On the one hand, it is pleasant that the debugging process is so fast, but, on the other hand, how dare they release products with raw software? Switching out a couple of different drivers, I eventually settled on 7. For estimation of 3D quality we used the id Software Quake3 v. If you’re on a really tight budget and you’re buying retail, look no further than the XT. These tests were run before the newer October 15 official drivers were released. 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. The Radeon scores higher than the MX as is typically expected in Giants , but the highest speeds are achieved by the Kyro 2.

This could be a result of driver improvements or the 1.

These tests were run before the newer October 15 proohet drivers were released. In the May 3Digest you can find a full comparison of characteristics of cards of this and other classes.
OpenGL wouldn’t start for Quake 3, 2D was terribly sluggish in windows, video was low-resolution and low-color and looked horrible. Hercues GPU is equipped with a roundish cooler with an effective fan.
In X at 75 one can see a sharp image.
That’s because these are budget cards we’re talking about. Here the results are somewhat different. For testing we used drivers from STMicroelectronics of 7.
Besides, this Propht has a smaller size. Quake 3 tells the same story: A buyer of such a card must has an Internet access all the time to update the software. The card doesn’t follow the reference design from Imagination Technologies.
If you’re on a really tight budget and you’re buying retail, look no further than the XT. The card is traditionally sky-blue. Overall I was quite surprised with the way the card performed. Giants utilizes Direct X 8 and Hardware TL capabilities of video cards, and herculs it should generally favor cards with these features, this is not always the case:. After that they write letters with suggestions to test the KYRO cards again. Besides, the drivers are constantly being debugged.
Surprisingly enough, in 3D Markthe Kyro 1 and 2 aren’t very far apart. I just don’t recommend to enable the texture compression on the games based on the UnrealTournament engine.
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. The Radeon scores higher than the MX as is typically expected in Giantsbut the highest speeds are achieved by ehrcules Kyro 2. The activation of the S3TC hasn’t helped here.
Video 3Digests Video cards: Switching out a couple of different drivers, I eventually settled on 7. BioShock Infinite and Prophdt Unfortunately, the situation connected with such a way of debugging of drivers is unpleasant. Write a comment below.

Obviously done for the sake of cooling, not like it’s there to 3x toast. It is similar to the Blue Orb from ThermalTake, but the heat sink has a completely different configuration.
The card ships in a dark Retail-package with a picture of a soldier or a magician. That’s because video cards are meant to play games The bit color has brought nearly the victory to the KYRO! In our 3Digest in the S3TC part I am studying this issue in detail, that is why I recommend you to read this material, where you can also look at the screenshots and make sure that the activation of the peophet compression worsens the quality of the KYRO to the least extent among all 3D chips.
