Goodbye, Ti? Abit's Siluro GF3 Vio Faces Off Against The Establishment

The Siluro GeForce3 Vio: A Graphics Flagship, Continued

Here, you can see the connectors: One 15-pin D-SUB monitor interface; a DVI connector for digital flat panels; and, an S-Video connector that requires a splitting cable (included) for simultaneous video-in and video-out. Thanks to the Philips encoder/decoder SAA7108E, it's possible to easily record a video stream via S-Video or composite, while simultaneously playing a game on a huge television.

The Competitors: Other GeForce3 Cards

The difference in performance and quality between graphics cards using the same GPU is slight, which is not surprising. However, the cards can be differentiated by the addition of certain useful features, such as TV-in/TV-out, or a DVI connector, used for digital flat panels.

Other differences consist of the software bundled with the card (games, video editing or 3D software, DVD player), overclockability and, of course, the price.
