card does not come with an additional fan on the chipset like
most other TNT2 cards on the market today. It also does not
come with any full games, just a CD with 20 game demos to show
off the card. The ERAZOR III does however come with a thick
instruction manual that is a pleasure to use if you are ever
in need help with anything.
installation of the ERAZOR III went flawlessly, Windows' plug
and play installation is really starting to work like it should
have since the beginning. Instead of setting the drivers to
VGA before I installed the card I didn't. Windows still recognized
the card on startup, and asked me to plug in the driver CD.
A few minutes later after another reboot, I was up and rolling
with the ERAZOR III card.
drivers for the Elsa card(s) don't seem to be anything spectacular
like the kind Hercules provides with their cards. Unlike most
3d cards' drivers, the Elsa's drivers do not contain an overclocking
option. They do however contain options for changing gamma settings,
direct 3d settings, and a number of other useful things. The
drivers' layout seemed clean, and easy to use to the beginner.
Again, I was very disappointed in the lack of an overclocking
utility So, I used the popular utility Powerstrip for my overclocking
tests of the ERAZOR III. Here are some pictures of the ERAZOR
III's drivers. Click for a larger image.
