Gamer's dream is first baby...
Creative and NVIDIA got into bed together recently. The result of their consummation? The 3D Blaster RIVA TNT2 Ultra 32MB graphics card.
The card uses a massive 32MB of Synchronous Memory and a 300 MHz DAC. This gamer's dream is based on NVIDIA's new RIVA TNT2 Ultra processor and combines 128-bit architecture with TwiN-Texel dual 3D rendering. There's full 32-bit colour rendering, multiple textures up to 2048x2048, bump-mapping, full-screen anti-aliasing and stencil buffering.
Creative says the card supports software DVD decoders, has an S-Video connector to deliver NTSC and PAL signal to your TV (now that's handy), and a TV-out so you can use your wide screen TV as a monitor substitute.
It's available for £179 and Creative plans to chuck in a copy of Rage's Expendable.
