Default Nvidia's 'A New Dawn' brings back the nymph

Roughly a decade ago, Nvidia introduced a new graphics chip called the NV30, and it wasn't exactly a rousing success. Despite a bundle of hype about the potential of DirectX 9-class capabilities to advance real-time graphics—much of it justified, it turns out—Nvidia's first attempt at a DX9 chip was late to market, ran too hot, and couldn't keep pace with the excellent Radeon 9700. Heck, we called it a disappointment before it even reached the market, once we got a look at the card design, saying: "Who knew Nvidia would stick a Dustbuster to the side of its next-gen graphics card in order to cool the GPU to where it could reach clock speeds higher than the Radeon 9700?" That remark earned us the right to buy our review card on eBay, which eventually led to our first review featuring results from a digital sound level meter. That puppy was loud!
