In Serious Sam 2 the difference rises as you set higher resolutions, which we can attributed to the difference in memory amount and memory interface, but MSI HD Pro handles Antialiasing and Anisotropic Filtering really well. Intel P4 Northwood 2. We tried playing a few HD movies and the CPU usage ranged from 30 to 50 per cent, which is understandable if you consider that this an ancient single core processor and playing HD content is only made possible thanks to the HD Pro card. Fudzilla It News and reviews. As this card comes without the temperature sensor on its core, we measured it using the temperature probes placed on the GPU block and on the heatsink fins on the back of the card.

Yet another difference is the 4-pin floppy connector which can’t be found on the PCI-Express version.
ATI’s HD Pro GPU, dx2600pro less commonly known as RV, is made in the 65nm manufacturing process which is the main prerequisite for this card to be passively cooled, since it produces less heat and doesn’t need a large heatsink like, for example, Sapphire’s HD Ultimate.
World in Conflict at maximum details is just not made for this kind of system, so in order to get at least double digit results we had to put the game on medium settings. In Serious Sam 2 the difference rises as you set higher resolutions, which we can attributed to the difference in memory amount and memory interface, but MSI HD Pro handles Antialiasing and Anisotropic Filtering really well.
We tried playing a few HD movies and the CPU usage ranged from 30 to 50 per cent, which is understandable if you consider that this an ancient single core processor and atk HD content is only made possible thanks to the HD Pro card. A passive card for mature PCs.
When compared to the X we can talk about some performance issues, but these cards aren’t in the same class or generation for qti matter. Of course, the main advantage of a passive cooling solution is it’s completely silent, so if you are a “noise-freak” a passive solution is made for you.

More in this category: As this card comes without the temperature sensor on its core, we measured it using the temperature probes placed on the GPU block and on the heatsink fins on the back of the card. The memory, on the other hand, is a different story. When talking about passively cooled cards it’s always worth mentioning that you should assure good airflow inside the chassis when using such cards, as passive cooling solutions rd2600pro in most cases less efficient than their active counterparts.
For this test, we decided to use an older system which we like to call “old faithful,” based on Intel’s PE socket chipset paired with Mi P4 Northwood processor working at MHz.
That difference is noticeable in 3DMark 03 where the HD Pro has marks less, and in the 3DMark 06 where the radeno is lower, marks. The only difference between this card and the MB version is memory size; the cooler and the clocks are identical.
MSI RXPRO AGP tested
Last modified on 26 January Rate this item 1 2 3 4 5 0 votes. Stock Intel Cooler Memory: Even then, the cards, as well as the entire system, just didn’t have what it takes to run this demanding game. It was interesting to see that the temperature on the GPU block is the same as the one on the heatsink fins, which means that the heat is effectively transferred from the GPU to the heatsink.
The card handles Windows Vista and its Aero Glass without any problems.
Bear in mind temperatures are measured in an open case environment, and in a closed case good airflow is a must. We were very skeptical concerning the performance of this cooling solution, but MSI has managed to pleasantly surprise us. It’s a silent AGP card with a reasonable price and price is often what really matters in the upgrade market. Intel P4 Northwood 2. Conclusion The card is capable of running most games at reasonable resolutions, its cooling is effective and the temperatures are surprisingly low.
The reason for which we decided to pick this system is the fact that the AGP market is dying, and that those in search for the AGP card either want to make a nice HTPC out of their aging system or simply just want to refresh it a little.

The memory works at a lower clock of MHz MHz effectiveand the rx22600pro has a bit memory interface. Fudzilla It News and reviews. Benchmarking and Conclusion All Pages.
The main credit goes to the large heatsink, as well as the fact that the RVPro core doesn’t heat up too much, thus making it a perfect candidate for passive cooling.
Raxeon only noticeable difference between msl AGP and PCI-Express versions is the lack of Crossfire connector and the small Rialto bridge chip placed on the back of the card.
The reason for this is simple, the AGP port can’t supply enough power to power this card.
MSI RX2600PRO-T2D512E – graphics card – Radeon HD 2600PRO – 512 MB
As we mentioned in the beginning, MSI has decided to go for a passive cooling solution which uses dual heatpipes to transfer the heat away from the core to the heatsink located on the back of the card. Games Games like F. MSI was kind enough to send us the MB version.
Simple math comes into play:
