In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FireGL V3300 are massively better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The FireGL V3300 was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the FireGL V3300 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 FireGL V3300 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. This is supported by the fact that the FireGL V3300 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FireGL V3300 has 3.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT2 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the FireGL V3300 is marginally better than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

Both the Riva TNT2 Pro and the FireGL V3300 have 2 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the FireGL V3300 is 1 and by the Riva TNT2 Pro is 1. Knowing that the shader performance of the FireGL V3300 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL V3300, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage 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.The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, and civil engineering architectural software such as Chief Architect, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations.
