In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1270 are significantly better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Radeon X1270 was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the Radeon X1270 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 X1270 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 X1270, which means that the memory performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is marginally better than the Radeon X1270.

The Riva TNT2 Pro has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1270 has 0. 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.

The Radeon X1270 requires 14 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Riva TNT2 Pro.

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.This GPU was intended to be an overclocked and tweaked Radeon Xpress 1200 but it was never released and it does not exist.
