Same goes for the Demo-2 results which reflects the same amount of drop as in Demo Why is that so? At the time, most games supported 3dfx’s proprietary Glide API which gave the Voodoo2 a large advantage in speed and image quality, and some games only used the Glide API for 3D acceleration, leaving TNT users no better off than people who didn’t have a 3D accelerator. Improved mipmapping and texture filtering techniques, including newly added support for trilinear filtering , dramatically improved quality compared to the TNT’s predecessor. The TNT had bit color support while the Voodoo2 only supported bit although internally dithered down from bit color, beating the TNT in 16bit quality.

Retrieved October 9, High Stakes at bit and bit colour to see the difference that so many people try to claim it’s better.

Pod-Racer, Quake-2 and I ran 3r games at x with extreme fluency. So even ttn these tny cards run at higher core and RAM speeds, the limited memory bus has brought the performance down similar to the old TNT.

When I switched on the monitor in the morning, I was delighted to see the Demo still running. The installation involves the fairly standard procedure of switching your display-adapter type to Standard VGA Adapter in Device Manager before powering down to change the video-card and let windows detect riv new card and direct it to the location of its drivers, that’s it!.

Of them, the most important bunch would be the Safe Display mode in case you set the wrong resolution and refresh rates and you’re stuckthe Virtual Desktop Presets, Windows Desktop Presets and the Shortcut Manager.

There is also a value version called the TNT2-M The dashed results are those I choose not to rivz.
