Default Re: TNT2 M64 Pro drivers

Thanks for the driver location, I'll grab that after work.

I bought this card off trademe (NZ equivalent to ebay) for $10 to put into a P3 Celeron 600; putting much else faster into it would have been a bit of an overkill, especially since there are no plans to play any of the latest games on this machine anyway, we're giving it away to some less-fortunate friends of ours who have 11-year old twins, so new violent games aren't really appropriate at this stage. I did want to try and get a Geforce2 or 3 or whatever off trademe, but they were all above the price-range I was willing to pay (all went for $25+).

We're also giving them a P3 933, in which we've put a brand new Radeon 9250, so if they ever did want to play the latest games, they'd be able to do so on that one.

Right now I've tried out Re-Volt (1999) and Freedom Force (2000) on the Celeron, and I've gotten settings that make Re-Volt play fairly smoothly, but FF isn't being so co-operative, so an overclock here would help to smooth things out a bit.

So, do you know of any applications I can use to overclock this thing?

**** Update ****

I discovered the performance of this card really was not what I was expecting, it was clocked at a measly 100/110 core/mem. After overclocking it to the maximum allowed by PowerStrip it was still slow and crappy, so I swapped it out for a Geforce2 that was in a linux server that has no need for 3d graphics capabilities, and that works a lot better.

For anyone else who might come across this thread, the TNT2 30.82 drivers can be found here and the program you can use to overclock is called PowerStrip, just google it.
