In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Rage 128 Pro are marginally better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Riva TNT2 Pro was released less than a year after the Rage 128 Pro, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Riva TNT2 Pro and the Rage 128 Pro have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Riva TNT2 Pro has 0.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Rage 128 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is marginally better than the Rage 128 Pro.

Both the Riva TNT2 Pro and the Rage 128 Pro have 2 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe RIVA TNT2 was a graphics processing unit manufactured by Nvidia starting in early 1999. The chip is codenamed "NV5" because it is the 5th graphics chip design by Nvidia, succeeding the RIVA TNT (NV4). RIVA is an acronym for Real-time Interactive Video and Animation accelerator. The "TNT" suffix refers to the chip's ability to work on two texels at once (TwiN Texel). Nvidia removed RIVA from the name later in the chip's lifetime.Later, ATI developed a successor to the original Rage 128, called the Rage 128 Pro. This chip carried several enhancements, including an enhanced triangle setup engine that doubled geometry throughput to eight million triangles/s, better texture filtering, DirectX 6.0 texture compression, AGP 4, DVI support, and a Rage Theater chip for composite and S-Video TV-in. This chip was used on the gamer-oriented Rage Fury Pro boards and the business-oriented Xpert 2000 PRO.
