Especially as having tested this paging unit, one can use it in future architectures, which to all appearances will be equipped with such units without fail because of DX Next requirements. Contents Video card’s features Testbed configurations, benchmarks, 2D quality Test results: Test results Before giving a brief evaluation of 2D, I will repeat that at present there is NO valid method for objective evaluation of this parameter due to the following reasons: Half-Life2, ixbt02 Test results: Lesser complexity and consumption played their positive role. However, the initial chip architecture with a crossbar treating the graphics bus practically as the fifth channel of the memory controller may have been capable of this from the very beginning starting from NV40 or even earlier. This is certainly beyond any logic and common sense besides, FillRate tests demonstrated that there are actually 4 pipelines.

Theoretical texture fetch speed 1. It should be noted that Alexei Nickolaichuk, the author of RivaTuner, has quickly thrbocache the nv44 support into his utility. But what’s the result?

GeForce with TurboCache

Later on we shall verify this assumption with tests. But the prices do not allow competition. Yes, sure, the frequencies are high. We turbocachd remember old cards with the same memory capacity, which were significantly simpler.

Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. So, we have 3 vertex processors, as in NV43, and one instead of two independent pixel processor operating with one quad 2×2 pixel fragment.


Andrey Vorobiev anvakams ixbt. And another question of mine: That is, it would have been logical for the chip to have 8 pipelines, but 2 ROP.

Let’s hope the prices will settle down. And the strong point — programs with long and complex shaders and anisotropic filtering without simultaneous MSAA. Video 3Digests Video cards: We are going to investigate into this issue. In this case video cards’ performance obviously depends very much on drivers, TurboCache being provided by them.

TechPowerUp Review Database

This tendency will be expressed particularly painfully, much more prominently than in the — that is one can say that these accelerators depend strongly on applications. They were initially included into the NV4X turbocacne, there was just no point in using them on the level of drivers in senior cards with faster, more capacious, and larger local memory.

GPU frequency — MHz.

Half-Life2, ixbt01 Test results: Only an amateur can install ONE! To all appearances, vertex and pixel processors in NV44 turbocachf the same, not to take into account declared revisions to achieve effective system memory addressing from texturing and blending units.

GeForce 6200 TurboCache

It’s a sad picture so far for the new video cards, which are also more expensive at that preliminary prices. Complete compliance with NV40 in the set of supported features and the architecture of vertex and pixel processors is laudable, there is no need to take into account NV44 peculiarities in programs. In case of such architecture everything falls to its place. That’s why their performance may still grow. FarCry Regulator Test results: But why on Earth cut the bus down so much and raise the frequency?


I mean the substrate, not the dye itself, which has also grown less though that’s clear, the number of pipelines is two times less. The cooling system is primitive: Half-Life2, ixbt03 Test results: Test results Before giving a brief evaluation of 2D, I will repeat that at present there is NO valid method for objective evaluation of this parameter due to the following reasons: It’s hard to judge how justified 64 and even bit memory buses are — on the one hand, this move cuts the price of the chip package and reduces the number of rejected chips; on the other hand, the price difference between PCBs for 64 and bit is still lower than for and !

We shall check all these assumptions and talk about the prices further. What concerns our samples under review together with Mitsubishi Diamond Pro sbthese cards demonstrated identically excellent quality in the following resolutions and frequencies:
