MSI heeft gisteren hun MSI GeForce 256 8809 geintroduceerd, een GeForce kaartje met SDR ram die maar een klein beetje laat komt.
Boomgames heeft een review gemaakt van deze kaart en als je de quote hieronder leest zie je dat er iets goed aan deze kaart is: hij is goedkoop :
You may think we're crazy, but in actuality we're far from it. MSI is supposed to release this product on Monday, May 1.
But why would a card be released just as a next-generation product of the same genre roll out? There's a simple answer to this question - they release it for cheap and offer it to the gamers who's wallets can't support an upgrade on the day every new product comes out.
When a gamer is going to surf the next generation wake, he's going to want some waves. If you're going to wait, you don't want a product that won't run the current generation of games at all, you want something that can still scream.[break] Naast Boomgames heeft iXBT hardware deze kaart ook bekeken en ongeveer dezelfde conclusie getrokken als Boomgames:[/break]Drawing the final conclusions we would like to say that although this product can't boast any remarkable features, it is relatively cheap, which gives it a really good chance to be demanded. However, the situation with the graphics cards with SDR-memory, which appear so late in the market, forces most graphics card manufacturers to drop the prices significantly in order to sell at least something. Not to mention the fact that the cards on NVIDIA GeForce256 with SDR-memory feature very narrow memory bus bandwidth, which prevents the chipset from using its potential in full.
