Creative 3D Blaster GeForce2 Ultra ... accelerator delivers massive fill rates of up to one billion pixels and two gigatexels per second. Featuring the NVIDIA Shading Rasterizer (NSR), the 3D Blaster GeForce2 Ultra includes advanced per-pixel shading capabilities for realistic visual effects. Plus 2nd-generation Transform and Lighting (T&L) engines render more than 31 million sustained triangles per second. That's insane power for even the next-generation of 3D games!
Best of all, the 3D Blaster GeForce2 Ultra includes everything you'd expect from a cutting-edge 3D accelerator: 256-bit graphics architecture, AGP 4X with Fast Writes support, true color 32-bit 3D rendering, 32-bit Z/stencil buffer, DXTC and S3TC texture compression for Direct3D and OpenGL and superior video capabilities including MPEG1 and MPEG2 playback.

There is only one word which describes this card, and that is fast. It powers through any games available today, and I'd imagine OpenGL stuff as well, judging by the ludicrous frame rates in Quake3. You do, however, need a fast machine to get the best out of it. If you have something slower than around 600-700Mhz then you won't notice much difference between this and the Geforce 2 GTS which is cheaper and let's face it is still a very fast card. It has 64MB of DDR SDRAM. This has twice the bandwidth of regular RAM, and is as much as many computers had only 1-2 years ago. It was easy to install, simply plug in, and install the ...

This is actually an opinion on the similar model, the Creative GeForce 256 Pro, which is my madel. The main difference between this card and the standard GeForce is that this card (pro) uses fast (high bandwidth) DDR (double-data rate) memory. What this means is that the GeForce and the DDR GeForce cards produce near-identicle frame rates at low resolutions, but as the frame rate increases, the DDR cards flex their muscle and achieve very playable frame rates at resolutions as high as 1600 x 1200 In my veryspecial quake3 benchmark test, it proved to be very fast indeed. It clocked a very respectable frame rate of 40.2fps with full 32-bit rendering, ... Read the complete review
