However, Creative included a unique software package that allowed the user to run software that used 3dfx ‘s Glide. And a real TNT2 isn’t much more expensive, and looks like a rather better choice if your gaming tastes run to Direct3D. The number of distinct colours that a piece of hardware or software can display. The S, with more of the fancy extra Direct3D features supported in hardware, streaked ahead in this test. OpenGL games inherit the colour depth of the desktop when you run them; if you’re running 16 bit in Windows, that’s what the game’ll be.

Certainly, if you’ve got a slower-thanMHz processor, you won’t see the extra speed from a full TNT2 anyway and might as well get the cheaper hardware. This was a distinguishing point for the TNT2, nvidia tnt2 model 64 the Voodoo3 was marketed under the premise of superior speed and game compatibility.

Refresh rate, measured in Hertz Hzis the number of times per second the screen is “repainted” with the image. Making Quake 2 benchmarks Frame rate measuring with Quake 2 is very easy.

In gaming, refresh rate is not so critical, because you’re generally not staring intently at relatively stationary objects in great fields of solid colour. The Accelerated Graphics Port is based on the PCI standard, but clocked at least twice as fast to accommodate the demands of 3D graphics. You don’t nvidia tnt2 model 64 much help nvidia tnt2 model 64 opening the box; there’s the nvidia tnt2 model 64 in its antistatic bag, one CD, and that’s it.

Direct3D games choose their own colour depth, and may or may not be switchable between 16 and 32 bit mode. Voodoo2 cards were more than a year old, but, when combined together, could still outperform nvidiw Nvidia technology.

The Model 64 is a cut-down version of the full TNT2; it retains the TNT2’s bit data interface, but mkdel only a 64 bit memory interface.

The S, with more of the fancy extra Direct3D features supported in hardware, streaked ahead in this test. With frame sync turned on, your framerate can never exceed your monitor refresh rate, so mocel won’t find out if your video system is faster.

OpenGL games inherit the midel depth of the desktop when you run them; mmodel you’re running 16 bit in Windows, that’s what nvidia tnt2 model 64 game’ll be. You can get the massive1 and crusher demos from here. But if you’re after serious gaming speed, and you’ve got a fast CPU, you probably won’t have to save much longer to get quite a bit more performance. Ah, budget video cards. The test machine was powered by a MHz overclocked Celeron A. This page was last edited on nvidia tnt2 model 64 Mayat This was far and away the highest clocked TNT2 model released.

For 3D, 32Mb is also presently pretty much irrelevant. How fast does it go?

Nvidia riva tnt2 model 64 driver – TechSpot Forums

For the Quake tests, I ran the standard Demo2 timedemo, to get an idea nvidia tnt2 model 64 single player framerates, the offensively complex Crusher demo, to see what the worst case scenario was, and the less demanding but still hefty Massive1 demo nvidia tnt2 model 64 see what actual mldel performance might be like.

The Model 64 has a smaller processor and heatsink than you get on the full TNT2 cards. For 2D, it’s irrelevant.

I suspect it could have gone rather higher, but TNTClk doesn’t go beyond MHz and hangs if you wind the slider up all the way If you’re not presently using the Detonator drivers probably because you’re not nvidia tnt2 model 64 a TNT card at allyou may need to change to the standard Windows VGA nvidia tnt2 model 64 before yanking your old card in order to effect the changeover without having to deal with Safe Mode restarts. The postprocessed nature of the effect also meant that framebuffer captures did not display it, which lead to erroneous claims equating TNT2 bit quality to Voodoo3 when in many titles of the day Voodoo3 bit quality was closer to TNT2 bit quality in practice.

The CD contains drivers for tons of video cards and an installer program that detects what Windows version you have and which of the various cards you’re using, and lets you install the proper driver. Voodoo3 cards render internally in bit precision color depth.

External AGP 4x port for the separate graphic card was lacked. They’ve been made to work nvidia tnt2 model 64 16Mb or 8Mb cards, and so the textures for any given place nvidia tnt2 model 64 the game simply don’t take up enough space that data has nvjdia be moved to the video card from main memory, except during pauses between levels. Refresh rates below about 72Hz cause visible flicker; higher rates don’t.

Not many current games benefit at all from more than 16Mb of video memory. And it’s within fifty bucks of the lower end TNT-2 cards, which are not far off being the 6 PC graphics adaptors you can buy.
