Unfortunately, this was not to be the case as both chips support up to 32MB.
NVIDIA Riva TNT2 M64
However, when TNT2 was launched, single-texturing was no longer used in most new games. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Of course, dropping down to a bit interface reduces the cost of both chips and boards considerably, which is exactly why NVIDIA made such a compromise.
Tesla GeForce 8 9 Some games also had exclusive 3D features when used with Glide, including Wing Commander: But solution was mostly known from low-cost and low-quality boards without separate memory. 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.

This wrappernamed Unifiedwas not as compatible with Glide games as real 3dfx hardware, but it was also the only card available other than a 3dfx card that could run Glide software. Prophecyand the popular Unreal had a troubled development history with regards to Direct3D and was plagued by issues such as missing details in this mode.
This was a distinguishing point for the TNT2, while the Voodoo3 was marketed under the premise of superior speed and game compatibility. Just like the GeForce, it seems that the M64 is going to rnt2 severely limited by memory bandwidth, cutting it clock for clock by half in fact. TNT2 graphic speed was crippled by missing local frame buffer and slow access to the main memory. GeForce 8 9 The northbridge ALi M with graphic core was commonly paired with a MD soudbridge and was prepared for the low-cost Socket motherbards.
The internal architecture is still bit, just like the TNT2.
A low-cost version, known as the TNT2 M64, was produced with the memory interface reduced from bit to bit. Instead, the 64 in M64 refers to a memory bus that is bits wide.

This was far and away the highest clocked TNT2 model released. Voodoo3 cards render internally in bit precision color depth. Frame buffer memory operated at J64 and used bit bus.
The effects of reduced memory bandwidth would be borne out at higher resolutions and color depths. Voodoo2 cards were more than a year old, but, when combined together, could still outperform rriva Nvidia technology.
