Matthew Witheiler heeft bij AnandTech een review online geketst van de Asus V7100/T GeForce2 MX kaart, uitgerust met composite en S-video TV-outputs en 32MB 6ns SDR Hyundai SDRAM dat maximaal 210MHz trok. Over de performance is dus weinig te klagen, nadeel is wel dat vanwege de extra outputs en uitgebreide software bundel de Asus V7100/T een relatief hoge prijs draagt:
So, what else makes the V7100 more expensive than some budget MX based cards? Well, for one the software bundle that comes with the V7100 series cards is much better than the nonexistent bundle found on many other GeForce2 MX based cards. Sure, it comes with the standard DVD software decoder and Colorific, but ASUS also throws in one of the hotter games of this year: Soldier of Fortune. This alone essentially saves you at least $30, that is if you were going to buy Solider of Fortune on your own. Then again, it does not do you too much good if you already have the game or are not interested in it.
The final thing that the extra cost of the V7100/T goes to is quality. If you recall, we started this review discussing the excellence of ASUS's products, and the V7100 is no exception. Incorporating a heatsink, thermal grease, quality memory, and custom drivers, the V7100 has definitely been thought out by ASUS, as as many of their other products have. So, if you are on the market for a TV-out capable GeForce2 MX, you can not go wrong with the ASUS V7100/T.
