Instead, the 64 in M64 refers to a memory bus that is bits wide. Back in the days of the original Matrox Millenium, bit graphics were all the rage. This means that in games which only put a single texture on a polygon face at once, the TNT2 can be more efficient and faster. Voodoo2 cards were more than a year old, but, when combined together, could still outperform then-current Nvidia technology. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Some games also had exclusive 3D features nvidiaa used with Glide, including Wing Commander: Tesla GeForce 8 9 This was a distinguishing point for the TNT2, while the Voodoo3 was marketed under the premise of superior speed and game compatibility.

The card lacked TV output, however.

The postprocessed nature of the effect also meant that framebuffer captures did not display it, which lead to erroneous claims equating TNT2 bit quality to Voodoo3 when in many titles of the day Voodoo3 bit quality was closer to TNT2 bit quality in practice.

However, Creative included a unique software package that allowed the user to run software nivdia used 3dfx ‘s Glide. This is dithered down for the bit framebuffer, which is then postprocessed by a 2×2 box filter in the RAMDACdubbed “bit equivalent” output by marketing.

The internal architecture is still bit, just like the TNT2. The effects of reduced memory bandwidth would be borne out at higher resolutions and color depths. Just like the GeForce, it seems that the M64 is going to be severely limited by memory bandwidth, cutting it clock for clock by half in fact.

However, when TNT2 was rlva, single-texturing was no longer used in most new games. The card used special extremely low latency for the time 4.

Unfortunately, this was not to be the case as both chips support up to 32MB. A low-cost version, known as the TNT2 M64, was produced with the memory interface reduced from bit to bit.
