As promised, NVIDIA is delivering their high-speed TNT2 parts at the start of May. The incredible hype which surrounded the release of the TNT2, generated primarily by reports of the elusive TNT2 "Ultra" parts, has built the public's desire for the TNT2 to finally hit the streets. Needless to say, the first manufacturers to offer TNT2 parts will most likely get more than a few impulse sales, but how good of a product will you be getting? Is something better just a week or two down the road? Let's find out as AnandTech takes a look at the world's first TNT2 based product that is available for purchase today, Leadtek's Winfast 3D S320 II.
