TNT2 graphic speed was crippled by missing local frame buffer and slow access to the main memory. While the TNT had always performed well on Intel based systems, it previously lagged behind in terms of performance on then current AMD based systems. External AGP 4x port for the separate graphic card was lacked. However, Creative included a unique software package that allowed the user to run software that used 3dfx ‘s Glide. The card lacked TV output, however. GeForce 2 4 MX.

The Detonator drivers also fixed compatibility issues with motherboards of the time, and improved overall software compatibility. The northbridge ALi M with graphic core was commonly paired with a MD soudbridge and was prepared for the low-cost Socket motherbards. Tesla GeForce 8 9 In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Glide was still considered the best 3D gaming API available by both gamers and developers.

After all, unlike nvidiia rest of the competition, Nvidia had come close to the Voodoo2 in performance in some games, and beaten it in 32bit image quality.

These drivers were a huge success. The 3dfx MiniGL driver was not a fully featured OpenGL driver, but a wrapper that mapped certain OpenGL functions to their equivalents in Glide, and was able to attain a speed advantage because of that.

Some games also had exclusive 3D features when used with Glide, including Wing Commander: Computer-related introductions in Nvidia graphics processors Video cards. The Detonator drivers included 3DNow! At the time, Quake2 was the benchmark for performance and the 3dfx-made Voodoo2 enjoyed a large performance difference over the TNT because it had riiva Nvidia’s driver development with TNT was the beginning of their notably aggressive efforts to maintain the best set of drivers possible.
