Review: STMicroelectronics Kyro II 64MB
Author: JT Smith
Anandtech: "A new contender is out on the video card market. Attempting to take some glory away from the aged immediate mode rendering platforms that prevail today, STMicroelectronics has paired up with Hercules/Guillemot to produce the tile based rendering 3D Prophet 4500 based on the Kyro II graphics chip. Could the $149.99 Kyro II card beat the $340 GeForce2 Ultra? Before we stated testing, we didn't think so either."
