Overall, this card is a solid performer. The Wildcat VP has over of these processors on a single chip, which allows the card to parallel-process image information, theoretically making it much smoother and more responsive than a typical graphics card. These small processors can also be split up and used for different tasks, and they can off-load tasks normally completed by the CPU. I received the card when it was released last fall, but encountered problems with the first set of drivers. The card is also the first to support virtual memory, delivering up to 16gb of addressable space. The Wildcat VP is a terrific choice for anyone wanting a workstation class graphics card at a reasonable price. The Wildcat VP comes in four models.
