De mannen van GamePC hebben een smakelijk lapje tekst weten te schrijven over de GeForce2 MX, nVidia's low budget videokaart. De conclusie is erg positief: veel performance voor weinig geld, en daarnaast ook nog 'tweak friendly' :
Nvidia's GeForce2 MX is a great little card, period. It's not the best performing on the market, but it's price to performance ratio is enough to satisfy most home gamers. At default speeds, it's the speed of a GeForce SDR, and overclocked to the speed of a GeForce DDR, showing the card to be quite a bargain. Considering the prices of a GF2 MX card and a GeForce SDR are about the same price right now ($120 for a 32MB variant), the MX has a load of features that make it more attractive than it's predecessor. Incredibly low amount of heat produced, a 2nd generation T&L engine, ability to handle dual monitors with TwinView, and it's low-form factor all make it an attractive card.
The GeForce2 MX combined with an AMD Duron makes for quite a lethal combination, and we suspect that a lot of gamers on a budget will find the combination very attractive. Considering most Duron chips are retailing for under $150 and GF2 MX cards will retail for around $120, that's a small price to pay for in upwards of 90 FPS in Quake III high quality. Of course, if you're getting a processor in up-wards of 900 MHz+, it's just smarter to go with a GeForce2, since the MX card will be the bottleneck in the system, due to it's 2-pixel pipeline and SDRAM memory.
