TNT2 graphic speed was crippled by missing local frame buffer and slow access to the main memory. A low-cost version, known as the TNT2 M64, was produced with the memory interface reduced from bit to bit. This page was last edited on 28 November , at Voodoo3 cards render internally in bit precision color depth. For the most part, the M64 is identical to a regular TNT2.

This was far and away the highest clocked TNT2 model released. Of course, dropping down to a bit interface reduces the cost of both chips and boards considerably, which is exactly why NVIDIA made such a compromise.
Kepler GeForce These glasses made games look as though they were coming out of the screen, and worked with both Direct3D and some OpenGL titles. The effects of reduced memory bandwidth would be borne out at higher resolutions and color depths.
This wrappernamed Unifiedwas not as compatible with Glide games as real 3dfx hardware, but it was also the only card available other than a 3dfx card that could run Glide software. For the most part, the M64 is identical to a regular TNT2. The card lacked TV output, tnt.
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. TNT2 graphic speed was crippled by missing local frame buffer and slow access to the main memory.
Voodoo3 cards render internally in bit precision color depth. GeForce 8 9 The internal architecture is still bit, just like the TNT2. Frame buffer memory operated at MHz and used bit bus. So what makes the M64 different from the regular TNT2? Unfortunately, this was not to be the case as both chips support up to 32MB. Log in Don’t have an account?

Comparison of Nvidia graphics processing units. This was a distinguishing point for the TNT2, while the Voodoo3 was marketed under the premise of superior speed and game compatibility. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
However, when TNT2 was tnnt2, single-texturing was no longer used in most new games. The card used special extremely low latency for the time 4. External AGP 4x port for the separate graphic card was lacked.

Back in the days of the original Matrox Millenium, bit graphics were all the rage. Views Read Edit View history. Voodoo2 cards were more than a year old, but, when combined together, could still outperform then-current Nvidia technology.
This is dithered down for the bit framebuffer, which is then postprocessed by a 2×2 box filter in the RAMDACdubbed “bit equivalent” output by marketing. A low-cost version, known as the TNT2 M64, was produced with the memory interface reduced from bit to bit. This means that in games which only put a single texture on a polygon geflrce at once, the TNT2 can be more efficient and faster.
