Inno3D Tornado GeForce3 Ti200 in the test: What does the little brother of the GeForce 3 do?

Technology

In the test, the Tornado GeForce3 Ti200 against their two fiercest competitors, the GeForce2 Ultra and GeForce3, from Nvidia.

The table immediately shows that the GeForce3 Ti200 is actually not a real 'MX', as it was often called in advance, but actually just a lower clocked GeForce3. Unlike the GeForce2 MX back then, the GeForce3 Ti200 offers all the features of its big brother and is differentreally only in the clock speed of him. That is why I would not classify it as a real mainstream chip, as it is well above the mainstream market due to the use of DDR RAM and its other features with over DM 600, -. But now away from the general data and towards the practice.
