Also while I don't know if it's the same texture format it also says it supports the "8-bit RGB PAL8" texture.
That sounds promising. FF8 will give you the definitive answer since it has a paletted texture check in its configuration utility.
Additionally, it uses paletted textures for rendering the in-game menu, which will have washed out colors on cards that don't support this feature.
Tested the card with Final Fantasy 8: the config tool notice the "Pass" result for the 8-bit Paletted Textures! And I can confirm the menu colors rendering is mostly similar to the Geforce2 result above posted, certainly not like the other two. The grey shades before the center brighter part is divided in four sort of darker columns until the sides. In-game backgrounds also looks quite good in colors even if I've never played this game.
Soon I'll post some game screenshots.
