NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 M64

Drivers

Like the TNT2 Pro, the M64 uses the same drivers as the rest of the TNT2 series. That means solid OpenGL support and Direct3D under Windows 9x and the upcoming Windows 2000. Support for OpenGL under Windows NT 4 is also among the best. Alternative OS’s, such as Linux and BeOS, are also well supported.
