The Hercules Dynamite TNT is a high-performance 16MB 2D/3D graphics and DVD1 accelerator based on NVIDIA Corporation's new RIVA TNT 3D graphics processor. Hercules' superior board design and software support assures outstanding performance and stability.

Hercules further enhances the capabilities of the Hercules Dynamite TNT with advanced PowerDrive drivers to deliver outstanding 2D/3D performance, easy plug-and-play AUTORUN installation from CD-ROM, Hercules Touch desktop management utilities, and Hercules Entertainment Center multimedia utilities.

Complete Driver and Applications Support

Featuring complete and advanced software support for Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0 and 5.0, DirectX® 5 and 6, and OpenGL (ICD), the Hercules Dynamite TNT will be highly optimized for all popular 2D/3D platforms. This includes 2D/3D business applications, professional workstation applications such as CAD, 3D visualization, 3D animation, 3D authoring and rendering, as well as advanced 3D gaming.

Optimized for Windows 98

Hercules Dynamite TNT will also be optimized for Windows 98 to support new features including multi-monitor displays, and On-Now power management.

Leading Edge Technology and Performance

Integrating over 7 million transistors comparable to the complexity of the Intel Pentium® II, NVIDIA's RIVA TNT delivers stunning 2D/3D performance and 3D quality features for Microsoft DirectX 6.0 and OpenGL applications. RIVA TNT's 128-bit 2D graphics engine is designed to provide outstanding performance in popular business applications like office suite packages and web browsers. Addressing the needs of the high performance mainstream graphics market, the RIVA TNT, with its TwiN Texel (TNT) multi-texturing architecture, delivers two pixels-per-clock and is designed to provide consumers with a stunningly realistic 3D graphics experience.

The RIVA TNT's TwiN Texel processing engine integrates a dual-pixel 32-bit color pipeline, 24-bit Z-buffer, 8-bit stencil buffer and per-pixel precision.

Complete set of advanced 3D quality features

Hercules Dynamite TNT also features an advanced set of 3D features and 3D special effects for top 3D performance and 3D image quality. Advanced 3D features include a hardware triangle set-up engine, full screen super sampled anti-aliasing, bilinear, trilinear and anisotropic filtered mip-mapping, and bump mapping.

250MHz DAC and 16MB

With 16MB of high performance display memory on-board and an integrated 250MHz DAC, the Hercules Dynamite TNT will deliver true color up to 1900x1200x32bpp and 1920x1080x32bpp (16:9 display format.)
