Elsa Erazor X2 Review - Introduction

By: Jonathan Martini - July 19, 2000

Skip To:


Here we are, more than two months after the release of NVIDIA's GeForce2 GTS and many web sites continue to review older GeForce 256 based graphics cards. Why is that? Because the GeForce 256 continues to be a very capable graphics card for most of us - the exception being the hard-core gaming crowd.

With prices of GeForce 256 DDR graphic cards dropping below $200, it won't be long before they become a bargain. Plus, if you happen to have a run of the mill processor (~450Mhz), the difference in performance between the GeForce2 GTS and the GeForce 256 DDR is not that great at lower resoultions. So let's check out Elsa's Erazor X2.

Just look at the neat Box Art :

The majority of visitors to nV News have more than likely read up on the GeForce 256 specs and what the chip is capable of. If not, be sure to check out our review of the Creative Labs Annihilator Pro.
