In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6100 nForce 405 are noticeably better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The 6100 nForce was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the 6100 nForce 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 Riva TNT2 Pro has 32 MB video memory, but the 6100 nForce does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the Riva TNT2 Pro and the GeForce 6100 nForce 405 have 2 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the 6100 nForce is 1 and by the Riva TNT2 Pro is 1. Knowing that the shader performance of the 6100 nForce is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

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.This GPU is the same as
GeForce 6100 nForce 405 is an integrated GPU (GeForce 6100, in this case) in a NVIDIA motherboard (nForce 405, in this case).
The old architecture, low specifications and the fact it only uses system memory, lead to very poor performance and so not recommended for today's gamers.
Therefore, only old games can be played at high settings with decent FPS while today's demanding games are unplayable.
