Unfortunately, the situation connected with such a way of debugging of drivers is unpleasant. It provides the space for a TV-out chip. Switching out a couple of different drivers, I eventually settled on 7. It is similar to the Blue Orb from ThermalTake, but the heat sink has a completely different configuration. Video 3Digests Video cards: That’s because these are budget cards we’re talking about. User Manual; CD with drivers and utilities.

Surprisingly enough, in 3D Markthe Kyro 1 and 2 aren’t very far apart. 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 3s the quality of the KYRO to the least extent among all 3D chips.

Besides, this PCB has a smaller size.

The bit color has brought nearly the victory to the KYRO! 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:.

Besides, the drivers are constantly being debugged. However, activation of the S3TC together with the trilinear filtering makes the losses of the latter smaller. I’d hope they’d fix the problem but haven’t had a chance to test them out yet. Quake 3 tells the same story: Overall I was quite surprised with the way the card performed.

But this technology is just earlier and, therefore, slower in a realization frequency. That is why the memory has a good overclocking potential, but it is, unfortunately, limited by the chip’s speed. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Samsung produces memory chips with a 7 ns access time, which corresponds to MHz.

Surprisingly enough, the Kyro 1 manages to keep up with the MX where maximum framerates are concerned, and even scores higher in x Test prolhet The 2D quality is just excellent. 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.

In X at 75 one can see a sharp image. The concept of the KYRO combines simplicity of the cards, cheap SDR memory, and at the same time, quite high speed results as compared with their competitors, and strong diversity of the performance in different games.

Besides, there are some drawbacks connected with the KYRO’s architecture: On the one hand, it means that the product is improving and developing; on the other hand, there is an example of the ATI RADEON when the product was released with rather raw software. On the one hand, it is pleasant that the debugging process is so fast, but, on the other hand, how dare they release products with raw software?

Write a comment below. For testing we used drivers from STMicroelectronics of 7. It is similar to the Blue Orb from ThermalTake, but the heat sink has a completely different configuration. BioShock Infinite and Metro: For estimation of 3D quality we used the id Software Quake3 v. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. That’s because these are budget cards we’re talking about. OpenGL wouldn’t start for Quake 3, 2D was terribly sluggish in windows, video was low-resolution and low-color and looked horrible.

In bit color the situation is similar to the previous test. The card doesn’t follow the reference design from Imagination Technologies. In the May 3Digest you can find a full comparison of characteristics of cards of this and other classes. But not everything is so perfect. Why do the drivers pass a debugging process only for several popular games?
