The Magnificent Seven: GeForce3 Board Round-up

Elsa Gladiac 920

Take a good look, now. Visiontek and ELSA's graphics cards appear physically identical to one another and are almost entirely based on the NVIDIA reference design. This means that very little creativity was involved when selecting extra features to include on the board. In comparison, their competitor, MSI, offers its Starforce 822, complete with VIVO functionality, for $20 less.

There are two highlights to this card - it has a TV-out connector installed on it and it comes with the game Giants Citizen Kabuto. The game comes in a special DirectX-8 version that already makes use of the GeForce3's Pixel Shader. This allows the card to display more detail than the original version.
