In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 are very slightly better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The GeForce FX 5200 was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the GeForce FX 5200 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 FX 5200 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 GeForce FX 5200 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce FX 5200 has 0.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT2 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce FX 5200 is marginally better than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Riva TNT2 Pro has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce FX 5200 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is 0 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce FX 5200 is 1. The GeForce FX 5200 having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce FX 5200 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than 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 GeForce™ FX 5200 and GeForce PCX 5300 GPUs deliver best-in class performance and features at a great price. With a GeForce FX or PCX mainstream GPU inside your PC, you can experience cinematic-quality effects, studio-quality color, and the industry-leading performance and rock-solid driver stability you expect from NVIDIA. The only DirectX 9 compatible GPUs in their class, the GeForce FX 5200 and GeForce PCX 5300 models are engineered for compatibility with the latest gaming and multimedia software.
