Inno3D Tornado GeForce2 Titanium in the test: rip-off or useful addition?


Inno3D Tornado GeForce2 Titanium

Nvidia has succeeded in Which is not exactly surprising in view of the technical data ch is to place the GeForce2 Titanium between the Pro and Ultra. However, it has to be said that it is closer to the GeForce2 Pro than to the Ultra, especially at high resolutions and 32-bit color depth, which is also extremely understandable given the clock rates of the memory. Above all, however, in 16-bit the GeForce2 Titanium can use its faster chip clock compared to the Pro and can sometimes set itself apart from it quite clearly. Nvidia cannot quite meet the advertising slogan 'The performance of a GeForce2 Ultra for the price of a Pro'.

The card Inno3D was able to fully convince us. There was nothing wrong with the processing, the software bundle, the documentation or the stability. The TV-Out, which did its job flawlessly, is downright luxury for such a card at a price of around DM 300. We were pleasantly surprised by the Tornado's overclockabilityGeForce2 Titanium. With a clock rate of 280/475 it can overtake a GeForce2 Ultra. With additional cooling of the RAM modules, one or the other MHz would be possible here. However, it should still be mentioned here that you can overclock a GeForce2 Ultra, so that it would probably take the lead again.

But should you buy a GeForce2 Pro, Titanium or Ultra? I definitely advise against the pro. The new Titanium is clearly the better choice here. It costs just as much, but offers better performance. If you are toying with a GeForce2 Ultra, the biggest problem is likely to be to get hold of a card in stores now. The performance of the Ultra is certainly a whole lot better, especially in the high resolutions and 32Bit, but you have to pay 200, - more for it, but you don't get the two thirds more performance that you pay for more. Anyone who has the money for a GeForce2 Ultra is probably thinking about buying a GeForce3 (Ti 200) right away. In the future, however, you will probably no longer have the choice between GeForce2 Pro, Titanium and Ultra, as soon only the Titanium will be on the market. Of course, the GeForce3 cards offer the better performance, but at the moment they can be paid for accordingly. Furthermore, the performance of a GeForce2 Titanium is still completely sufficient at the moment. As long as there are no games that explicitly require GeForce3 features, this will probably not change anytime soon.

Nvidia has to accept the accusation that the GeForce2 Titanium is actually completely out of place on the market, if the GeForce2 Pro and Ultra were not taken off the market.

But if you are still thinking about buying a GeForce2 Titanium, we can do itUnreservedly recommend Tornado GeForce2 Titanium from Inno3D.
