There is no denying
that the GeForce 2 GTS is arguably the most
powerful video chipset available today. nVidia
wasn't happy with having the fastest hardware
available, they had to go and have some excellent
software engineers tweak their drivers for even
more performance. This past week the
Detonator 3's were unleashed upon as and we are
We ran benchmarks
at both default speeds and overclocked using the
Detonator 3 drivers. MDK2 (which I love) was
used to show off the GA-GF2000's OpenGL with
hardware T&L prowess. Tests were done at
32 bit color with hardware T&L and Mip-Mapping
enabled with trilinear filtering.
overclock this puppy...
strange thing happened while overclocked.
The low-res scores actually dropped
slightly. It's obvious that at the lower
resolutions we were CPU limited (at 980Mhz...SHEESH..).
Overclocking the card must tax the CPU just a
little bit more. Nonetheless, performance in
MDK2 is fantastic.
see what the Detonator 3 / GA-GF2000 combo can do
to Quake 3... Again, these tests were taken
at both default and overclocked speeds.

CPU limited all the way up to 1024x768 at the
fastest setting and look at that overclocked score
at 1600x1200...let's turn things up a little
