In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro are noticeably better than the Nvidia Riva TNT.

The Riva TNT2 Pro was released over a year more recently than the Riva TNT, and so the Riva TNT2 Pro is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Riva TNT.

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 has 16 MB more video memory than the Riva TNT, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Riva TNT2 Pro also has superior memory performance overall.

The Riva TNT2 Pro has 0.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT, which means that the memory performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is marginally better than the Riva TNT.

Both the Riva TNT2 Pro and the Riva TNT 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.The RIVA TNT, codenamed NV4, is a 2D, video, and 3D graphics accelerator chip for PCs that was manufactured by Nvidia. It was released in mid 1998 and cemented Nvidia's reputation as a worthy rival within the developing consumer 3D graphics adapter industry. The first RIVA TNT based card released on June 15, 1998 by STB: Velocity 4400. 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).
