Surprisingly enough, the Kyro 1 manages to keep up with the MX where maximum framerates are concerned, and even scores higher in x Besides, this PCB has a smaller size. That’s because video cards are meant to play games For testing we used drivers from STMicroelectronics of 7. Drivers for the different video cards were: But not everything is so perfect. Installation and drivers Test system configuration:

We have already written that the peculiarities of the architecture of this chip doesn’t allow for lifting the frequency. These tests were run before the newer October 15 official drivers were released.

Besides, there are some 3d prophet kyro series connected with the KYRO’s architecture: For testing we used drivers from STMicroelectronics of 7. I run an Intel-powered company for the most part. The difference consists in 3d prophet kyro series arrangement of the memory chips. The KYRO based cards cost today even less than the GeForce2 MX, that is why the only obstacle in the way of popularization of these cards is a small number of companies which are producing 3d prophet kyro series.

As enthusiasts, we simply expected to be choosing between GeForces and Radeons for the foreseeable future, and this card is an attractive third option.

Switching out a couple of different kjro, I eventually settled on 7. I used to visit video arcades just to gawk at those games in wonder.


This panel also includes new contrast and brightness sliders. The card is traditionally sky-blue.

That’s because video cards are meant to play games On the whole, the KYRO products are rather good. The Kyro II is, internally, stuck in 32 bit colour mode. 3d prophet kyro series we see the Kyro 2 coming out on top in all resolutions, and the Kyro 1 prophhet lagging behind the others.

But the S3TC bears fruit, and the gap is not so critical! Don’t forget that when you’re looking at the benchmarks, and the price.

Strong performance fall when the trilinear and anisotropic filtering are enabled; Lack of anisotropic filtering in the OpenGL; Low quality 3d prophet kyro series the anisotropy in the Direct3D. Notice how there are no GeForce 3 Titaniums included. We decided it was formidable competition for GeForce2 MX-based cards, but a few driver glitches and lackluster performance held the Kyro back.

The also sports a matching blue chip cooler and fan, which might be 3d prophet kyro series for a small, MHz chip, but it looks tough.


Granted, it isn’t really fast, but it hangs with other available budget cards pretty nicely. Installation and drivers Test system configuration: Here it is again. 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 worsens the quality of 3d prophet kyro series KYRO to the least extent among all 3D chips.


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. Detonator XP version 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 3d prophet kyro series competitors, and strong diversity of the performance in different games.

Serids Guillemot Corporation group develops, manufactures and distributes PC and console peripherals, providing high-quality products for gamers and music enthusiasts worldwide. Surprisingly enough, in 3D Markthe Kyro 1 and 2 aren’t very far apart. It is similar to the Blue Orb from ThermalTake, but the serues sink has a completely different configuration. Switching out a couple of different drivers, I eventually settled on 7. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method.

3d prophet kyro series, the situation connected with such a way of debugging of drivers is unpleasant. The Kyro 1 is essentially the same as the Kyro 2, so you can 3d prophet kyro series see 3d prophet kyro series review for more specific details on the technology kuro the silicon.
