About 2 months back, I had heard that Canopusí was slated to
release an Nvidia Riva TNT2 Ultra card whose specs would even
surpass that of the Herculesí. Obviously,
this came as a pleasant surprise to many (including myself), as
Canopus had fervently announced their complete withdrawal from the
desktop graphics market scene.
the Canopus brand name has always been synonymous with both quality
and innovation. And
with their past credits demonstrated in the original Spectra,
including the revolutionary Witchdoctor technology and practical
in-game control functions, one canít but expect anything less with
its next generation graphics board. So
I guess if anybody could deliver, Canopus would undoubtedly be high
on the list of potentials.
I couldnít wait to see what tricks & features these
professional designers had in line. In
addition, my current system consists of a 32MB non-Ultra Diamond
V770 (o/c to 162/192), which I thought would be a worthy comparison.
am a strong advocate that a niche group of 3D enthusiasts (like
myself) exists, who would be willing to spend the dough for a
quality product. But letís see if the Spectra 5400PE can really
justify the high SGD 550 price tag placed upon itself.
