3DHardware.net heeft drie TNT2 kaarten op een rijtje gezet: de Creative Labs 3D Blaster TNT2 Ultra, de Leadtek S320 II 32Mb Pro en de AOpen PA3010A - 16Mb. Van deze drie kaarten heeft de Creative als enige een Ultra TNT2 aan boord, op de standaard kloksnelheid van 150/183MHz. Deze kaart zal van de drie geteste TNT2's waarschijnlijk ook het best verkrijgbaar zijn in Nederland, daarom wat info over het ding:
The 3D Blaster TNT2 Ultra is a cultivated gaming board, being based on the TNT2 Ultra chip clocked at 150MHz for core and a massive 183MHz for the memory. The TV-Out function works just fine, and a S-Video cable is included in the box. With the drivers, which are based on the 1.81s (still in BETA though), come the Creative Labs "Blaster Controls", their version of the control panel applet. It houses all the tweaks found in the Leadtek and AOpen applets, and also offers a overclocking slider, but only for the memory. Instead, Creative Labs have a separate applet for overclocking, which limits core tweaking up to a maximum of 175MHz, and memory up to a speed of 200MHz. Of course, by editing with the registry settings, you can bypass those restrictions and set the speed to whatever you may want to. Being an TNT2 Ultra board, we set out to see how much we could get out from the 3D Blaster TNT2 Ultra, and we were pleasantly surprised. Although others have failed in overclocking this board, we did not encounter that problem. We could run the card at a whopping 190/210 (core/mem), without extra cooling. There is no doubt that we can go even higher, although we suspect more cooling would be needed for that task.
