In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 1300 are massively better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Quadro FX 1300 was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the Quadro FX 1300 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 Quadro FX 1300 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 Quadro FX 1300 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro FX 1300 has 6.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT2 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 1300 is marginally better than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Riva TNT2 Pro has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 1300 has 3. However, the actual shader performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is 0 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 1300 is 1. The Quadro FX 1300 having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro FX 1300 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Quadro FX 1300 requires 55 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Riva TNT2 Pro. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro FX 1300, 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 Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
