What was the best tech product of ? The experience says that the memory will allow to overclock maximum by 30 MHz, but on such boards we already obtained MHz.

And memory frequency was set to MHz instead of MHz rated. Since the previous GeForce line shipped without a budget variant, the RIVA TNT2 series was left to fill the “low-end” role—albeit with a comparably obsolete feature set.

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

The following programs were used: By the autumn Hercules Computer was at the edge of existing, it had only a trademark and an office. So, that was a beginning step of the Hercules Computer Technology, which later was called just Hercules Computer. What was the best tech product of ? From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Review: Hercules Geforce 2 MX – Graphics –

GeForce 8 9 It is only in the higher resolutions that the bottleneck on the Herculrs becomes apparent, so if you are still using a a 14″ or 15″ monitor then the MX will probably do all you ask of it and more O:. Since the previous GeForce line shipped without a budget variant, the RIVA TNT2 series was left to fill the “low-end” role—albeit with a comparably obsolete feature set.

The chipset speed was reduced from overclocking to MHz with the memory working at MHz. Of course, the price plays a great role, but price parameters are put into the information at the stage of forming the opinion. This functionality is also present in GeForce but was unpublicized.


Well with all the features looked at it’s time to draw some sort of conclusion. The video card is supplied with a daughter board with TV-out, but it lacks for a connector for digital monitors DVI.

Look, even gforcee2 chipset operation at MHz with the memory working at MHz has poured into much higher speed than the regular mode.

Of course, Retail-package exists as well, but we do not know what’s included there. A simple way to do it is to fix GPU’s clock speed and increase memory frequency. When reducing GPU frequency the overall performance fell just slightly.

The fan is black and looks like a steering-wheel on the background of the blue herculds. Interestingly is that in gforce22 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. Below you will see how strong a memory working speed can influence the overall performance. But this doesn’t give a full-value picture, since memory overclocking is limited too much.

The Hercules MX still uses a cool looking blue heatsink, but this time due to the lower core speed and the fact that the memory access on the MX is only bit it probably doesn’t get warm enough at default settings to require a fan. That’s why I took the opposite way: The time demo then runs as fast as the CPU and graphics card will allow. Now that you have seen the card in question, lets see what it offers in the way of technical specs.


Enough of the pictures for now, and on with the technical bits. But nobody desired to buy them, everybody wanted a famous Hercules’s Ultra.

The GeForce 2 architecture is similar to the previous GeForce line but with various improvements. Retrieved from ” https: Such sky-blue color is typical for Gigabyte cards, a business card of Hercules is a combination of such color of PCB with a softer blue color of heatsinks on the memory chips.

The potential of such GPU is still to much limited by the memory bandwidth. But the time was going, a pioneer in the video-subsystem field became a usual manufacturer of video cards based on the third companies’ chips.

The GeForce 2 also formally introduces the NSR Nvidia Shading Rasterizera primitive type of programmable pixel pipeline that is somewhat similar to later pixel shaders.

The Hercules Ultra fits in a regular AGP slot, and fitted in my Abit KT7 with no problems at all, the blue heatsink’s do look rather snazzy compared with the rest of the rather mundane heatsinks and green PCB’s, it just makes me wish I had a clear case side on my computer so that people could see my cool blue heatsink’s. Such cards are very popular thanks to gofrce2 price lower than that of the counterparts.
