  1. The title says it all. These are all 32MB cards, and I would like to know the best one and the worst one, any help? Thanks!

    As far as I know, there aren't any difference between TNT2 and Riva TNT2, but there are RIVA TNT2, RIVA TNT2 Vanta, and RIVA TNT2 M64.

    Listed from the least to the most powerful:
    • RIVA TNT2 Vanta
    • RIVA TNT2 M64 (16mb card)
    • RIVA TNT2
    • GeForce2 MX

    For more information about the differences, take a look here...

    Ok, thanks. The RIVA I was talking about was a M64, but it is a 32MB card...that site may not be entirely accurate. Also I didn't see anything about a TNT2 that wasn't a RIVA.

    True, they don't have every card listed, but most of them...

    But was there any cards that weren't RIVA? I sure can't remember them...
    Especially since RIVA actually stands for "Real-time Interactive Video Automation", which you can say were a precursor to the GPU/VPU monicker of today...

    I'm certain I have a TNT2 that does not say RIVA, the weird thing is the TNT2 RIVA M64 32MB has just been put under Windows 2000, and no longer seems to support 3D! But since the GeForce 2 MX is superior to both of them, I'll be replacing the M64 with the GeForce, so that computer actually has 3D capabilities!
