Graphics card plans from Asus

Asus will be launching 2 new graphics cards this month: VANTA2000 and V300C. Both cards are designed for the low-cost market and also use corresponding cheap chips. The VANTA2000 will be based on the Nvidia Vanta LT and offer a meager 8MB video memory. The V300 uses a SiS graphics chip with the designation SiS305 and offers at least 16MB of graphics memory.

Asus turns 2 this month bring new graphics cards onto the market: VANTA2000 and V300C. Both cards are designed for the low-cost market and also use corresponding cheap chips. The VANTA2000 will be based on the Nvidia Vanta LT and offer a meager 8MB video memory. The V300 uses a SiS graphics chip with the designation SiS305 and offers at least 16MB graphics memory. Much more interesting than these low-cost cards, however, are the V7100 and V8800. The V7100 uses the new NV11 alias GeForce 2 MX. It offers a decent 32 or 64MB of graphics memory and should be in stores in July. The V8800 is expected to see the light of day in October. An NV20 with 64 and later 128MB is used on it. After these new releases Asus will stop the production of GeForce 256 based cards (except 64MB) in September. TNT2-based cards, on the other hand, should be produced by the end of the year.
