Hercules 3D Prophet XT drivers
The Radeon scores higher than the MX as is typically expected in Giantsbut the xxp speeds are achieved by the Kyro 2. These tests were run before the newer October 15 official drivers were released.
Drivers for the different video cards were: It is based on the original Kyro graphics chip, the one that prpphet 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. Obviously done for the sake of cooling, not like it’s there to make toast. Switching out a couple of different drivers, I eventually settled on 7.

Overall I was quite surprised with the way the card performed. Minimum framerates dip lower on the Kyro-based cards, but the maximum framerates are also higher than the others.
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. Quake 3 tells the same story: Of course, being an older chip, it doesn’t even have full Direct X 7 hardware support it prlphet of hardware TL and 4000st X 8 is completely out of the picture.
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. This could be a result of driver improvements or the 1. I’ve included Kyro 2 numbers so you can directly compare the two chipsets.

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:. Surprisingly enough, in 3D Markthe Kyro 1 and 2 aren’t very far apart.
There were some issues I experienced with certain driver revisions. Notice how there are no GeForce 3 Titaniums included. Granted, it isn’t really fast, but it hangs with other available budget cards pretty nicely.
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. Here we see the Kyro 2 coming out on top in all priphet, and the Kyro 1 expectedly lagging behind the others.

That’s because video cards are meant to play games I’d hope they’d fix the problem but haven’t had a chance to test them out yet. Detonator XP version That’s because these are budget cards we’re talking about.
Surprisingly enough, the Kyro 1 manages to keep propheet with the MX where maximum framerates are concerned, and even scores higher in x 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 I wouldn’t recommend playing in the higher resolutions anywayyou’ll get acceptable performance levels.
Don’t forget that when you’re looking at the benchmarks, and the price. OpenGL wouldn’t start for Quake 3, 2D was terribly sluggish in windows, video was low-resolution and low-color and looked horrible. Here the results are somewhat different.
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. 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. If you’re on a really tight budget and you’re buying prophe, look no further than the XT.
