This MB model, which still comes under the umbrella FX naming scheme, has 75MHz less core speed and a whopping MHz less memory speed; effectively half the bandwidth of the Ultra Rev. ABIT’s Siluro bundles have always been either just above or just below average. Benchmarks in all the glitzy online review and print press show them to be technological marvels, capable of beating games, even new games, into benchmarking submission. We’ll come back to that later. At this time, though, brute strength is usually a decent determinant of performance.

And, to be fair, that’s not too far off the mark. Click to find out more.
It should be an interesting battle between the midrange cards, as both sets us slightly different methods for antialiasing and anisotropic filtering. With Visor, you are ready for far more stable overclocking than other VGAs without such advanced cooling architecture. Not only does the Visor look way cooler than other VGA cards, it actually is cooler. Consider the impressive FX Ultra cards for a second.

Let’s have a look at the MB model first. Hardware monitoring ensures your system stays quiet when the GPU is inactive. However, neither ABIT card exhibited this ability, even though both cards had differing core clocks for 2D and 3D work. Corporate headquarters are silro in Taiwan.
Who doesn’t want the latest technology?. The standard FX MB becomes incredibly stunted by having only 6. Held on firmly by two push-through pins, it more than good enough at cooling the MHz 0.

However, once we start digging a little deeper into each card’s specifications, we’ll see that these are radically different. How quiet is 25 decibels? And to see where they all fit into the big scheme silueo things, a Radeon Pro MB card will be used as a performance yardstick. More a case of aesthetics over purpose, probably. The Threat 11 – Overclocking tests 12 – Conclusion and thoughts.
A few surprises will be unearthed during the way.
On first glance, it seems to be a substantial aluminium block but remove the eye-shaped piece, through two small screws that fasten into the smaller heasink underneath, and the guts of the cooling is revealed. At the time of writing, ATi’s newest set, the Catalyst 3.
Both companies also know that sales failure in this crucial sector will put them back considerably. ABIT’s Siluro bundles have always been either just above or just below average. Note that there is no video-in facility on this card.
For more information, visit the Company’s web site at http: It’s really a question of maximising the potential of the hardware through robust and efficient drivers. A definite candidate of the zbit GPU fan of ‘ Lower priced components are usually beneficiaries of the technology that’s gone into creating the highest performing product.

Benchmarks in all the glitzy online review and print press show them to be technological marvels, capable of beating games, even new games, into benchmarking submission. Hardly necessary for MHz memory, though. The twist is in the speeds of the GPU and memory.
That’s the single most important factor on this card. Indeed, folks not au fait with the PC hardware world will often be seen stating that “one could buy a car for that sort of money”.

It’ll add a little class to those who have windowed cases. Excessive and prolonged ambient case heat will not only cause more system crashes, it will dramatically reduce the life of your PC.
