The Fastest GeForce2 GTS Card - Gainward's CARDEXpert GeForce2 GTS/400

Benchmark Setup

For the benchmark setup I decided to use our new Pentium III reference platform with Intel's 815e chipset, the Asus CUSL2. I benchmarked the Gainward card at the fastest settings as well as the default settings and added benchmark results scored with a default GeForce2 GTS equipped with 64 and 32 MB, which run their 6 ns DDR memory at only 333 MHz.
