Video Card Messup

  1. I got my "GeForce2 MX200" last year, and I finally got around to benching it the other day. When i compared it to other benchmarks it was considerably higher than the others. So I messd around with it and all, when i finally took off the heatsink and it was actually a MX400 ???? has this happened to anyone else with this card?????

    What are the stock core & memory speeds? How many mb of ram on it? What brand is it?

    I've heard of a few MX400's actually being 200's, but not the other way 'round. :confused: Good deal for you!

    Got a link to your bench? :cool:

    The 200mhz core signifies something there.

    Fillrate of a MX 400 is approx. 400m pixels/sec. (200mhz core x 2 rendering pipelines).

    And the 2987 score (assuming 3DM2K1 SE) is very questionable for a MX 200, obviously, considering the 64-bit memory path would cripple the performance equivalent to almost that of a TNT2 Pro/Ultra.

    Interesting. The 64mb were 166 memory & the 32mb were 183.

    I've seen a few MX400 64-bit show up over at MO & the scores w/P4's is ~1500 max! Based on your score > that'd have to be a 128-bit MX400. ;)

    VisionTek made their own memory, so if you can see VisionTek on the mem or their V mark ...

    You got Riva Tuner: ? It has a place that will identify the mfg by reading the serial #. It'll also allow 3000+ @ MO. :grinthumb

    Since that conference call where nVidia stated they were sitting on million$ of SDRAM, there appears to be quite a few OEM 64-bit 64mb MX400's showing up in HP, Compaq, EMachine & Dells.

    FWIW, my MX400 runs @ 230/387 (193.3 MPLL dbl'd) with air cooling. That's 8-10fps more than stock in most situations.
