ABIT Siluro FX 5600 Ultra DT, Continued
The TV-out functions are processed by the TV encoder built into the 3D chip. You connect the cable directly to the card (S-VHS). Composite cables can be connected using a small adapter. The card ships with two video cables, one composite (some 2 m) and one S-VHS (some 2 m). Another bright spot was the power cable, which is trimmed in "rounded cable" style.
The software bundle is a bit paltry. Other than the drivers, the CD contains a DVD player (SiluroDVD) based on InterVideo's WinDVD, and a program called Graphic Max. This overclocking utility unfortunately fails to recognize the different 2D & 3D clock speeds for the card and only allows you to set the 2D clock speed. The Siluro Album CD contains WindowBlinds, a tool for modifying the desktop for Windows XP, and demo versions of Soldier of Fortune II and Earthviewer 3D.
Conclusion: ABIT's Siluro FX 5600 Ultra TD is quite an eyecatcher. But the board is a bit sluggish in 3D performance, as the ABIT test card doesn't use the new flip-chip version of the FX 5600 Ultra. It would also be better to have a quieter fan.
+ Illuminated fan
+ DVD player software
+ Video cables
- FX 5600 Ultra still not flip-chip format (lower clock speed)
- Fan somewhat loud
