Voodoo3 cards render internally in bit precision color depth. This is dithered down for the bit framebuffer, which is then postprocessed by a 2x2 box filter in the RAMDACdubbed "bit equivalent" output AKA Vanta TNT2 32MB AGP marketing.
The postprocessed nature of the effect also meant that framebuffer captures AKA Vanta TNT2 32MB AGP not display it, which lead to erroneous claims equating TNT2 bit quality to Voodoo3 when in many titles of the day Voodoo3 bit quality was closer to TNT2 bit quality in practice.
This means that in games which only put a single texture on a polygon face at once, the TNT2 can be more efficient and faster. However, when TNT2 was launched, single-texturing was no longer used in most new games. Voodoo2 cards were more than a year old, but, when combined together, AKA Vanta TNT2 32MB AGP still outperform then-current Nvidia technology.

The card used special extremely low latency for the time 4. However, Creative included a unique software package that allowed the user to run software that used 3dfx 's Glide. What gives?
The Model AKA Vanta TNT2 32MB AGP is a cut-down version of the full TNT2; it retains the TNT2's bit data interface, but has only a 64 bit memory interface. In English, this means the Model 64 is notably slower for 3D than the "real" TNT2, but retains outrageous 2D performance - high speeds AKA Vanta TNT2 32MB AGP high refresh rates at resolutions higher than by and high colour depths are easy for the Model 64, although these resolutions are of little use on monitors with a diagonal of less than 21 inches.
The Model 64's stock performance is not too bad for the money, and, like the other TNT flavours, it's possible to run it faster than stock and really stretch your pennies.
How fast does it go? Read on. What you get In the great tradition of budget cards, AKA Vanta TNT2 32MB AGP Butterfly's box makes plain that the contents are, indeed, a graphics card, but say nothing about what card it actually is. You don't get much help on opening the box; there's the card in its antistatic bag, one CD, and that's it. We don' need no steenkin' manual.
TNT2 Vanta M64 4x agp jumper setting? Motherboard Forums
The CD contains drivers for tons of video cards and an installer AKA Vanta TNT2 32MB AGP that detects what Windows version you have and which of the various cards you're using, and lets you install the proper driver. The card itself is an unremarkable looking AGP board, which appears to be pretty much exactly the same reference Model 64 design that's sold by a few yum cha video card makers.
The Model 64 has a smaller processor and heatsink than you get on the full TNT2 cards. There's no fan on the heatsink, and it'd be tricky to add one; a teeny 25mm fan would fit right on, but these move close to no air, so it'd be a better idea to just crank up the ventilation in the entire case I describe how to do so herethereby AKA Vanta TNT2 32MB AGP everything cool, and have done with it.
Setting up Installing the Butterfly card was very simple, because my already-installed v2. If you're not presently using the Detonator drivers probably because you're not using a TNT card at allyou may need to change to the standard Windows VGA driver before yanking your old card in order to effect the changeover without having to deal with Safe Mode restarts.
By and large, though, setting up the Model 64 should be no problem, because even the stock drivers on the included CD are perfectly adequate. This compares with only and MHz for the cheaper Vanta. Despite this, it has default core and memory clock speeds of and only MHz, respectively.
The Butterfly overclocked pretty well. AKA Vanta TNT2 32MB AGP suspect it could have gone rather higher, but TNTClk doesn't go beyond MHz and hangs if you wind the slider up all the way The core speed is what matters, and the maximum stable core setting for the card I checked out was MHz, or only barely more. Performance I gave the Butterfly board a brief workout with my favourite quick benchmarks, WinTune 98 and Quake 2.
For the Quake tests, I ran the standard Demo2 timedemo, to get an idea of single player framerates, the offensively complex Crusher demo, to see what the worst case scenario was, and the less demanding but still hefty Massive1 demo to see what actual multiplayer performance might be like.
