In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon X1200 128mb.

The Radeon X1200 128mb was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the Radeon X1200 128mb is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Riva TNT2 Pro 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 Radeon X1200 128mb has 96 MB more video memory than the Riva TNT2 Pro, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Riva TNT2 Pro has superior memory performance.

The Riva TNT2 Pro has 2.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon X1200 128mb, which means that the memory performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is marginally better than the Radeon X1200 128mb.

The Riva TNT2 Pro has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1200 128mb has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is 0 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1200 128mb is 1. The Radeon X1200 128mb having 1 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Riva TNT2 Pro performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

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.Radeon X1200 is known as Radeon Xpress 1200.
