The GeForce2 MX400: NVIDIA's Hold On The Mainstream


SYSmark 2000

The first benchmark is not very useful for graphics benchmarks, as most graphics boards do not differ in terms of 2D performance and have not done so for some years now. However, I decided not to remove it as many of our readers would like to to see these results anyhow.


The Aquamark benchmark looks pretty amazing and shows awesome realism under water. To achieve this, the processor is always under quite a heavy load, making the graphics board less important at the resolutions of 640x480 and 800x600. As soon as it comes to 1024x768 or above, you can see that only the GeForce2 GTS is able to sustain the frame rate.
