Drivers for the different video cards were: Surprisingly enough, in 3D Mark , the Kyro 1 and 2 aren’t very far apart. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Detonator XP version If you’re on a really tight budget and you’re buying retail, look no further than the XT.

However, activation of the S3TC together with the trilinear filtering makes the losses of the latter smaller. Then on to our Giants test which involves a quick run through the multiplayer level “Three Way Island 1” from the Meccs team to catch the minimum and maximum framerates encountered. For comparison the results of the following cards are given: I’ve included Kyro 2 numbers so you can directly compare the two chipsets. Notice how there are no GeForce 3 Titaniums included.

That is why the memory has a good overclocking 4000st, but it is, unfortunately, limited by the chip’s speed. User Manual; CD with drivers and utilities. 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.

But the memory works at MHz, as well as the chip, because the frequencies of the processor and the memory are synchronized. These tests were run before the newer October 15 official drivers were released. The GPU is equipped with a roundish cooler with an effective fan. Here the results are somewhat 40000xt.


In the box you can find: We have already written that the peculiarities of the architecture of this chip doesn’t allow for 4000xt the frequency. Don’t forget that when you’re looking at the benchmarks, and the price. The card is traditionally sky-blue. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. I’d hope they’d fix the problem but haven’t had a chance to test them out yet. 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 only thing of note about the board is that, strangely enough, there is a heat sink, held in place by pushpins, on the back of the card. Conclusion I must only add to the words said above that activation of the S3TC in the Direct3D doesn’t practically worsen the quality the most 4000xt errors are corrected in the latest versions of the drivers.

The activation of the S3TC hasn’t helped here. Installation and drivers Test system configuration: The Radeon scores higher than the MX as is typically expected in Giantsbut the highest speeds are achieved by the Kyro 2. Why do the drivers pass a debugging process only for several popular games?

In the May 3Digest you can find a full comparison of characteristics of cards of this and other classes. If you’re going to be playing games in the lower resolutions, that is, x or x, and considering this is a low-end video card Kyfo wouldn’t recommend playing in the higher resolutions anywayyou’ll get acceptable performance levels.


Quake 3 tells the 4000ct story: Switching out a couple of different drivers, I eventually settled on 7. In X at 75 one can see a sharp image. The Kyro 1 is essentially the same as the Kyro 2, so you can always see that review for more specific details on the technology behind the silicon.

The difference consists in the arrangement of the memory chips.

The card doesn’t follow the reference design from Imagination Technologies. 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 kyroo.

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.
