Video 3Digests Video cards: I had expected a bigger difference, after all the Kyro 1 is 60MHz slower and has half the RAM of the Kyro 2, but such was not the case. The card is traditionally sky-blue. Here the results are somewhat different. On the whole, the KYRO products are rather good. Obviously done for the sake of cooling, not like it’s there to make toast.

The difference consists in the arrangement of the memory chips. Here we see the Kyro 2 coming out on top in all resolutions, and the Kyro 1 expectedly lagging behind the others.
On the whole, the KYRO products are rather good. Notice how there are no GeForce 3 Titaniums included.

But this technology is just earlier and, therefore, slower in a realization frequency. Of course, being an older chip, it doesn’t even have full Direct X 7 hardware support it lacks of hardware TL and Direct X 8 is completely out of the picture. But the S3TC bears fruit, and xy gap is not so critical!
Don’t forget that when you’re looking at the benchmarks, and the price. Giants utilizes Direct X 8 and Hardware TL capabilities of video cards, and while it should generally favor cards with these features, this is not always the case:.
It is based on the original Kyro graphics chip, the one that came before the Kyro 2 used in the Prophet that we reviewed nearly five months ago and is as such, considered to be previous-generation hardware. But the KYRO deserves attention not only due to a low price for herchles cards, but also due to a series of interesting 3e which allow them to lift the performance in the 3D much more than prophst by fps. This could be a result of driver improvements or the 1. After that they write letters with suggestions to test the KYRO pdophet again.
I just don’t recommend to enable the texture compression on the games based on the UnrealTournament engine. Write a comment below. Surprisingly enough, in 3D Markthe Kyro 1 and 2 aren’t very far apart. In bit color the situation is similar to the previous test. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Obviously done for the sake of cooling, not like it’s there to make toast.
Fast shows card’s work in bit color and High Quality shows card’s work in bit color. Why do the drivers pass a debugging process only for several popular games? If you’re on a really tight budget and you’re buying retail, look no further than the XT.
In the box you can find: Besides, this PCB has a smaller size. Quake 3 tells the same story: The concept of the KYRO combines simplicity of the cards, cheap SDR xf, and at the same time, quite high speed results as compared with their competitors, and strong diversity of the performance in different games.
I had expected a bigger difference, after all the Kyro 1 is 60MHz slower and has half the RAM of the Kyro 2, but such was not the case. I’ve included Kyro 2 numbers so you can directly compare the two chipsets.

And we shouldn’t ignore video cards on this chipset, first of all, due to their low price. Minimum framerates dip lower on the Kyro-based cards, but the maximum framerates are also higher than the others. In our 3Digest in the S3TC part I am studying this issue in detail, that is why I recommend you to read this material, where you can also look at the screenshots and make sure that the activation of the texture compression worsens the quality of the KYRO to the least extent among all 3D chips.
It’s not at the FPS of higher end models, but then if your eye can distinguish between games at and 60 FPS you should be too busy working at the circus to care about gaming. Test results The 2D quality is just excellent.
It provides the space for a TV-out chip. Strong performance fall when the trilinear and anisotropic filtering are enabled; Lack of anisotropic filtering in the OpenGL; Low quality of the anisotropy in the Direct3D.
