To 3D Or Not To 3D?!
summary, the Erazor 3 board is a decent TNT2 board and very much up
to standard with the other brands. However, it lags slightly in its overclockability (esp its
memory) and price. But
ultimately, there are other boards in the market that offer better
bang for buck like Creativeís and Diamondís in terms of pure
overclocking performance. In
the past, the only unique selling point of the Elsa was typically
the ability to add on the Revelator for a truly 3D experience. However, with Elsaís opening of the Revelator to all TNT2
cards, it has lost the crucial distinct edge that it held in the
regards to the Revelator 3D, I have no qualms of getting one myself
as a 3D gadget. However,
if I do get it, it will be more for experiencing 3D demos and stuff,
and not for actual gameplay.
Why? Well, I must confess that Iím not used to wearing dark
glasses. And with the
degradation in image quality, it makes me feel rather
disadvantageous in multi-player gaming scenarios where image clarity
is a pre-requisite in finding and killing an opponent fast. In addition, the drop in frame-rate has me concerned. Although games are still playable by most accounts, future
games are in question.
the 3D effect is just too good!! Yeah, I mean itís too darn realistic that I end up feeling
queasy after several minutes of disorienting Descent 3 play.
Unless youíre slated to be a Top Gun trainee with flying
experience that has rendered you immune as such, Iíll stick with
the normal 2D view for nowÖ
Take me Home Momma!!
