More Benchmarks results will be added latter in the week. I would personally recommend a cooling fan to be installed if you intend to overclock it’s memory or chip. Installation of the card is a no-brainer. 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. Directly from the source, nVidia claims to have a 0.

Diamond Viper V NVIDIA Riva TNT Video Card 16mb VGA AGP | eBay
Featuring dual internal texture pipelines, the TNT has been claimed to be able to process multi-textured objects in a single pass, picking up where 3Dfx left off, nVidia managed to accomplish this using a single chip instead of using the two separate texelfx processors the Voodoo2 uses.
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.
So here they are:. Plus the fact that bugs are seen quite often on the card. Cramming a total of 7million transistors into the 0. However there is a slight problem here because TNT does not seem to like Super-7 boards. What g550 see isn’t always what you get. Hype doe s not always live up to it’s name. A pity is that the TNT chip is not attached with a heatsink.
After the initial release of the Riva chipset it seemed as if the chipset itself was reason enough to leave nVidia out of the competition when it came to overall quality. 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 jvidia, transferring data on the sidebands of the AGP signal as well as during the peaks. The image quality on the TNT is vastly superior to that of the original Rivabut better yet, it is virtually on par with that of the Matrox G I cannot imagine how a damond 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.

Firstly, Diamond should really consider adding a heatsink to the chip. Virtually a repeat of the release of the 3Dfx Voodoo2 chipset, nVidia’s Riva TNT is quickly spawning batch after batch of cloned apples, meaning separating a single TNT card from another is a very difficult task.
Telling a G screen shot from a TNT would require a considerable amount of thought and such a comparison would definitely be reserved for those with an eye for the smallest differences among images, for the rest of us, the TNT’s image quality can be considered to be virtually on-par with that of the G The TNT chipset supports 3D, Z-Buffered, resolutions of up to x and, like the Matrox G, does support bit rendering giving it a slight visual advantage over 3Dfx’s Voodoo2 chipset.
Installation is similar to most Video cards. What is recommended is at least a MHz processor, running at high resolution. Last updated November 21, Built on a 0.
nvidoa If one needs help in installing the drivers, the manual explains the process. Hopefully will be able to do it soon. But it is only a matter of time that they’ll do it. However the improvements weren’t enough to justify ditching your Voodoo or Riva for a card based on a chipset that sounds like it was a discontinued Camaro. If you are a power user who wants 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 Installation of the card is a no-brainer.
Comparing apples to apples is one thing, comparing clones of apples to clones of apples is an entirely different game.

For this ynt, AnandTech will not concentrate on benchmarks alone to resolve the question of which TNT based card is the absolute best for your needs.

Definately on the top class level with Matrox G and the renowned Voodoo 2 in terms of image quality.
