    Check the reviews at Tomshardware/Anandtech...the GF4MX is flogged by a GF3ti200 in nearly all 3dmark2k1 tests

    What version of GF4MX? I just tested the MX440 and it was able to beat out the Ti200 card at all times... but not by a lot.

    at least the GF4MX card is close to the GF3Ti200 in current games, but when games start to come out with real DX8 functionality, it may not keep up.

    Have a look at the following link to Anandtech......real good comparison of the cards' performance in 3dmark2001.

    At Tomshardware the diffetrence is more noticeable although both say the MX440 is a good value card.

    What i wnt to say is:
    GF4 MX have a mediocre performance when compared to GF 4Ti.
    I think that Nvidea named MX "GF 4" just for marketing reasons, because it has not a GF 4 technology

    Actually, the chipset core IS the new GF4 technology, but since it is designed as a budget card, they didn't incorporate the Ultra-Fast memory or a lot of the high-end features (DirectX hardware support, per-pixel shading, etc...). And for around US$130, it did manage to perform beyond it's price category.

    Granted, the Ti will be a lot better, but it is designed for those who think that money is no object. If I can get one in for testing soon, then I'll make sure to do a comparison with the cards I used in this review and we'll be able to see what all the bells and whistles add up to. ;)

    btw... here's the review of the GF4MX440:

    ;) I can confirm your experence, I got to play with a 460 day before yesterday.............

    To anyone who hasn't play'd with this one yet, don't assume.....I concide that this is a budget enter, but they built a very nice card this time. Gf 3 guys......sorry, but the 440 does exeeds your cards in some key areas. The 460 is bumped from the 440.
    I was very impress with the 460 in it's side by side Max Pane test comprison with a Gf3 Ti 200, on identical systems.

    I can hardly wait to see these board big brothers........there's my $.02 worh.

    I was just pointing out some empirical data that some well known and respected testers are bandying around....and a lot does depend on the system etc....for example in Darth's Prolink GF3ti200 review he mentions a 3dmark score of around 5100.....I got nearly 5800 with an identical card straight out of the box with the boxed drivers.

    I think all of the evidence that is put forward can only be used to outline functional strengths and weaknesses and the GF4MX are weaker IN SOME AREAS you would not expect them to be, especially given the comparable pricing with some of the GF3s.
