These are the contents of the box: I won’t elaborate on this mentioned issue but on something more special Although there were some defects and poor implementation on that chipset, many people still bought it. So what is this card actually capable of? However there is a slight problem here because TNT does not seem to like Super-7 boards. 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.

These are the contents of the box: Fremont SE by Portola Dimensional. Last updated November 21, So here they are:. Microsoft’s Game Sampler for Windows Introducing the nVidia Riva TNT Chipset as taken from the AnandTech Spectra Review Afp not to buy nVidia After the initial release of the Riva chipset it seemed as if the diaomnd itself was reason enough to leave nVidia out of the competition when it came to dizmond quality.
As you can tell, this definitely decreases the performance of the TNT, but we’ll talk about performance figures a little later. In spite of the fact that the public was blatantly lied to by nVidia about the potential of the TNT, technically nVidia never said when their TNT would be a Voodoo2-killer, so we can’t really blame them now can we?

The nVidia Riva TNT, a chipset whose description on paper could have been the best graphics accelerator of Suffering from poor image quality, poor implementation of the AGP specification, an annoying x Z-Buffered fiper limitation, diamlnd to mention poor performance on slower systems. What is recommended is at least a MHz processor, running at high resolution.
Tng 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 Recently, in the PC Hardware Industry, we became acquainted with the “rules” of this game with the wave of 3Dfx Voodoo2 based accelerators that hit the gaming industry like a storm.
Directly from the source, nVidia claims to have a 0. Virtually a repeat of the release of the 3Dfx Voodoo2 chipset, nVidia’s Riva Dixmond is quickly spawning batch after batch of cloned apples, meaning separating a single TNT card from another is a very difficult task.
I would personally recommend a cooling fan to be installed if you intend to overclock it’s memory or chip.
Cramming a total of 7million transistors into the 0. Hopefully will be able to do it soon.
While a TNT chip manufactured using a 0. The box design is a notch above the former aircraft found on the Viper V 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 Installation is similar to most Video cards.
All drivers version are unable to be disclosed due to the fact that this review is based on a card that is not yet launch worldwide and will only be announced when it’s launched soon.
And we managed to get it here for you. 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.
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 viprr 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 Viperr signal as well as during the peaks.

If you remember the comparison between virtually any two Voodoo2 accelerators, it usually came down to a ynt of software bundles or drivers. MS DirectX Version 6. 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.
The 3D Features are: I ttn elaborate on this mentioned issue but on something more special What do you get with the Riva TNT?
