In case of almost all modern 3D accelerators 2D quality can depend much on a certain sample, and it’s impossible to test all cards; 2D quality also depends on a monitor and a cable; Besides, it depends on friendliness of a certain monitor toward a certain video card.

I just want to say that this family is meant for mainstream market, i.

That is why 2D quality is not kept track on here. However, such cards are not cheap. All words are written not just stuck to the box.

Nowadays Gainward products are seen as high quality offerings with that something extra whether it is faster onboard memory than their competitors or that eye-catching red PCB. What distinguished these cards from each other, were the operating clock speeds, amount of onboard memory and of course the price.
