I ran these tests with and without overclocking, and compared the results. The card did not give me any problems at that speed. The system booted into Windows without problems, but would not run any 3D application without hanging. Seem like a pipe dream? The newest Detonator-3 6. The layout of the board was nice, and the hardware appeared well built. But it does eliminate most artifacts present in 3D accelerated moving images.

Everything about the new “GPU” looks great: A product’s announcement is usually followed by an implementation period of at least one month, right? Let’s go back in time a bit.
The card did not give me any problems at that speed. Image quality was very good at the middle setting, but slight blurring was evident.

If you have a very large monitor, like 21″, and you expect to run your Gladiac at high resolutions like xthen you will want the 64MB model. It is for this reason that cards are already on their way to store shelves. But at higher resolutions and 32 bit color, the Gladiac starts to become the limiting factor, and you can see the performance differences between test systems become much smaller.
The system booted into Windows without problems, but would not run any 3D application without hanging.
Four months later, in January ofthe problem continues to exist. This market presence will only continue to spread with time, as on the 4th of May all Fry’s Electronics stores should carry the card and soon to follow are distributors, meaning that Egghead.
In tests with the Celeron-2, the CPU is obviously the rate limiting factor in performance, since changing the resolution and color depth had little effect on Direct 3D performance. I think for most people, it will be a toss-up whether you prefer x with 32 bit color and no FSAA, or x with 16 bit color and mid-level FSAA.

To get some basic numbers, I tested the Gladiac in three systems, with and without overclocking. As NVidia continues to further implement things like improved FSAA support, and level of detail bias controls in their driver set, there are less and less reasons for recommending a Voodoo5 card.
No review would be complete without Quake III. Getting a GeForce based card is next to impossible, causing hladiac to throw in the towel. Seem like a pipe dream? Texture and Lighting Engine: ELSA 6-year service warranty.

Clearly, CPU speed has a big effect on the Gladiac’s performance. The graph below shows the results. The newest Detonator-3 6.
I installed the newer 5. This time, however, availability is of no concern. The ELSA ‘Gladiac’ video card has been out for awhile, but we had not taken a careful look at it until now. 23mb fact is, that any type of 3D hardware needs software support. Many consumers are excited to get one, regardless of price. But for folks with 19″ or smaller monitors, the 32MB model should be fine.

All three know that if a new, better product is due out in a few months the consumer is more likely to wait, hurting sales in all three departments.
Only memory overclocking had a significant effect on performance, and even glxdiac, the performance boost was marginal.
Obviously, the memory speed, rather than the core speed, is more of a bottleneck for GeForce2 GTS cards. Full scene antialiasing FSAA can improve picture quality, but can also introduce some blurring of 3D objects.
