Elsa Gladiac 32MB

"...the Gladiac, is based on Nvidia's new GeForce2 GTS 32MB chipset."

Elsa, like many other OEMs of Nvidia products, has been a long time player in the viciously competitive world of graphics cards. Their newest graphics card, the Gladiac, is based on Nvidia's new GeForce2 GTS 32MB chipset. Striving to be the first to market with a GeForce2 based card, Elsa decided to stick very closely to the reference design laid out by Nvidia.

Despite the absence of any cool colored PCB or an overly large heatsink, the Gladiac does still manage to offer a few nice features on the other side of the spectrum - software. Rather than bundling a few games that nobody wants, Elsa partnered up with etoll to offer a relatively unique game bundle. Using a software selection page (which has finally gone live) customers can choose two full version games absolutely free, and take one additional game for $8.99, pick two for $15.95 and finally take a third for $19.99. As of right now the only noteworthy games they offer are Messiah, MDK2, and Evolva.

Elsa also has a reputation for excellent driver packages that includes their very useful SmartRefresh and SmartResolution utilities. Both of which allow very minuscule modifications (major tweaking) of your monitor's refresh/resolution all the way down to pixel clock.
