The effectiveness of this approach is another question, however all numbers aside, on paper, the TNT took its time shaping itself to be a true winner. A recent upgrade to a similarly overclocked Celeron A made only a very slight difference to Quake 2 framerates with the V card. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. Remember this if you run your favourite game and it seems strangely slow; check your desktop colour depth. In brief, this means you can plug the card straight into any VCR, regular or S-VHS, and any TV with a video in, and play games on the big screen, record graphics to video or what have you. I won’t elaborate on this mentioned issue but on something more special OpenGL games inherit the colour depth of the desktop when you run them; if you’re running 16 bit in Windows, that’s what the game’ll be.

According to the first press releases directly from nVidia, the Riva TNT chipset was supposed to be manufactured using a 0.
I would personally recommend a cooling fan to be installed if you intend to overclock it’s memory or chip. Hopefully will be diamind to do it soon. There’s never a perfect 10 chipset.

Image quality In both 16 bit and 32 bit modes, the V delivers gorgeous 2D and 3D graphics. TNT will be my pick as it rivalled and excelled even better than a single Voodoo 2.
Unreal on the TNT makes for some gorgeous high-res screenshots but, unfortunately, as of the 2. If you want to play Unreal, forget it until the TNT drivers start working with it.

That’s not a good thing, though. But they’re really all much the same. So what is this card actually capable of?
Rather expensive Drivers still not perfect. There are still some of you who do not know that the current shipment is based on a.
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 For this reason, AnandTech will not concentrate on benchmarks alone to resolve the question of which TNT based card is the absolute best for your needs.
Although there were some defects and poor implementation on that chipset, many people still bought it. Direct3D games choose their own colour depth, and may or may not be switchable between 16 and 24 bit mode. Big numbers If you’ve got a fast CPU, the TNT chipset gives you very fast, very dimond 3D, 2D far faster than anyone needs, and supports ludicrously high resolutions.

Firstly, Diamond should really consider diajond a heatsink to the chip. The Viper V Diamon Experience. So it’s not just a show pony; work it hard and it won’t bog down.

Diamond Viper V graphics card Review date: Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. And if you absolutely positively must have frame rate above all else, then Voodoo 2 Scan Line Interleave SLIwith two cards in the one machine, is for you, and nothing else will do.
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.
A pity is that the TNT chip is not attached with a heatsink. In the higher resolutions and bit depths remember, Voodoo cards can’t even do vier bit colour in 3D the V’s score on the Massive1 multiplayer demo is close to its score on the standard demo2 test, and its minimum framerate, as reflected by the brutal Crusher demo, is also right up there. The big black square is the heatsink over the main processor chip.
If you’ve got a DVD-ROM drive but not a decoder card like, for example, the Jaton one reviewed hereit’s not a bad piece of software. Why not give the credit to PCI users as well?
Low res, diamonf, but having a screen the size of a wall makes up for a lot! Give Dan some money!
