ASUS 3dfx Banshee Graphics Card Agp-v3200/16m SGRAM 16mb AGP 1x Fanned Heatsink

The better the cooling of the card and of your case see here Asus AGP-V3200 my monster fan case-modification project! But actually spending time to wind up your video card that last 0.


The Asus AGP-V3200 is a 16Mb Banshee board, which means it can support some rather impressive 2D resolutions. It can manage a 75Hz refresh rate at by with 32 bit colour. This is probably enough to stretch a startlingly expensive 30 inch monitor to its limits, and much higher than you should bother using on smaller screens like the 17 and 19 inch monitors many people use. Many of these monitors can accept a ludicrously high resolution input signal but don't actually have fine enough dot pitch to display it clearly.

Fuzzy graphics aren't too annoying in games, but they'll drive you mad Asus AGP-V3200 anything else. Incidentally, Asus AGP-V3200 V, like various other Banshee boards, tops out at by for 2D and by for 3D. The latter setting could be useful for flight simulators and other games that don't actually push many polygons, but it's way over the top for games like Quake 2.

Review: ASUS AGP-V Voodoo Banshee graphics card

Overall If you're looking for bang per buck, this is it. If you've a mania for the latest and greatest, you'll already have your hot little hands on the Voodoo 3 board you pre-ordered for a million and four dollars. But if you can live with a little less speed, your wallet will thank you. Glossary Colour depth: The number of distinct colours that a piece of hardware or software can display. It's referred to as depth, and sometimes as bit depth, because of the concept of overlapping, stacked "bitplanes", planar arrays of Asus AGP-V3200 and zeroes that, together, define the colour of each pixel. The more bitplanes there are, the more bits per pixel, and the more bits per pixel, the more possible colours - number of colours equals two to the power of the number of bitplanes. Cards that do more than 24 bit use the extra bits for mixing channels and other funky stuff - 24 bit is more colours than the eye can discern already.

This is significant for gaming, because running your games in 24 bit mode may be prettier, but Asus AGP-V3200 be slower. The image quality difference is not a large one; in Quake 2 you have to look hard to see the vague banding on walls in order to tell you're in 16 bit mode, and in Asus AGP-V3200 real game you don't have much time for that. Games with funkier engines that do fog mixing and similar tricks benefit more visually from 24 bit, but since going for 16 bit will let you run a higher resolution at the same speed, most gamers opt for fewer colours. OpenGL games inherit the colour depth of the desktop when you run them; if you're running 16 bit in Windows, that's what the game'll be.

Remember this if you run your favourite game and it seems strangely slow; check your desktop colour depth.

Direct3D games choose their own colour depth, and may or may not be switchable between 16 and 24 bit mode. Some, like Incoming, come in different versions for different colour depths. Adjusting the "gamma" of an image or of an image acquisition device gives you a way of brightening or darkening without losing as much detail as a straight brightness adjustment. The platform-independent 3D graphics interface standard, with different flavours developed Asus AGP-V3200 Silicon Graphics and Microsoft. Game play was smooth and jerkiness was not visible even with full 3D features were turn on and set to full. People complain that 3Dfx set the limit to only 16Bit while other provide up to 32Bit color rendering, however, these games move so fast that they actually don't make a difference at all.

First person games like Quake2 were pretty smooth when set to Xthis resolution Asus AGP-V3200 quite acceptable to games standard. If you are a true hardcore game and require at setting of X or higher, then you should be willing to pay the premium of an SLI configured Voodoo2.


The Banshee regardless of which manufacturer is catered Asus AGP-V3200 the home user gamer, brining in solid 3D performance and good 2D graphics. Between manufactures there really is not much difference in performance the human eye can actually catch. However, as an end user it is the features and package that should catch your eye.

However, this is not to tell you to get a low-end Taiwanese manufacturer board that is of low quality. Remember that a card may be only as good as it last, and if it fails so is your investment. This is where ASUS V Banshee comes in, it has the entire quality feature a peripheral need but abstains from accessories that most users do not require, this brings down the cost and the V is one value for money peripheral any user should consider. The Banshee can perform better than a V2 when the games do not use or take advantage of multi-texturing because the Banshee is clocked higher than the V2. But in games that do take advantage of multi-texturing, e. Currently only few games support multi-texturing, but in the future, more games will and the Banshee might suffer then.

But for time being it does Asus AGP-V3200 job well. Asus relatively known for their top quality motherboard has entered into total new arena, the multimedia zone.
