Including the DVI-out port ensures at least an upgrade path for those out there interested prophte keeping the card for an extended period of time. All benchmarks performed with MadOnion. With the memory running at hz it is well above the Memory speed of the default Hercules Ultra.
A thermal pad on the bottom of the heatsink serves to aid in thermal transfer, however it is not as effective as the thermal grease we have seen in other cards. Now that we’re in the bigtime, you can expect the standard massive big-o-tronic heatsink to hum away the minute you turn prophett the system, just to keep the monstrosity from exploding or just igniting into a white-hot flame.

Since UT doesn’t really respond much to overclocking the video card I left it at default settings of Mhz Core Mhz memory and ran the tests at both CPU speeds as shown on the graph above. Making use of the 2nd generation transform and lighting engines that the GGTS II architecture makes possible, the Prophet II boasts some impressive results when run through the gauntlet of benchmarking hsrcules.

The differences at this resolution aren’t as marked because the CPU is limiting the card in the lower resolutions, but with the CPU at Mhz the top 3 is still Hercules boasts that its heatsinks have been crafted to allow the fastest speeds possible for the card, and if you watch the thing in action, you’ll be surprised that the card just doesn’t lift the computer off the ground with its sheer wind-power.
