In December 2001 I got my hands on a Hercules 3D Prophet III Titanium 500. This card is based on the GeForce 3 chipset.
This is one kick-a$$ card. I spent the first bleary night seeing how far I could crank up the graphics in my current sims.
- 200 MHz core clock
- 64MB onboard DDR RAM operating at 460MHz
- full hardware support for OpenGL 1.2 and DirectX8 acceleration
- silky smooth DVD playback on NTSC and Pal TV sets from resolutions of 640x480 to 1024x768 (HDTV-like resolution)
- DVI connector to display on digital flat panels at resolutions up to 1600x1200
