Thanks to Visor”s unique all-aluminium dynamic fly-over structure, heat is conducted away from the GPU with far greater efficiency over a much broader surface area. The low power requirement of a MHz core, running from a 0. With Visor, you are ready for far more stable overclocking than other VGAs without such advanced cooling architecture. A multi-language manual that seems to cover a number of different Siluro FX-based cards is a little brief for our liking.

Both sets of cards are manufactured on an advanced 0. For more information, visit the Company’s web site at http: It should be an interesting battle between the midrange cards, as both sets us slightly different methods for antialiasing and anisotropic filtering.

How quiet is 25 decibels? The Radeon PRO, on the other hand, uses a faster core and decent memory bandwidth.

Given the number of different combinations of GPUs and memory sizes, the buyer needs to know exactly silurk they’re getting for their cash.


Add to that the slick dual display functionality inherent in the newer Detonator drivers sets and you have a decent all-around package. Held on firmly by two push-through pins, it more silurp good enough at cooling the MHz 0. What was the best tech product of ?

It’s far easier justifying an upgrade, whatever the component, if the siluuro involved are of more sane bait. Massive core speeds, allied to impressive memory bandwidth and a whole host of other marvelous goodies, means that the most desirable products are the ones with astronomical price tags. With the increasing heat of GPUs causing case temperatures to rise to alarming levels, standard cooling is quickly becoming inadequate. Sales of TFT screens have rocketed in the last year, and it’s not uncommon for users to be running two DVI panels in tandem.
