Too Much Of A Good Thing? The Lowdown On 128 MB GeForce3 Ti200 Cards

Gainward, Continued

The TV-Out is handled by a Conexant CX25871-13 encoder chip, allowing a maximum TV-Out resolution of 1024x768. Sadly, displaying the signal to both the monitor and the TV at the same time is not possible. Also, the PAL image is boxed in by the black frame on the TV that has become a trademark of all NVIDIA cards. To make use of features like overscan or dual view, you'll need to get a utility like TV-Tool.

The cards share the same software bundle. In addition to the drivers, Gainward includes its own suite of utilities, called "EXPERTool." These offer advanced display settings for the monitor, color adjustment and gamma correction, as well as an overclocking tool. Last but not least, a retail version of WinDVD 3.0 also ships with the card.
