This means that in games which only put a single texture on a polygon face at once, the TNT2 can be more efficient and faster. This was far and away the highest clocked TNT2 model released.

Some games also had exclusive 3D features when used with Glide, including Wing Commander: The northbridge ALi M with graphic core was commonly paired with a MD southbridge and was prepared for the low-cost Socket motherbards.
Kepler GeForce External AGP 4x port for the separate graphic card was lacked. This is dithered down for the bit framebuffer, which is then postprocessed by a 2×2 box filter in the RAMDACdubbed “bit equivalent” output by marketing.
This was a distinguishing point for the Vanfa, while the Voodoo3 was marketed under the premise of superior speed and game compatibility. A low-cost version, known as the TNT2 M64, was produced with the memory interface reduced from bit to bit.
Views Read Edit View history. The postprocessed nature of the effect also meant that framebuffer captures did not display it, which lead to erroneous claims equating TNT2 bit quality to Voodoo3 when in many titles of the day Voodoo3 bit quality was closer to TNT2 bit quality in practice. This means that in games which only put a single texture on a polygon face at once, the TNT2 can be more efficient and faster.

TNT2 graphic speed was crippled by missing local frame buffer and slow access to the main memory. Tesla GeForce 8 9 Frame buffer memory operated at MHz and used bit bus.
However, Creative included a unique software package that allowed the user to run software that used 3dfx ‘s Glide. Prophecyand the popular Unreal had a troubled development k64 with regards to Direct3D and was plagued by issues such as missing details in this mode. But solution was mostly known from low-cost and low-quality boards without separate memory. The card used special extremely low latency for the time 4.

However, when TNT2 was launched, single-texturing was no longer used in most new games. This wrappernamed Unifiedwas not as compatible with Glide games as real vsnta hardware, but it was also the only card available other than a 3dfx card that could run Glide software.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Voodoo2 cards were more than a year old, but, when combined together, could still outperform then-current Nvidia technology.
The card lacked TV output, however. This was far and away the highest clocked TNT2 model released. Comparison of Nvidia graphics processing units. Computer-related introductions in Nvidia graphics processors Video cards. Voodoo3 cards render internally in bit precision color depth.
