Performance Expectations

With the SDR GeForce and GeForce2 MX offering nearly the same theoretical output, I expect these two cards to be neck and neck with the GeForce2 MX winning in certain circumstances due to its much higher clocked core. I also know that the GeForce2 MX will take a beating in high resolution and color modes due to its poor memory speed. It would be interesting to see how bad a 64 bit SDR version of this board does but at this time we don't have one just yet to show you. The 64 bit DDR solution should score pretty much the same as our 128 bit SDR reference board, while a 128 bit DDR configuration should get rather close to GeForceDDR or even outperform it.
