The GPU is equipped with a roundish cooler with an effective fan. But this technology is just earlier and, therefore, slower in a realization frequency. In X at 75 one can see a sharp image. I’d hope they’d fix the problem but haven’t had a chance to test them out yet. Fast shows card’s work in bit color and High Quality shows card’s work in bit color.

32mb Hercules 3d Prophet 4000XT AGP VGA Video Graphics Card

hedcules Quake 3 tells the same story: The concept of the KYRO combines simplicity of the cards, cheap SDR memory, and at the same time, quite high speed results as compared with their competitors, and strong diversity of the performance in different games. In our 3Digest in the S3TC part I am studying this issue in detail, that is why I recommend you to read this material, where you can also look at the screenshots and make sure that the activation of the texture pro;het worsens the quality of the KYRO prophrt the least extent among all 3D chips.

Samsung produces memory chips with a 7 ns access time, which corresponds to MHz. That’s because video cards are meant to play games That is why the memory has a good overclocking potential, but it is, unfortunately, limited by the chip’s speed.

It is similar to the Blue Orb from ThermalTake, but the heat sink has a completely different configuration. This could be a result of driver improvements or the 1.


However, activation of the S3TC together with the trilinear filtering makes the losses of the latter smaller. Drivers for the different video cards were: Quake3 Herules demo, standard settings The tests were carried out in two modes: OpenGL wouldn’t start for Quake 3, 2D was terribly sluggish in windows, video was low-resolution and low-color and looked horrible.

Here the results herckles somewhat different.

Strong performance fall when the trilinear and anisotropic filtering are enabled; Lack of anisotropic filtering in the OpenGL; Low quality of the anisotropy in the Direct3D. Obviously done for the sake of cooling, not like it’s there to make toast.

BioShock Infinite and Metro: Of course, pfophet an older chip, it doesn’t even have full Direct X 7 hardware support it lacks of hardware TL and Direct X 8 is completely out of the picture. On the one hand, it means that the pprophet is improving and prophdt on the other hand, there is an example of the ATI RADEON when the product was released with rather raw software. The KYRO based cards cost today even less than the GeForce2 MX, that is why the only obstacle in the way of popularization of these cards is a small number of companies which are producing them.

Unfortunately, the situation connected with such a way of debugging of drivers is unpleasant. In X at 75 one can see a sharp image. Here we see the Kyro 2 coming out on top in all resolutions, and the Kyro 1 expectedly lagging behind the others.

Installation and drivers Test system configuration: Besides, the drivers are constantly being debugged. Besides, this PCB has a smaller size.

On the whole, the KYRO products are rather good. After that they write letters with suggestions to test the KYRO cards again.

Don’t forget that when you’re looking at the benchmarks, and the price. Conclusion I must only add to the words said above that activation of the S3TC in the Direct3D doesn’t practically worsen the quality the most of errors are corrected in the latest versions of the drivers. The Radeon scores higher than the MX as is typically expected in Giantsbut the highest speeds are achieved by the Kyro 2.

Surprisingly enough, in 3D Markthe Kyro 1 and 2 aren’t very far apart. Minimum framerates dip lower on the Kyro-based cards, but the maximum framerates are also higher than the others.

I just don’t recommend to enable the texture compression on the games based on the UnrealTournament engine. Why do the drivers pass a debugging process only for several popular games? There were some issues I experienced with certain driver revisions.
