Therefore the Sparkle seems to be the card to go for in terms of overclocking potential. Also remember that we run the test at resolutions of x and up. The GeForce 2 architecture is similar to the previous GeForce line but with various improvements. Less than half the score of a DX8-class card is to be expected.

Maybe there is a shortage of extra fast DDR memory now that the GF3’s and R’s of the world are gobbling it up but the core clock is nice and healthy. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

The Ultra model actually outperforms the first GeForce 3 products in some cases, due to initial GeForce 3 cards having significantly lower fillrate.

The GPU was also used as an integrated graphics processor in the nForce chipset line and as a mobile graphics chip for notebooks called GeForce 2 Go. Not quite factory supported and it will void your warranty but it wouldn’t hard to do and the Sparkle should respond well. The Prolink again takes the lead here due to its higher clocks which isn’t surprising.

That’s fair enough but lets not forget there are other cards out there. Click to find out more.

Here’s the test system and the software we’ll be using. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


GeForce2 Ultra/Ti/Pro/GTS

This doubles the texture fillrate per clock compared to the previous generation and is the reasoning behind the GeForce 2 GTS’s naming suffix: Kepler GeForce In addition, the GeForce 2 architecture is used gerorce2 the Quadro series on the Quadro 2 Pro, 2 MXR, and 2 EX cards with special drivers meant to accelerate computer-aided design applications.

The most significant change for 3D acceleration is the addition of a second texture mapping unit to each of the four pixel pipelines. Slightly rejigged and positioned at a very deliberate price point to tempt those looking for an upgrade or a stopgap card before purchasing the next big thing.

Retrieved April 22, They are 2nd tier cards from NVIDIA for the gamer on a budget or the tactical upgrader looking for a card to tide him over until the next big teforce2. The real thing to notice here is that in the first 2 resolutions, the average framerates are very high and very playable, even with all the rendering options turned up to their fullest. Resolutions tested gefoorce2 x, x and x, all at 32bit colour, 32bit textures and all performance sapping rendering options turned on.

Aquamark is a new benchmark here at Hexus and relies heavily on DX8 class hardware, especially in the pixel shader to extract the best performance.

For the card clocks obtained this is exactly what was expected. A win for Prolink but it’s very close.

These cards were are DX7 cards in essence and it’s no surprise they both well here. Like Quake3 geforcr2 doesn’t use DX8 class features and has been around for a bit now. In fact, we reviewed such a card recently, the ATi Radeon The GeForce 2 family comprised a number of models: It’s ATi’s 2nd tier card after the 8xxx series cards. The GeForce 2 architecture is similar to the previous GeForce line but with various improvements.


GeForce2 Ti Can Run PC Game System Requirements

Finally we have 3DMark The GeForce 2 architecture is quite memory bandwidth constrained. Everything else is static and it shows just how far a manufacturer will go to gain the advantage, in this case overclocking the card from the factory.

Less than half the score of a DX8-class card is to be expected. The Mhz memory clock seems a little low.

Faster than the GTS and Pro but slower than the Ultra, the GeForce 2 Ti performed competitively against the Radeonalthough the had the advantage of dual-display support.

Card Features Both cards feature the same GPU so we’ll cover that first, then the distinguishing features of both cards separately. hi

Remember that the test system ran no board side cooling so all the heat removal was done by the card fan on the GPU. The test platform was fairly modest with a midrange P4 processor and DDR chipset giving the cards a decent base from which to perform.
