ProLink PixelView GF2Ti Review

ProLink PixelView GF2Ti Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Prolink is relatively unknown to North American consumers - they usually sell their products to OEM's rather then the general public.

Let the Benchmarks Begin

3DMark2000 Ver 1.1

GeForce2 GTS
GeForce3
Radeon8500
GeForce2 Ti
GeForce2 Ti (oc'ed)

11457
12273

In terms of DirectX7 performance the GeForce2 Ti can compete with the big guns even at stock. When overclocked, it's even better! Let's take a look at how the card fairs with the newer and more advanced 3DMark2001...

Here, the GeForce2 Ti is only faster then the GTS not surprisingly. Still, it's probably the best value card of the bunch. Oc'ing however doesn't really seem to give that much of a performance boost. Here's another synthetic, Vulpine's GLMark

Again, being based on older technology, the Ti isn't even close to the Radeon8500 let alone the GeForce3. Also, it's not that much faster then the GTS! =( However, enough with synthetics, let's see some REAL WORLD games.

Serious Sam

Normal 640x480 Suburbs demo

165.3 fps
136.1 fps
161.1 fps
169.5 fps

It's obvious here that we're all CPU limted here. Still, at this resolution, the Ti can comete with the GeForce3 quite easily. Does this trend contine when the resolution is cranked up?

Even though Serious Sam the 2nd Encounter is on the works, this game can still stress cards quite a bit! The Ti just doesn't have enough horsepower to keep up with the GeForce3 however, because of ATI's lack of driver support, the Ti can compete with a far superior 8500 at every resolution here. Here's everyone's favorate OpenGL benchmark...

Quake III Arena

Again, here we're all CPU limted. Geez, the overclocked Ti is slower then the stock!

As the resolution is turned up higher and higher, the the Ti can compete up to 1024x768 which is a nice resolution. After that, it just isn't powerful enough. Even being about 2 years old, it's amazing Quake III can tax a videocard so much! Next up is a game based on the Quake III engine, tweaked for the outdoors scene.
