Geforce2GTS Logo

Two weeks have passed since NVIDIA dropped the bomb by launching yet another first-class chipset, the GeForce2 GTS, and we're starting to see cards appear on local store shelves across the country. The first company to release product based on this chipset, ELSA, surprised not only consumers but also competition as well being available as of last week beating Leadtek and AOpen to the punch. Leadtek and AOpen will be releasing within the next couple of weeks and have graciously supplied me with final product. All of our contestants are in review form and are not previews of what is to come. Our goal in this comparison is to compare the competing products with each other and help you decide which product is best suited for you if any.

The Chipset

Geforce2GTS Chip

The AOpen PA256 Pro, ELSA Gladiac, and Leadtek WinFast GeForce2 GTS (WFGF2) are all based on the GeForce2 chipset by NVIDIA. Let's have a quick recap of what this new chipset offers over the original GeForce.

  • .18 micron core resulting in greater clock speed, less heat and cheaper production costs
  • Higher performance T&L engine (faster core and slightly optimized T&L engine over GeForce)
  • Higher Fill-Rate of 800Mpixels/s and 1.6 Gtexels/s
  • Slight increase in Memory Bandwidth at 333MHz DDR vs. its predecessor's 300MHz DDR memory
  • Full Scene Anti Aliasing (FSAA) (available in the GeForce driver but performance not reasonable to use)

It also includes all of the features offered in the original GeForce chipset. For more detailed information about the GeForce2 GTS chipset or how it compares to competing chipsets, please read the extensive report, Tom's Take on NVIDIA's New GeForce2 GTS.
