the past couple of months it seems that I have seen a million
different TNT2 based cards. Either based on the value TNT2 chip
(125/150MHz) or the Ultra TNT2 (150/183MHz), the board manufactures
rarely add anything extra, with the exception of a few (Hercules
comes to mind). With the ERAZOR III based on the vanilla
TNT2 (125/150MHz), what could Elsa possibly offer to make it
stand out from the crowd? Let's find out.
is a company based in Europe and not too well known among gamers.
Elsa's primary focus has been in OEM's (Original Equipment Manufacturers)
and graphics workstations. Though, After seeing how high the
demand is for gaming graphic cards, and how much money there
is to be made, Elsa decided to jump onto the TNT and TNT2 bandwagon.
This was when the ERAZOR series was born.
venturing too far away from factory specifications, and Nvidia
reference board design plans, Elsa's boards never seem to have
anything very innovative about them. The ERAZOR III is
no exception. The board looks almost exactly like the reference
board, the only thing that is missing is the fan. The drivers
are also not to different from the Nvidia reference drivers
either. Elsa only added a couple of branding logos to make the
drivers display seem authentic. Anyway, stability and quality
have always been Elsa's prime goal, and by following reference
design plans, this is a goal they meet or exceed in every product
on to the features.
