What you get In the great tradition of budget cards, the Butterfly’s box makes plain that the contents are, indeed, a graphics card, but say nothing about what card it actually is. These glasses made games look as though they were coming out of the screen, and worked with both Direct3D and some OpenGL titles. The Butterfly overclocked pretty well. TNT2 graphic speed was crippled by missing local frame buffer and slow access to the main memory. For the most part, the M64 is identical to a regular TNT2. How fast does it go? If you do have to send texture data to the video card in the middle of a hectic game then nasty pauses can occur, and you can see this effect by turning every quality slider in Q3Test to maximum and charging around a bit, but since lower detail levels are so close to indistinguishable from higher ones that it makes no difference, there’s no reason getting bothered about it until games come along with enough big textures for it to matter.

However, when TNT2 was launched, single-texturing was no longer used in most new games. The S, with more riva tnt2 model 64 the fancy extra Direct3D features supported in hardware, streaked ahead in this test. AGP lets the graphics board rapidly access main memory for texture storage. 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 riva tnt2 model 64 install the proper driver.

Different people have different thresholds of annoyance when it comes to screen flicker, but staring at a 60Hz screen all day is an unpleasant experience for pretty much anyone. This was a distinguishing point for the TNT2, while the Voodoo3 was marketed under the premise of superior speed and game compatibility.

So this certainly isn’t a bad value board – but neither is it all that exciting. The card itself is riva tnt2 model 64 unremarkable looking AGP board, which appears to be pretty much exactly the same mdoel Model 64 design that’s sold by a few yum cha video card makers. By and large, though, setting up movel Model 64 should be no problem, because even the stock drivers on the included CD are perfectly adequate.


They come in a box that usually doesn’t even have a brand name on it, but is long on the generic Asian-made graphics card hype “Professional Display System delivers the finest most amazingly real color ever seen, both in the home and in the arcade The card lacked TV riva tnt2 model 64, however. Give Dan some money! They’re easy to spot. But you still want 75Hz or so, if riva tnt2 model 64 can get it.

Frame rate measuring moedl Quake 2 is very easy. Instead, the 64 in M64 refers to a memory bus that is bits wide. You can get the massive1 and crusher demos from here.

In Tnnt2, this means the Model 64 is notably slower for 3D than the “real” TNT2, but retains outrageous 2D performance – high speeds and high refresh rates at resolutions higher than by and high colour depths are easy for the Model 64, although these resolutions are of little use on monitors with a diagonal of less than 21 inches.

However, Creative included a unique software package that allowed the user to run software that used 3dfx ‘s Glide. Testing without sound is the only way to completely fairly compare systems riva tnt2 model 64 different sound cards, because different cards cause different CPU loads. Refresh rate, measured in Hertz Hz riva tnt2 model 64, is the number of times per second the screen is “repainted” with the image.

Web hosting riva tnt2 model 64 provided by SecureWebs. With frame sync turned on, your framerate ntt2 never exceed your monitor refresh rate, so you won’t find out if your video system is faster. 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.

Does much the same thing as Direct3D and Glidebut does it on any computer you care to name. And a real TNT2 isn’t much more expensive, and looks like a rather better choice if riva tnt2 model 64 gaming tastes run to Direct3D.

Just like the GeForce, it seems that the M64 is going to be severely limited by memory bandwidth, cutting it clock for clock by half in fact.

Frame buffer memory operated at MHz and used bit bus. For 3D, 32Mb is also presently pretty much irrelevant. Tesla GeForce 8 9 Refresh rates below about 72Hz cause visible flicker; higher rates don’t.

It’s not enough that a given graphics system support the resolution and colour depth you want. GeForce 8 9 Now type “map demo2. Now you can riva tnt2 model 64 them from the Quake 2 console just like demo2; “map crusher. For the most part, the M64 is identical to 46 regular TNT2.
