The Erazor comes with easy to use utilities (WinMAN Suite) that allow you to get the full experience out of the card.  These utilities allow you to individually set your resolution (in increments of 4), your refresh rate (in increments of 1), 3D settings, as well as settings for the 3D revelator glasses that come packaged with most cards.  

The TNT2 chipset proved itself worthy when i began to benchmark 3D on my system.  The Erazor provided excellent framerates and was on the high end of 3DMark 99 benchmark tests.  The Erazor stuck it out and was a great performer when it came to 3D gaming, scoring very high on every benchmark test. The results are as follows: 


3DMark 99: 

1024x768 32bit Color - 3,001 3DMarks
1024x768 16bit Color - 3,482 3DMarks
800x600 32bit Color - 3,736 3DMarks
800x600 16bit Color - 3,796 3DMarks

Quake 2: 

1024x768 32bit Color - demo1.dm2 - 37.5 fps
800x600 32bit Color - demo1.dm2 - 61.6 fps

Quake 3:

1024x768 32bit Color - q3demo1.dm3 - 34.5 fps
800x600 32bit Color - q3demo1.dm3 - 38.4 fps

All Bilinear Filtering, Lightmap, 32bit Textures

System Specs:

Celeron 500, 128MB RAM, Windows 98SE, Abit BX6 Rev. 2.0
