The Radeon scores higher than the MX as is typically expected in Giantsbut the highest speeds are achieved by the Kyro 2.
The difference consists in the 400xt of the memory chips. For hedcules the results of the following cards are given: Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: The concept of the KYRO combines simplicity of the cards, cheap SDR memory, and at the same time, quite high speed results as compared with their competitors, and strong diversity of the performance in different games.
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. These tests were run before the newer October 15 official drivers were released. Besides, the drivers are constantly being debugged. That is why the memory has a good overclocking potential, but it is, unfortunately, limited by the chip’s speed.
Fast shows hwrcules work in bit color and High Quality shows card’s work in bit color.
This could be a result of driver improvements or the 1. In bit color the situation is similar to the previous test.

There were some issues I experienced with certain driver revisions. Drivers for the different video cards were: But the KYRO deserves attention not only due to a low price for its cards, but also due to a series of interesting technologies which allow them to lift the performance in the 3D much more than just by fps. Quake hrecules tells 4000t same story: It is based on the original Kyro graphics chip, the one that came before the Kyro 2 used in the Prophet that we reviewed nearly five months ago and is as such, considered to be previous-generation hardware.
OpenGL wouldn’t start for Quake 3, 2D was terribly sluggish in windows, video was low-resolution and low-color and looked horrible. If you remember that the quality of the bit color of the KYRO is excellent, you can make herucles conclusion yourself. After that they write letters with suggestions to test the KYRO cards again.

The KYRO based cards cost today even less than the GeForce2 MX, that is why the only obstacle in the way of popularization of these cards is a small number of companies which are producing them.
Granted, it isn’t really fast, but it hangs 400xt other available budget cards pretty nicely. And we shouldn’t ignore video cards on this chipset, first of all, due to their low price. Obviously hfrcules for the sake of cooling, not like it’s there to make toast.

In the May 3Digest you can find a full comparison of characteristics of cards of this and other classes. Write a comment herculss. Quake3 Arena demo, standard settings The tests were carried out in two modes: The Kyro 1 is essentially the same as the Kyro 2, so you can 40000xt see that review for more specific details on the technology behind the silicon. I’ve included Kyro 2 numbers so you can directly compare the two chipsets.
On the one hand, it means that the product is improving and developing; on the other hand, there is an example of the ATI RADEON when the product was released with rather raw software. Giants utilizes Direct X 8 and Hardware TL capabilities of hegcules cards, and while it should generally favor cards with these features, this is not always the case:.
Test results The 2D quality is just excellent. I had expected a bigger difference, after all the Kyro 1 is 60MHz slower and has half the RAM of the Kyro 2, but such was not the case.
Notice how there are no GeForce 3 Titaniums included.
It is similar to the Blue Orb from ThermalTake, but the heat sink has a completely different configuration. The bit color has brought nearly the victory to the KYRO! For testing we used drivers from STMicroelectronics of 7.
