This was far and away the highest clocked TNT2 model released. The card used special extremely low latency for the time 4. However, Creative included a unique software package that allowed the user to run software that used 3dfx 's Glide.

This wrappernamed Unified, was not as compatible with Glide games as real 3dfx hardware, but it was also the only card available other than a 3dfx card that could run Glide software. The card lacked TV output, however.

These glasses made games look as though they were coming out of the screen, and worked with both Direct3D and some OpenGL titles. The northbridge ALi M with graphic core was commonly paired with a MD southbridge and was prepared for the low-cost Socket motherbards. Frame buffer memory operated at MHz and used bit bus.

External AGP 4x port for the separate graphic card was lacked. But solution was mostly known from low-cost and low-quality boards without separate memory. TNT2 graphic speed was Apollo Graphics TNT2 Vanta by missing local frame buffer and slow access to the main memory. Current high-performance video cards tend to consume a great deal of power.

While CPU Apollo Graphics TNT2 Vanta power supply makers have moved toward higher efficiency, power demands of GPUs have continued to rise, so video cards may have the largest power consumption in a computer. Although power supplies are increasing their power too, the bottleneck is due to the PCI-Express connection, limited to supplying 75 watts. Modern video cards with a power consumption of over 75 watts include a combination of six-pin or eight-pin sockets that connect Apollo Graphics TNT2 Vanta to the power supply. Providing adequate cooling becomes a challenge in such computers.

Computers with multiple video cards may need power supplies in the — W range. Heat extraction becomes a major design consideration for computers with two or more high-end video cards. Video cards for desktop computers come in one of two size profiles, which can allow a graphics card to be added to small-sized PCs; some video cards are not of usual size, are thus categorized as being low profile. Video card profiles are based on height only, with low-profile cards taking up less than the height of a GeForce 4 series The GeForce4 refers to the fourth Apollo Graphics TNT2 Vanta of GeForce-branded graphics processing units manufactured by Nvidia.

All three families were announced in early In latethere was an attempt to form a fourth family for the laptop market, the only member of it being the GeForce4 Go, derived from the Ti line; the GeForce4 Ti was launched in February and was a revision of the GeForce 3. It was similar to its predecessor. The initial two models were the Ti and the top-of-the-range Ti The GeForce 3 Ti filled the performance gap between the Ti and the Ti but it could not be produced cheap enough to compete with the Radeon In consequence, Nvidia rolled out a cheaper model: Although the was supposed to be part of the launch of the GeForce4 line, Nvidia had delayed its release to sell off the soon-to-be discontinued GeForce 3 chips.

Models with a 64 MiB frame buffer were set to MHz memory speed; this tactic didn't work however, for two reasons.

Firstly, the Ti was perceived as being not good enough for those who wanted top performance, nor those who wanted good value for money, causing the Ti to be a pointless middle ground of the two. Furthermore, some graphics card makers ignored Nvidia's guidelines for the Ti, set the Apollo Graphics TNT2 Vanta speed at MHz on the MiB models anyway. The solution featured the same feature-set and similar performance compared to the NVbased Ti, although the mobile variant was clocked lower, it outperformed the Mobility Radeon by a large margin, as well as being Nvidia's first DirectX 8 laptop graphics solution.

However, because the GPU was not designed for the mobile space, it had thermal output similar to the desktop part; the Go lacked power-saving circuitry like the MX-based GeForce4 4x0 Go series or the Mobility Radeon This caused problems for notebook manufacturers with regards to battery life. The GeForce4 Ti outperformed the older GeForce 3 by a significant margin; the competing ATI Radeon was faster than the GeForce 3 line, but was Apollo Graphics TNT2 Vanta by the GeForce 4 Ti in every area other than price and more advanced pixel shader support. Besides the late introduction of the Ti, the limited release MiB models of the GeForce 3 Ti proved unimpressive, letting the Radeon LE and the full dominated the Apollo Graphics TNT2 Vanta performance for a while; the Matrox Parheliadespite having several DirectX 9.


Apollo Graphics TNT2 Vanta GeForce 4 Ti enjoyed considerable longevity compared to its higher-clocked peers. At half the cost of thethe remained the best balance between price and performance until the launch of the ATI Radeon Pro at the end of The Ti still managed to hold its own against several next generation DirectX 9 chips released in Apollo Graphics TNT2 Vantaoutperforming the GeForce FX and the midrange FXperforming to the mid-range Radeon Pro in some situations. Many criticized the GeForce 4 MX name as a misleading marketing ploy since it was less advanced than the preceding GeForce 3. Velocity The TNT was designed as a follow up to the RIVA and a response to 3Dfx's introduction of the Voodoo2it added a second pixel pipeline doubling rendering speed, used faster memory.
