Conclusion: If it weren't for the outrageous price/performance rating of the Rage Fury Maxx, it would have gotten at least twice this score. As it is though, the Maxx runs WAY too slow compared to its biggest competitor to be even considered by a Hardcore Gamer for purchase, T&L support or not. The only thing the Maxx has going for it is hardware DVD acceleration. Unfortunately, it's lacking a TV-Out port to make full use of it.
Pros: Great hardware DVD acceleration, ummm... Lots of room for improvement....?
Cons: Expensive as hell, AWFUL drivers, Very low performance for the cost, Resolutions limited to 1600x1200, even in 2d, No Windows 2000 support, even in 2d, Poor image quality when compared to its competitors, No hardware T&L, Installation issues with CD drivers, What good is DVD acceleration with no TV Out?
