In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9300 GS are massively better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The GeForce 9300 GS was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the GeForce 9300 GS 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 GeForce 9300 GS has 480 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 GeForce 9300 GS also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 9300 GS has 5.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT2 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9300 GS is marginally better than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Riva TNT2 Pro has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9300 GS 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.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce 9300 GS, 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.It had previously been thought that NVIDIA had decided to drop the G and NV nomenclature for a D (for Desktop) nomenclature on their processors. Following the D is the generation number and the target market indicator. NVIDIA's official designations for target markets include Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast. For example, the D9E indicates a 9th generation Desktop GeForce video card for the Enthusiast market[1]. However, NVIDIA has actually forked their codenames into those of graphics processors, and those of graphics cards. The GPU cores have kept the prefix 'G' and future versions will include the prefix 'GT'; whereas the actual cards are now codenamed as D, generation number and target market.
