It is based on the original Kyro graphics chip, the one that came before the Kyro 2 used in the Prophet that we reviewed nearly five months ago and is as such, considered to be previous-generation hardware.

Hercules 3D Prophet XT Review – IGN
The Radeon scores higher than the MX as is typically expected in Giantsbut the highest speeds are achieved by the Kyro 2. Drivers for the different video cards were: If you’re going to be playing games in the lower resolutions, that is, x or x, and considering this is a low-end video card I wouldn’t recommend playing in the higher resolutions anywayyou’ll get acceptable performance levels.
Detonator XP version Notice how there are no GeForce 3 Titaniums included.
The Kyro 1 is essentially the same as the Kyro 2, so you can always see that review for more specific details on the technology behind the silicon. It’s not at the FPS of higher end models, but then if your eye can distinguish between games at and 60 FPS you should be too busy working at the circus to kyyro about gaming. Granted, it isn’t really fast, but it hangs with other available budget cards pretty nicely. Obviously done for the sake kyto cooling, not like it’s there to make toast.
Minimum framerates dip lower on the Kyro-based cards, but the maximum framerates are also higher than the others.
From its roots in pprophet the monochrome graphics standard, Hercules proceeded to pioneer advances in color graphics solutions. Microsoft describes features of upcoming Windows Sandbox Google changes sites to break propjet browsers: Quake 3 tells the same story: OpenGL wouldn’t start for Quake 3, 2D was terribly sluggish in windows, video was low-resolution and low-color and looked horrible. I had expected a bigger difference, after all the Kyro 1 is 60MHz slower and has half the RAM of the Kyro 2, but such was not the case.
Then on to our Giants test which involves a quick run through the multiplayer level “Three Way Island 1” from the Meccs team to catch the minimum and maximum framerates encountered. For 2D performance, release 9. I’d hope they’d fix the problem but haven’t had a chance to pro;het them out yet. Hercules’ product lines include graphics, image and video products, and recently, audio products, mostly for the gaming community.

Here the results are somewhat different. Don’t forget that when you’re looking at the benchmarks, and the price. The only thing of note about the board is that, strangely enough, there is a heat sink, held in place by pushpins, on the back of the card.
If you’re on a really tight budget and you’re buying retail, look no further than the XT. This panel also includes new contrast and brightness sliders.

Of course, being an older chip, it doesn’t even have full Direct X 7 hardware support it lacks of hardware TL and Direct X 8 is completely out of the picture. Here we see the Kyro 2 coming out on top in all resolutions, and the Kyro 1 expectedly lagging behind 3e others. Surprisingly enough, in 3D Markthe Kyro 1 and 2 aren’t very far apart.
