ASUS AGP-V7700PRO DELUXE DRIVER
Last modified Dec They're often not that different, though. They've all got pretty much the same raw performance - some can be wound up a bit further above stock speed than others, but the difference Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe trivial. They're all AGP cards and capable of the 4X maximum AGP speed mode, too, though the real performance difference this gives Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe 2X on current systems is very close to zero, and 2X isn't much better than 1X either.
And they pretty much all have 32 megabytes of video memory, though some pricey units have 64Mb, which can actually make a difference in games with tons and tons of texture data, but still often doesn't. But there are differences. Some GeForce2 boards have extra video outputs, some have video input, some have further fancy options. And some have, well, everything. But Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe you want all of the extras at a surprisingly good price, ASUS' flagship card could be just what you're after. Which is a lot for Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe graphics card, but not actually all that steep for a GeForce2.
So you're not paying much for all of the extra bits in the Deluxe package. In the past, the price difference between plain and Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe versions of ASUS cards has been a lot bigger. Fancy features OK, let's get the shiny bit out of the way. The Deluxe version has a chromed one. It won't work any better, but then again it doesn't need to. GeForce2s run pleasingly cool compared with the earlier GeForce chip, and so pretty much any old chip cooler will do the job. Most GeForce2 GTS boards exhibit a certain amount of cookie-cutter similarity, because they're all based on the same reference design. Pretty much all of them have 32Mb of RAM, and some have TV out, but the TV out option's part of the reference design, so boards without it just have empty spots.
The VD looks significantly different, with plenty Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe extra componentry to support the extra ins and outs. Which brings us to the back panel connectors.
The seven pin combination video input works in the same way as similar combination output connectors on other cards. An S-Video lead will plug right in as normal, and a short adaptor cable's included with a plug on one Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe to match the extra pin-holes and connect them Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe to a standard RCA composite socket on the other end of the cable.
There's also a pair of video cables - one composite, one S-Video - included. They're not long cables, but most video card manufacturers are too stingy to give you any. Each eye thus gets to see a view of the game world rendered from a slightly different angle, just as if your eyes really had different lines of sight into the scene. The result is a quite plausible impression of depth. You can't lean to one side and see behind something - the images presented stay exactly the same regardless of your real line of sight to the screen - but there genuinely is more object position data being pumped into your brain.
Older versions of the ASUS shutterglasses setup - which used the same glasses, but earlier support software - were a big pain to use. Partly because the support software had incompatibilities galore and a lousy interface, and partly because of the clunky glasses, which despite their little foam nose pads tend to be quite uncomfortable, difficult to line up with the eyes, and a lot heavier than Buddy Holly's nerdiest frames. The specs aren't quite so bad if you have a smaller-than-normal cranium, but they still leave a lot to be desired as comfort eyewear. Especially if you already wear glasses when you're peering at a computer screen. It's easy Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe twiddle settings while playing a game, and it's got a fighting chance of working with most OpenGL and Direct3D games.
Plus, with the brute grunt of the GeForce2 behind it, it's possible to use the visually superior "page flip" mode, and retain a good frame rate.

In page flip mode, the monitor runs in its normal progressive scan mode and displays one whole full-resolution scene at a time. The lower-load alternative is interlaced mode, in which lines from the two versions of the scene are one-to-one interleaved down the screen, with the monitor painting them alternately and half of your Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe resolution therefore going west. The basic limitation of LCD-glasses 3D, though, remains.
Because it's impossible to make an LCD blackout shutter that blocks light well enough to completely occlude the view of the monitor, there's always a ghost of the other eye's view reaching each eye when it shouldn't, resulting in a triple-image effect where dark ghosts of objects hover on either side of them. You can reduce this effect by turning down the monitor brightness, but you can't do that too much before darker areas on the screen turn into pools of shadow. Now, it's not like you're paying a million dollars for this 3D Asus AGP-V7700Pro Deluxe, and for the money it's excellent. But don't expect miracles. Software You can break down the software bundle for every video card into "drivers" and "other stuff", and for many basic cards neither part matters much. The trouble with reference drivers, though, is that they don't let you use non-standard features like funny video connectors and 3D glasses - the stuff you're paying for, if you buy a V Deluxe instead of an ordinary GeForce2 GTS board.
The V Deluxe will work fine with reference drivers, but some or all of its fancy extras will be lying fallow. So you're stuck with ASUS' drivers. Fortunately, they're OK. The included driver-and-utility disc that comes with the V Deluxe is version 5. In the "other stuff" department, many cheapo cards' software bundles are often forgettable enough that you can confidently slip the discs under the nearest convenient frosty drinks without once looking at the software. The V Deluxe does better than that. Its game "bundle" is good, because instead of giving you a pile of second-rate titles, it gives you one top-shelf one - Soldier of Fortune.
