Like pretty much every other current video card, you can run the V Deluxe faster than stock speed. You plug a camera into your PC, you tell Video Security what areas of the image to monitor for movement, and if it sees any, it can save a video clip, run whatever program you configure, send e-mail, or dial a number via your modem and play a warning sound of your choice. Its game “bundle” is good, because instead of giving you a pile of second-rate titles, it gives you one top-shelf one – Soldier of Fortune. I’ve dealt with SmartDoctor before, in my review of the V Pure here ; in brief, it doesn’t turn my crank. This is not surprising because they have done this in the past, with the “Deluxe” version of their V and V cards. In the past, the price difference between plain and Deluxe versions of ASUS cards has been a lot bigger. Well, we’ll check it.

The VD looks significantly different, with plenty of extra componentry to support the extra ins and outs. The same concerns x 32 bpp. Indeed, in case of GeForce2 GTS the memory resulting frequency is the same for both card variants – MHz they differ only in memory size. It’s an excellent game for anybody who appreciates enemies who react properly when you blow their knee apart.

In the past, the price difference between plain and Deluxe versions of ASUS cards has been a lot bigger. Per-pixel dot product 3 bump mapping. There are various compression “codecs” available for free download which you can fool around with in the ASUS software, but even with a cutting edge CPU you’ll have a hard time matching the quality of uncompressed video – which is very bulky.

Which brings us to the back panel connectors. There’s a capture driver for WinNT and included as well.

V700 versions of the ASUS shutterglasses setup – which used the same glasses, but earlier support software – were a big pain to use. And none of them are necessary, with a decently fast CPU. Noteworthy is the fact that sometimes in specifications you can see not a working frequency, but a resulting one.

For you to compare we give the graphs of 2 more videocards: And at last, we can witness their appearing. If you don’t have Win98, you’re not stuck. They’re all AGP cards and capable of the asuss maximum AGP speed mode, too, though azus real performance difference this gives over 2X on current systems is very close to zero, and 2X isn’t much better than 1X either.

But as built-in video capture goes, the V’s is fine. Your monitor can’t display anything like as many frames per second as a GeForce2 can generally feed it at byand it’s questionable whether your brain could tell the difference anyway.

Using it In use, the most notable feature of the V Deluxe is that it’s a really really really fast 3D card. And since there’s no point using higher resolutions than by when you’re outputting to the fuzzy screen of a TV most TV encoders don’t even work with higher resolutionsand the frame rate can’t possibly be higher than 60 frames per second for NTSC or 50 frames v770 second for PALthe GeForce2’s very expensive ability to fill gigantic numbers of pixels per second is completely wasted on such a task.

So you’re stuck with ASUS’ drivers.

Believe the NVIDIA press release artists and you’d think it came with warp drive and dual reciprocating cancer cures, but in reality it’s just got a faster core and higher rated RAM. ASUS is well known for their superb motherboards, which are highly regarded within the hardware community.

peo PCB has slots for a aeus card with TV-out. Like pretty much every other current video card, you can run the V Deluxe faster than stock speed. You’re actually required by the WinBench license agreement to publish test system information, but I guess it doesn’t count when you’re just making numbers up, b7700 the NVIDIA marketing people obviously are. V77000 manufacturer has its own strategy to make their card distinguishable from the competition; Hercules has added RAM-heatsinks, Creative Labs has reduced their prices, and ASUS has decided to tackle this issue with features, and lots of them.


Execute other security control programs. But you lose image quality. Noticeably faster than the GeForce2 GTS it is, but at the resolutions you’re probably going to be using, its advantage will be small enough to make the price difference ridiculous. But if you’re into 3D games, and especially if you’ve got a big monitor and can thus use higher than by resolutions without your pixels going fuzzy, it bears repeating that a GeForce2 GTS will give you the serious speed you’re looking for.

So you’re not paying much for all of the extra bits in the Deluxe package. The auto-notification system serves as your private security or reception system.

Remember that you can’t clearly display by on any monitor smaller than 21 inches. They’re often not that different, though. You can reduce this effect by turning down the monitor brightness, but you can’t do that too much before darker areas on the screen turn into pools of shadow.
