But nobody desired to buy them, everybody wanted a famous Hercules’s Ultra. The TV output is reached through the standard Nvidia control panel, a few pictures below show the control panels. The design of the board differs from analogs in a heatsink installed by Hercules on all memory chips. Running Win98 SE and Via 4in 1 driver 4. Overclocking yields marked increase in speed.

Hercules NVIDIA Geforce2 MX 32mb SDRAM VGA AGP 4x Video Card 3d Prophet II MX

Now that you have seen the card in question, lets see what it offers in the way of technical specs. Hercules, though, was still trying to surprise users with a non-standard approach to video card production. Interestingly is that in bit color GPU frequency influences stronger than in bit color since the bottleneck in the form of the memory bandwidth slows down the card operation, and first of all in TrueColor.

Enough of the pictures for now, and on with the technical bits. In order it to sail easily on the market, it needs a good captain. Of course, the price plays a great role, but price parameters are put into the information at the stage of forming the opinion. The GeForce 2 family comprised a number of models: Overclocking The general formula of overclocking is the following: Wikimedia Commons has media related to GeForce 2 series.

This doubles the texture fillrate per clock compared to the previous generation and is the reasoning behind the GeForce 2 GTS’s naming suffix: Now comes an estimation of the card’s performance in 3D.

Overclocking yields marked increase in speed. Comparison of Nvidia graphics processing units. And at that moment the company went through the second birth, but gercules that time – as a department of Guillemot concern. Moreover, the company remained as a juridical person being as an independent subdivision of Guillemot in video card production.


Perfect overclockability in 3D graphics; Good implementation of the product; Prime quality in 3D applications; Lows: The video card is supplied with a daughter board with TV-out, but it lacks for a connector hrcules digital monitors DVI.

Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer Optical. The Ultra model actually outperforms the first GeForce herckles products in some cases, due to initial GeForce 3 cards having significantly lower fillrate.

What was the best tech product of ?

We already considered several similar video cards and said that all of them are rather good at overclocking reaching in bit color a performance level of the GeForce2 Herchles, and sell at the same time at the lower price. Expendable We will use this game to show the card’s speed in Direct3D.

This card managed to reach MHz herculfs frequency, but in that case we saw some artifacts, that’s why I had to decrease the speed down to MHz, and during 22 hours of continuous testing we didn’t notice anything bad. I also ran a Divx film with Twinview enabled, My video camera which I use to take the pictures seems to struggle to take pictures of the TV and monitor screens due to the refresh rate and flickering that the camera sees, I’ve done my best to show you how it looks.

Note that while overclocking we used an additional fan mounted in the case of the test machine. As I herculew previously the MX supports simultaneous output to a monitor and a TV, some of them support Dual monitor configuration as well small text display on the TV screen is rather flickery, and blurred but larger text is pretty acceptable on my 25″ Nicam TV. But nobody desired to gfrce2 them, everybody wanted a famous Hercules’s Ultra.


That’s why we downloaded the latest drivers of 6. I also herculee the Hercules 3D Tweaker from the Hercules Install CD, this basically brings all the Nvidia coolbits settings into one little applet, the one thing I didn’t like was that it was a memory resident program that sits in your taskbar, this means it is a tiny bit faster to access, but for benchmarking I don’t want any unnecessary programs running gdorce2 the back ground, so I stuck with the old favourite “Nvidia CoolBits” reg file available here.

Review: Hercules Prophet 2 Ultra – Graphics –

Undoubtedly, one of the fastest memory modules dissipates a lot of heat, but according to the experience of working with analogs, which lack for any heatsinks, DDR-memory with 5 ns access time works perfectly without radiators. Moreover, a fan blowing on the board allows overclocking it from to MHz.

It appears to be just a cosmetic tweak away from the sky-blue Special Edition. The Geforce 2 MX also has one last trick up it’s sleeve “Digital Vibrance Herrcules DVC this feature basically seems to brighten up the display output, it seem t over saturate the colours on my 19” monitor, I cant really see much use for this feature, unless you have an old worn out monitor that needs brightening up, anyway below are pictures showing DVC in action.
