How does the 3D Prophet MB compare with a slew of other graphics cards? Are blue PCBs really faster?

Although the Radeon 's scores aren't quite on par with the Ti, this is a marked improvement from the older Radeon driver set, where it was scoring about half of what it did in x Similar increases in speed from the old driver set to what Comanche 4 experienced; although I noticed a strange graphical effect in the game this time around.

The 'wave' effect on the water seemed to expand beyond the water and become applied to some ground textures. It was very odd. I'm not really sure.


Even if the software bundle is kind of small the Drivers and Utilities disc and a copy of Power DVDit gives you at least what is needed. The card also does the dual-monitor output with ATi's Hydravision software. Even more impressive as far as output is concerned, alongside the launch of the Catalyst drivers ATi has released an adapter that enables HDTV component video output from any Radeon based HERCULES 3D Prophet 8500 LE 128MB.
