In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 7100 are noticeably better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The GeForce 7100 was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the GeForce 7100 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 7100 has 224 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 7100 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 7100 has 2.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT2 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 7100 is marginally better than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

Both the Riva TNT2 Pro and the GeForce 7100 have 2 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce 7100 is 1 and by the Riva TNT2 Pro is 1. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce 7100 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the GeForce 7100, 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 NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series graphics processing units (GPUs) represent a significant leap forward in 3D graphics design, delivering the unparalleled horsepower and revolutionary technologies you need to tackle the latest games and video applications. The GeForce 7 Series GPUs deliver blazing frame rates and outstanding image quality so you can experience full-throttle graphics performance.
