That’s because video cards are meant to play games Installation and drivers Test system configuration: Then on to our Giants test which involves a quick run through the multiplayer level “Three Way Island 1” from the Meccs team to catch the minimum and maximum framerates encountered. The difference consists in the arrangement of the memory chips. It provides the space for a TV-out chip.

The KYRO based cards cost today even less than the GeForce2 MX, that is why the only obstacle in 4000xr way of popularization of these cards is a small number of companies which are producing them. Don’t forget that when you’re looking at the benchmarks, and the price.

Surprisingly enough, in 3D Markthe Kyro 1 and 2 aren’t very far apart. Of course, being an older chip, it doesn’t even have full Direct X 7 hardware support it lacks of hardware TL hercules 3d prophet 4000xt Direct X 8 is completely out of the picture. But not everything is so perfect. For hercules 3d prophet 4000xt we used drivers from STMicroelectronics of 7.

OpenGL wouldn’t start for Quake 3, 2D was terribly sluggish in windows, video was low-resolution and low-color and looked horrible. It’s not at the Hercules 3d prophet 4000xt of higher end models, but then if your eye can distinguish between games at and 60 FPS you should be too busy working at the circus to care about gaming.

Overall I was quite surprised with the way the card performed. Here we see the Kyro 2 coming out on top in all hercules 3d prophet 4000xt, and the Kyro 1 expectedly lagging behind the others. It provides the space for a TV-out chip.


The GPU is hercules 3d prophet 4000xt with a roundish cooler with an effective fan. If you’re going to be playing games in the lower resolutions, that is, x or x, and considering this is a low-end video card I wouldn’t recommend playing in the higher resolutions anywayhegcules get acceptable performance levels.

But this technology is just earlier and, therefore, slower in a hercules 3d prophet 4000xt frequency. Besides, this PCB has a smaller size.

400xt The only thing of note about the board is that, strangely enough, there is a heat sink, held in place by pushpins, on hercules 3d prophet 4000xt back of the card. In the May 3Digest you can find a full comparison of characteristics of cards of this and other classes.

Hercules 3D Prophet XT Review – IGN

We have already written that the peculiarities of the architecture of this chip doesn’t allow for lifting the frequency. But the KYRO deserves attention not only due to a low price for its cards, but also due to a series of hercules 3d prophet 4000xt technologies which allow them to lift the performance in the 3D much more than just by fps. Switching out a couple of different drivers, I eventually settled on 7. In bit color the situation is similar to the previous test. On the one hand, hercules 3d prophet 4000xt means that the product is improving and developing; on the other hand, there is an example of 3 ATI RADEON when the product was released with rather raw software.

The card doesn’t follow the reference design from Imagination Technologies. 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 hercjles are corrected in the latest versions of the drivers.


In X at 75 one can see a sharp image. hercules 3d prophet 4000xt

For comparison the hercules 3d prophet 4000xt of the following 4000zt are given: The bit color has brought nearly the victory to the KYRO!

Installation and drivers Test system configuration: Test results The 2D quality is just excellent. Granted, it isn’t really fast, but it hangs with other available budget cards pretty nicely.

The Radeon scores higher than the MX as is typically expected in Giantshercules 3d prophet 4000xt the highest speeds are achieved by the Kyro 2. I’ve hercules 3d prophet 4000xt Kyro 2 numbers so you can directly compare the two chipsets. On the whole, the KYRO products are rather good. It herculws similar to the Blue Orb from ThermalTake, but the heat sink has a completely different configuration.

Giants utilizes Direct X 8 and Hardware TL capabilities of video cards, and while it should generally favor cards with these features, this is not always the case:.

The Kyro 1 is essentially the same as the Kyro 2, so you can always see that review for more specific details on the technology behind the silicon.
