Palit GeForce FX 5200: newer doesn´t always mean better...
Though seeming senseless, marketing and intention to get rid of older memory types play their rather important roles. Today itís about installing 128Mb of memory to GeForce FX 5200, which might not be that compulsory for GF4MX-level cards. And in return one can use slower 5ns chips.
But Palit went further, having installed 6ns memory with 166 (333) MHz nominal clock rate. Isnít this senseless? As you know GF FX 5200 clock speeds are 250/200 (400) MHz!
Of course, makers decreased memory clock to 150 (300) MHz. As a result we get not even GF4 MX440, but something like MX420 or MX440SE with very slow memory.
But thereís 128Mb! Well... inexperienced users might be tempted, and we hope these cards wonít be expensive.
