Thread: Nvidia's GeForce 6200

    The one message that Nvidia has pushed throughout its GeForce 6 series launches is that it's a company that learns from its mistakes. In the GeForce 4 architecture launch a few years ago, consumers and hardware reviewers alike lambasted the company for releasing entry-level cards that were marketed under the GeForce 4 brand, but didn't support the same features as the high-end cards. The end result was that consumers who bought the entry-level cards weren't able to enjoy the advanced DirectX features supported by higher-end cards in the same family.

The GeForce 6200 features four pixel pipelines, three vertex pipes, and a 350MHz core clock. While its processing power may pale in comparison with that of the 16-pipe GeForce 6800 Ultra, the GeForce 6200 can be had for one-fourth or one-fifth the price. Estimated retail prices will range from $129 to $79, depending on the memory configuration. The card will compete against the the Radeon X300 line of ATI cards, which are also four-pipe solutions.

    Do you think it would be worth it to upgrade my GeForce4 Ti4200 to this?

    Yes, assuming your mobo has PCI Express capabilities.

    (i've been out of the loop way too long on this, so dont flame me if that last statement was idiotic).

    If he's currently got a ti4200 it will be old enough that his mobo was pre PCI-X, so that's not an option.

    However, hopefully there will also be an AGP 8x version at some point. They've done it for the top of the range 6800's, it doesn't really make sense that it won't be available for lower range versions too.
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Dont worry about the PCI-X for a while..i'd say not until 2006 would it be a big thing.
