3DBlaster GeForce Annihilator - Page 1
By Wy Mun
2 days ago, I walked past one of my local computer shops
in Sim Lim Square and was pleasantly surprised to note the
availability of Creative’s 3D Blaster GeForce.
I believe there is a limited quantity available in
Singapore, as I only saw like 20 sets “hidden” and
tucked away on the retail shelves.
this card is one that I had long awaited for. As being the
successor to Nvidia’s TNT2 chipset undoubtedly promises
greater performance than even the fastest Ultra TNT2 board
though I already have a V770, I guess the idea of getting
the first GeForce board in the market, and potentially
issuing its first review compelled me somewhat to take up
the offer. =)
addition, the onboard GPU did make the board look rather
tempting with its inbuilt hardware T&L.
I had actually held back my cash as I was informed
then that an 'Ultra version' would be available.
However, that night this turned out to be bogus
with nVidia's confirmation, stating no plans for such a
chipset. Coupled by
this fact and also that other manufacturers will mainly be
releasing 32MB SDRAM versions of this card, I took another
trip the next day and bought the board for SGD 425.
