The 2 chips were some years apart. Btw you have any pics of the cards and are you planning on testing more cards?
Tbf, TNT1 doesn't seem like a very useful retro card to me, but at least your had less of the weird artefacting you are decribing 😜
I meant to mention that in my post - edited. Amazing the difference that even 2.5 years made when we were near "peak advancement rate" for graphics improvements.
Top card is the MX400, bottom is the TNT1. I had a spare 80mm fan blowing right at the heatsink of both cards for the tests. The MX400 looks like it might need re-capped; that could be the source of the artifacting?
I did this test on a whim; I'd add more into it if I have what people want to see tested. I've got some less common cards at the moment - NVS280 PCI, Quadro4 XGL, Voodoo3 2000 (common), SiS 305 AGP, Savage4 AGP, a leftover Radeon 7000 VE with a VESA P&D (Plug & Display) connector (I think AKA M1?).
I'd like to see the SiS 305 and the Savage 4, nice to visit some less usual cards.
