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 The results are based on a 2nd driver update sen t to me which has slight improvements and bug fixes over the retail driver. Suffering from poor image quality, poor implementation of the AGP specification, an annoying x Z-Buffered resolution limitation, not to mention poor performance on slower systems. It requires only the BEST to work with. Hype doe s not always live up to it’s name. But it is only a matter of time that they’ll do it.

What do you get with the Riva TNT?
Only then will this babe shine at it’s BEST. I won’t elaborate on this mentioned issue but on something more special I cannot imagine how a chip that’s packed with a Pentium II look-alike transitors not have even a small heatsink, when the Giper heatsink are of such large size.

Comparing apples xgp apples is one thing, comparing clones of apples to clones of apples is an entirely different game. Moreover, it would only be available for AGP users. Built on a abp. While a TNT ayp manufactured using a 0. Suffering from poor image quality, poor implementation of the AGP specification, an annoying x Z-Buffered resolution limitation, not to mention poor performance on slower systems.
TNT will be my pick as it rivalled and excelled even better than a single Voodoo 2. If one needs help in installing the drivers, the manual explains the process. In Quake-2, the image looks beautiful and stunning. 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 specification, transferring data on the sidebands of the AGP signal as well as during the peaks.
Diamond Viper V
Firstly, Diamond should really consider adding a heatsink to the chip. Definately on the top class level with Matrox G and the renowned Voodoo 2 in terms of image quality. Cramming a total of 7million transistors into the 0.
Directly from the source, nVidia claims to have a 0. A snake looks-a-like roller coaster creature is the main attraction here.
These are the contents diamomd the box: I would personally recommend a cooling fan to be installed if you intend to overclock it’s memory or chip. We’ve already seen what Canopus can do with nVidia’s Riva TNT Chipset, so let’s see where Diamond draws the line and let’s see if they accomplish their goal in convincing some of you to purchase the Viper V over the competition.
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.
Diamond Viper V550
And packed with a more powerful brain that G fiper cope with. 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 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 ciper overall quality.
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 viprr images, for the rest of us, the TNT’s image quality can be considered to be virtually on-par with that of the G Click here to find lowest prices on this product.
The image quality on the TNT is vastly superior to that of the original Rivabut better duamond, it is virtually on par with that of the Matrox G What you see isn’t always what you get According to the first press releases directly from nVidia, the Riva TNT chipset was supposed to be manufactured using a 0.
Saving both slot space and your pocket. Microsoft’s Game Sampler for Windows If you remember the comparison between virtually any two Voodoo2 accelerators, it usually came down to a comparison of software bundles or drivers. Last updated November 21,
