The whole Ti spectrum has been represented here at one time or another throughout our reviews.


Keep in mind that this is not a processor comparison. There have been a number of GeForce3 Ti related reviews here over the last few months, so exploring the technical aspects of the card at this point is redundant.

Abit Siluro GeForce3 Ti500 do find that it is extremely handy to have the technical aspects of the Ti laid out for me if I need them, though. From a technical standpoint, the Siluro Ti carries the exact same features as the reference GeForce3 Tiso if you are rusty Abit Siluro GeForce3 Ti500 need a refresher on the Ti's actual specifications, I highly recommend you read our preview of the GeForce3 Ti What we will be covering today is how well the Siluro Ti performs. All marketing hype and performance claims aside, when the pedal hits the medal and the rubber meets the road, we are going to show you what to expect from the Siluro Ti The Features: The Siluro itself is an impressive looking unit, sleek black PCB with a brushed aluminum heatsink that covers the GPU as well as the memory.


What used to be a very unique design has now been adopted by almost every major video card manufacturer. I think that makes it clear that even a GeForce3 can be pushed to the limits.

Here you can see a difference of approximately 2 fps between the fastest and the slowest GeForce3 board. I guess there's no point in talking about "fast" and "slow" in this context! Again, at x, the differences are even smaller.

Even x is no problem for these GeForce3 pixel monsters. Here, the Abit belongs to the fastest, but still, the differences are minor. The benchmark is run at x and failing to break Abit Siluro GeForce3 Ti500, even when overclocked isn't a showcase for the cards performance in games that use the DX8 shader functions.


The measly increase when overclocked is due to the CPU being made to do all the work that the card cannot. Overclocking the CPU would give a better result Abit Siluro GeForce3 Ti500 increasing card clocks here. We don't get anywhere near our 50fps target sadly.

Finally in our look at game performance we have Serious Sam 2: The Abit Siluro GeForce3 Ti500 Encounter. I've used the publically available demo version of SS2 rather than the full game so that you have something comparable if you wish to run the benchmarks yourself.

Goodbye, Ti? Abit's Siluro GF3 Vio Faces Off Against The Establishment

I use the Valley of the Jaguar demo at the three test resolutions Abit Siluro GeForce3 Ti500 the Quality graphics preference setting. In the high resolution test at x, the Abit gets a hammering by the GeForce3 Ti which simply has more fillrate and available memory bandwidth and pull away by over twice the score the Abit can muster.

As we fall down the resolutions and performance increases, we see that x is the cards sweet spot in the benchmark with greater close to 50fps on average over the 3 runs of the demo. Dropping the graphics quality down would have an appreciable difference on performance but it's nice to enable what rendering features you can.

ABIT Siluro GF3 Ti500 Video Card Review

Overclocking the card doesn't have much effect on performance which points us to the fact that we might be CPU limited but this is more due to the CPU having to do work that the GPU should maybe be doing, not because the GPU is sitting idle. Performance Conclusion While performance is strong in Quake3, the only test in the group of 4 that doesn't stress a GeForce2 card unduly, never mind out test Abit GeForce4 MX, the performance Abit Siluro GeForce3 Ti500 the other benchmarks leaves a lot to be desired. The card simply doesn't have the features to do all that's required for running the shader functions in hardware. With games coming out more and more frequently that only run well on DX8 class accelerators without turning off features or dropping resolution, we have to say that the performance was disappointing.

However given the price point and the target markets of the card, can we really expect stellar performance in everything? With the GeForce4 tag attached to these cards, I think we do have a right to be annoyed at the slightly poor performance.

Again however, for the price you'll pay for one, the performance is quite good. These cards are cheap and as long as you don't expect too much from them, they'll server you well. The ABIT Siluro GeForce3-Ti features one of the most aggressive appearance of all the cards we saw.

It's black PCB matched with the silver. Digit Life takes a look at the ABIT Siluro GF3 Ti Video Card and find it one of the best among GeForce3 Ti models in respect to it's.
