Re: AGP Hantom 3D (Riva TNT2 64)

Yes, that is a TNT2 m64 with 16MB of RAM. It is not a Vanta chip (they were labelled with the Vanta name horizontally on the chip) but it might have been sold as one. The Vanta was just a poorly binned TNT2 m64 so it was clocked slower. What is it good for? Nothing much really. I sometimes use one …

Re: 1999 Build Refresh

Playing games on a 1999 system is so much better with a Voodoo 3 (or Voodoo 2 SLI). The much lower CPU and FSB load of the Glide API helps tremendously with games like Unreal and Half-Life. As for SSE, I think it is near completely useless unless you want to play 2002+ games. When the Athlon XP came …

Re: Best video AGP card with brown/tan PCB

The top one is an Asus Geforce 4 Ti 4200. These cards often came in tan colour. There might be some Ti 4400/4600/4800SE cards as well but most of those are green or purple. Chaintech, Prolink and PixelView also made tan Geforce 4 Ti's. Your best bet is the Asus Ti 4200 (V8420 or V9280 for the AGP 8X …

Re: Run original VGA fan with 7V ?

The problem as I see it is that only the GPU really needs any cooling. So you are "wasting" a lot of airflow (and noise) with that cooler. On the plus side, if you get a big heat sink of some kind you can run it without a fan :happy: I would measure the temperature of the backside of the GPU with …

Re: Run original VGA fan with 7V ?

I would not be comfortable running the fan that slow. The cooling solution isn't exactly overpowered on these cards. Also the PCI slot coolers suck air out of the case so would counter-act the fan on the graphics card. My active Geforce 2 Ti has a cheap cooler from Aliexpress, similar to this one: …

Re: GeForce Ti -- compatibility problems?

Will 512MB be enough? Single stick, Hynix Yes, at least for lower than high settings. So if I try with GeForce2 -- should I expect better framerate because of unsupported features? This P3-700 was my main system like 15 years ago. I was saying that you can't directly compare the 2 cards. That said …

Re: GeForce Ti -- compatibility problems?

Why does my FPS drop when I open doors and enter new rooms in games? Not enough RAM for the settings you use. DOOM3 framerate is still worse whan on GF2MX/P3-700 with newest drivers and DX9c. Strange. Geforce 2 MX does not have pixel shader support to it uses a simpler render profile. Geforce 4 …
