tests, never displaying an unplayable score.
At the end of this review, I
think it is clear that the ELSA Gladiac 920 is a
high-quality GeForce 3 based video card. Throughout the
benchmarking phase, the Gladiac met expectations in all
tests, performing particularly well at higher resolutions. What the card lacks in physical flash and
panache, it makes up for in performance. If you are
looking for a quality GeForce 3 video card and plan on
overclocking it to its maximum potential, then consider a Gladiac 920. The best part is ELSA's
unprecedented 6 year warranty. If breaks for whatever
reason you'll get a new one. Now that's confidence in a
We found the quality of the
Gladiac 920 equal to similar reference models. The
performance and overclocking potential of this unit was also
on the same level as other cards as well. We found the
complete package to be terrific, with nice extras like
TV-Out, 3DMark 2001 and Giants - Citizen Kabuto.
