Computers have processors for processing information that it is fed. Due to the various jobs the computer is supposed to do some applications need their own processors to do their job without interference. Graphic applications are one of the applications that may need their own processors. Nvidia RIVA TNT2 is one of these graphic processors. They utilize a 128-bit pipeline that supports the computational throughput that is required for current as well as future applications that are graphically intensive. Nvidia RIVA TNT2 supports up to 32MB of VRAM and underwent a process shrink to enable improved clock speeds from 90 MHz to 150+MHz. The improved clock speeds are the ones responsible for the improvement in the performance. Nvidia RIVA TNT2 offers a higher quality feature as compared to other graphic processors. It has a 32-bit color in 3D and also supports 2084x2084 pixels textures.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
This processor has 2 single texturing pipelines (2x1) as compared to other graphic processors which have single dual texturing (1x2). This basically means that it is faster and efficient with games that put a single texture on a polygon face at once.
