    I can hear the anti-Microsoft/conspiracy theory-ist/Sony fanboys warming up their WHINE engines now.....like saving the consumer $100 is a BAD thing.

    Thanks for correcting me Beefy. The only thing I hate more than being wrong is passing on MIS-information. The following is from Tom's Hardware guide (to back up Beefy & set my record straight)


    "..the Xbox's XGPU (NV2A) uses a derivative of the graphics processor GeForce 3. The architecture of the NV2A is situated between the NV20 (GeForce 3) and the NV25 (GeForce 4). It actually has a four-pixel pipeline and two vertex shaders. By comparison, the NV20 offers four pixel pipelines and one vertex shader, and the NV25 also has two vertex shaders ...the graphics architecture of the Xbox is somewhat less powerful than GeForce 3 Titanium 500, except for the additional pixel shader unit, and far behind the GeForce 4 Ti 4400 and Ti 4600."

    Whole acticle here: http://www4.tomshardware.com/consume...4/xbox-04.html
