GeForce 2 MX 100/200 problem(?)

I've got a AMD Athlon 1,4GHz Processor with 512MB DDR ram(pc2100). I've also got an GeForce 2 MX 100/200 (running at 4x AGP)with 64MB's of RAM. And I only get around 1600 3DMarks in 3DMark2001SE. I've seen several tests @ tomshardware.com, and they get around 2500 with a slightly better system. Why is my GeForce so damn Slow?

  1. Did you see the tests for a geforce2 MX or MX 400 maybe?

    I believe the Geforce2 MX 200 has far slower memory, I think due to a crippled memory bus. Or maybe even SDR ram, I can't remember for sure.

    Way slower anyway.

    ------------------
    Radeon 9500 w/256 bit memory bus @ 367/310
    AMD AthlonXP 2000+
    3dMark03: 3439
  2. the mx400 slightly has faster clock speed than the mx200.

  3. in all cases, you should upgrade it. budget GF4 Mx or 9000pros are cheap these days
  4. slightly?

    mx200s ran on a 64bit memory bus, with slower clocked ram

    mx400s came with 128bit SDR at 166mhz.

    made for (what was back then) a huge difference in performance

  5. The MX200 has a 64-bit memory bus and 6ns SDR memory. That makes it's memory bus as slow as the TNT2M64, and HALF the speed of the original TNT2. In fact, when I overclocked both my MX200 and TNT2 to the max, the TNT2 performed better. And the TNT2 was 2 or 3 years older!

  6. the gforce 4 mx has very simular performance to the geforce 2mx i would not recomend takeing the MX upgrade path get a ti or an fx.
  7. beat you to it
