Inno3D GeForce2 Ti and GeForce3 Ti 200 video cards review
Manufacturer: InnoVISION Multimedia
Sections:
  
2. Inno3D GeForce2 Ti
Like the other video cards that we received by Inno3D, this one arrived in a nice retail package, which consists of the standard rich bundle by InnoVISION Multimedia.



The RETAIL version of the video card includes:

  • User manual.
  • A set of compact discs – Mega Pack Bundle:
  • Drivers for the video card and some helpful programs:
  • 3D Mark 2000 – with this program you can measure the productivity of your video system. You can install the licensed version of the program from the compact disk with the drivers. There you will also find an extra program that will help you to record and organize the results of your tests. The program is called “Result Browser 2000 is available for licensed users only.
  • Intervideo WinDVD 2.6 - With this program you can watch DVD films on your PC, the provided licensed version supports 2 channel audio only.
  • InnoCreation MediaGallery volume one – A nice selection of high quality images, video films and music.
  • Ulead Photoimpact 5 – Image Editor.
  • Colorific & 3Deep – Programs that will help you to calibrate your monitor.
  • Full game Midnight GT by Rage Software !
  • Visual experience:



    As you can see, Inno3D look after the customers and provides free of charge software package which is far not bad.
    After we paid attention to the bundle, it is time to take a closer look on the most important thing in the box - the video-card Inno3D Tornado GeForce2 Ti, based on the GeForce2 Titanium chip by NVIDIA Corporation.


    The card is black in color, which seems to have become the standard for Inno3D and breaks the monotony of all other GeForce2 Ti based products. Active cooling, known from KYRO II video cards as well as from some GeForce2 MX models, is used and I am glad to say that it copes well with the appointed task.


    The back side of the card is of no interest, black in color and the most peculiar thing is the stiker of Inno3D :). You can see the cooler on the chip in the next photo:


    The chip is NVIDIA GeForce2 Ti manufactured by 0.15µm technology and according to the specifications it is the model of highest class of the GeForce2 series. It is true that it has the same working frequency as the GeForce2 Ultra Chip, i.e 250Mhz, but the latter is manufatured by 0.18µm technology, which means lower working frequencies and more released heat. That is why GeForce2 Ti is overclocked better and will give better results with a better cooling system. A working frequency of 305Mhz was achieved with the standard cooling, but there were many problems with the stability. At 300Mhz all went smoothly, except for the Quake 3 Arena, which had problems, and that is why the tests with this game were made at 290Mhz. I am impressed by the overclocking capabilities of Inno3D Tornado GeForce2 Ti.


    This time the memory used in the videocard's hardware is made by SAMSUNG, has access time of 5ns (nanosecs) which is purely 200Mhz. Since we are talking about DDR SGRAM, the effici?nt working frequency is two times higher, which simply means 400Mhz. A stable working frequency of 450Mhz was achieved by overclocking. At higher frequencies (from 455-460Mhz up) either there appeared some artifacts or the system hung up.






    After we took a look on the Inno3D Tornado GeForce2 it is time to take a look on its big brother - Inno3D Tornado GeForce3 Ti 200.
