Now here is the meaning of all the headings for the testing:
Erazor III OC'd/Default drivers/145 Core /170 Memory
Erazor III(1)/Default drivers/Default Core/Memory
Erazor III New/Newest Drivers from nVidia/Default Core/ Memory
Erazor III New OC'd/Newest Drivers/145 Core/170 Memory
Detonator 2.08 (just what it says)/145 Core/170 Memory
Now the scores are really strange in the Q3 area. They were all run on Demo 1 in the various color and texture depths and resolutions. This is a sweet gamers card for the money, the frame rates are pretty good compared to the lower end cards out there. The 3D Mark's came out close to what I expected. The Detonator 2.08 drivers did give a boost at points, though nothing to call Mom about. Most of the scores speak for themselves so I am not going to ramble on about them.
Revelator Glasses, Pimping and Conclusion
On to the
Revelator 3D Glasses. I have to admit, I originally thought they were a bit
odd looking when I took them out of the box. Their performance was far from
their appearance I assure you. One issue I ran into, and I am sure most of you
who get them will, is the refresh rates. You need to have a refresh of 100hz or
better at the desired resolution. When I first went to try them out in Viper
Racing, my refresh was at 60hz, and boy did that not go well! Everything was
flashing here and there like a damn slide show.
I jumped into TNT Tweak me up and jacked the refresh to 100hz. Back
into Viper and these glasses are great! It feels like you can reach into
the screen, and the effect is mind blowing let me tell you! One downside is they
will only fly in Direct 3D games, no OpenGL support. No big though, these things
are tight. I played all my D3D games for hours on end just to get my fix! One
bad thing is trying to walk around after wearing them for that length of time,
and yeah they can make you sick to your stomach when you aren't used to them.
