The only thing to differentiate these boards is the memory speeds. Architecturally identical to the GTS, the Ultra simply has higher core and memory clock rates. While watching both cards run the Thunder demo there wasn’t really any hint of slowdown, except maybe at x and then, very little. Resolutions tested were x, x and x, all at 32bit colour, 32bit textures and all performance sapping rendering options turned on. Framerates in Unreal Tournament are influenced a lot by CPU speed rather than the graphics clocks due to the amount of time the UT engine spends doing actor calculations and lighting and it’s all done on CPU. For the card clocks obtained this is exactly what was expected.

The GPU was also used as an integrated graphics processor in the nForce chipset line and as a mobile graphics chip for gefroce2 called GeForce 2 Go. 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.

GeForce2 Ti Can Run PC Game System Requirements

Retrieved July 2, Kepler GeForce 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.

Remember that’s the only thing the defines the two cards uniquely. The Prolink again takes the lead here due to its higher clocks which isn’t surprising. While running UT benches, the benchmark plays at game speed, not speeded up to run as fast as possible as you see in Quake3. Indeed, rather than a single review of each card, I thought it would be interesting to put cards from a couple of Taiwanese heavyweights up against each other, head to head.


I was quite surprised gfforce2 final clocks were as they were and I was expecting a bigger increase from both cards and a bigger spread. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Remember that the test system ran no board side cooling so all the heat removal was done by the card fan on the GPU.

What was the best tech product of ? So out of the box performance on the test platform is very respectable, especially in the older benchmarks, Quake3 and UT where the game engines don’t require the use of the advanced features that the cards simply don’t support.

GeForce2 Ultra/Ti/Pro/GTS

The new Ti cards are kind of a hybrid, sat in between the Pro and Ultra in terms of clock speed. Some say [ who?

The bundles of both cards gefore2 just the bare essentials. Everyone wants the latest and greatest and they contain all the new features and exciting technological advances.

As you can see, overclocked performance was identical and the Sparkle takes the lead in most marks due to the ever so slightly higher clocks. Coupled with the new DetonatorXP drivers a requirement for calling any of the Ti cards Ti’s is the fact that gefodce2 have to be running the new drivers we still have a potent card on our hands.

It doesn’t take advantage of programmable shaders or any DX8 class features. Introduced egforce2it is the successor to the GeForce 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.


Further, the Radeon VE featured only a single rendering pipeline, causing it to produce a substantially lower fillrate than the GeForce 2 MX.

Windows XP Professional Build Computer-related introductions in GeForce Series Video cards. Both cards have rather small heatsinks on the core GPU and no heatsinks on the memory chips.

Also remember that we run the test at resolutions of x and up. Another hardware enhancement is an upgraded video processing pipeline, called HDVP high definition video processor. Framerates in Unreal Tournament are influenced a lot by CPU speed rather than the graphics clocks due to the amount of time the UT engine spends doing actor calculations and gevorce2 and it’s all done on CPU.

Overclocking was done until I found the maximum stable speed at which the card could loop the High Detail Dragothic test in 3DMark the hardest test in the gefofce2 I ran for NVIDIA cards to do without rendering artifacts of any kind. 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, due to it’s slightly higher memory clock takes the lead here. Excellent little cards and hopefully we can see more of them at Hexus and in the UK in the future. This doubles the texture fillrate per clock compared to the previous generation and is the reasoning behind the GeForce 2 GTS’s naming suffix:
