So it’s not just a show pony; work it hard and it won’t bog down. All of this goes for other Unreal-engine games, like Klingon Honor Guard, too. Upgrading to the latest BIOS can cure some incompatibility problems. Sure, switching back to Windows while playing Quake 2 is a bad idea everything looks fine until you try to do something and discover not one solitary Windows resource appears to be unused , and the taskbar occasionally hangs around until you reset the video system going into Q2’s video menu and out again is good enough , but there seem to be no serious bugs except for the abovementioned Unreal incompatibility. The image quality difference is not a large one; in Quake 2 you have to look hard to see the vague banding on walls in order to tell you’re in 16 bit mode, and in a real game you don’t have much time for that. But it’s undeniably gorgeous, runs blisteringly quickly on the TNT, can be set up as a simple arcade racer or a highly challenging single or multiplayer experience with quite realistic handling, and generally shows off the power of the card like nobody’s business. That’s the main reason why 21 inch televisions are so very much cheaper than 21 inch computer monitors.

According to the first press releases directly from nVidia, the Riva TNT chipset was supposed to be diaond using a 0. What do you get with the Riva TNT?
The new drivers also support the extra 3D instructions in such processors as the AMD K and the Intel Pentium III; I don’t have such a processor to test, and initial reports of the actual results are unexciting. Refresh rates below about 72Hz cause visible flicker; higher rates don’t. However, if you own a slower system, it would not be such a good idea to get this card, as you will not be able to bring out its full potential.
Big numbers If you’ve got a fast CPU, the TNT chipset gives you very fast, very good-looking 3D, 2D far faster than anyone needs, and supports ludicrously high resolutions.
With little room for expansion in terms of performance, manufacturers had to resort to the bare essentials and basics to get their products to sell over the competition Diamonf adjustment may be needed to brighten up the image in 3D, but this is hardly a problem unique to the Viper.
So is the TNT a G? If you are a power user who diamobd the best of all worlds, DIAMOND Viper will definately stand out as a top choice with it’s capability of high resolution and highest 2D Winbench scores that beats even the G Some users have apparently reported that K machines actually ran faster with the enhanced CPU support disabled.
All of this power is harnessed on a short reference board designed to fit into an AGP slot in order to take full advantage of the AGP 2X specification, transferring data on the sidebands of the AGP signal as well as during the peaks.

InControl Tools has no Vspecific features; it lets you switch screen resolution and colour depth quickly, but there are umpteen programs that do that. Some, like Incoming, come in different versions for different colour depths.
Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. Super 7 motherboards offer all the features of Slot 1 motherboards, but with a socket instead of a slot. If one needs help in installing the drivers, the manual explains the process.
I won’t elaborate on this mentioned issue but on something more special The results are based on a 2nd driver update sen t to me which has slight improvements and bug fixes over the retail driver. Only then will this babe shine at it’s BEST. Even a MHz machine will produce low-ish Quake 2 framerates in by or by Remember, the screen resolution of even a really good television set is less than by – the tube quality is not nearly as high.

So here they are:. But it is only a matter of time that they’ll do it. I cannot imagine how a chip that’s packed with a Pentium II look-alike transitors not have even a small heatsink, when the P-II heatsink are of such large size.
Last updated November 21, The Diamond drivers offer only basic display controls. Rather expensive Drivers still not perfect. The chip is touching hot when used for more than 10 mins. The nVidia Riva TNT, a chipset whose description on paper could have been the best graphics accelerator of In Quake-2, the image looks beautiful and stunning. Definately on the top class level with Matrox G and the renowned Voodoo 2 in terms of image quality. Monstrous resolutions at high refresh rates, better-than-Voodoo 2 performance in the same graphics modes, support for higher resolutions at useful speeds on quite affordable processors – I think we have a winner.
What is recommended is at least a MHz processor, running at high resolution. Installation is similar to most Video cards.
Built on a 0. It requires only the BEST to work with.
