Features:

Wasn't overclocked.

I want to mark that the newer variant of this card with analog SIF filter is available now.

This card is the same as the first one, but video output and VGA jack are placed in the daughter board instead of PCB just to improve 2D quality in some very high resolutions. Read all details in our review of SUMA Platinum cards.

After the release of GeForce256 cards, NVIDIA representatives have began to understand that following releases wouldn't replace previous cards due to the short period between the new releases. Therefore it has been decided to build a so-called 'ladder' of the market niches, so that every accelerator would have belonged to one of them according its price and perfomance. The release of GeForce2 GTS has been marked by a much higher price for them than for any other of the previous cards. It has been meant that a cheap solution named GeForce2 MX would follow the release of more expensive variants to occupy a low cost niche and to replace more expensive and less faster GeForce256 cards. So, the Summer'2000 has brought us GeForce2 MX that is still very popular today. And though this exact GPU is the lowest, its speed and perfomance features very well correspond to the low price for such cards. Cards with faster memory occupy a better position, and that is important from the point of perfomance.

For the 20th of October'2001 the latest drivers from NVIDIA are 15.50, 20.80, 21.83 and 21.85. As the drivers differences are equal for all MX/MX400 cards, there's no sense in comparing drivers separately for each of these cards. See NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 32 MBytes section for more information about drivers.

You can compare screenshots taken on this card with reference ones taken on NVIDIA GeForce3.
