Big thanks to for supplying us with their GF2 MX400 card!


It have been some hectic weeks around here. We had some cooler reviews and quite a load of motherboard reviews for you the past couple of weeks, but now O� thinks it's time to look at a videocard that has managed to draw our attention, the GeForce2 MX400 made by Inno3D. For those who haven't heard of Inno3D yet ... Inno3D or in full 'InnoVISION Multimedia' is an internationally recognized manufacturer of PC-Multimedia products. (copied/pasted this sentence from the Inno3D website) Inno3D has produced some very fast & competing in the past, just think about their famous Tornado TNT(2) range. You will find out how good/bad InnoVISION handled the GeForce2 MX400 chipset by reading this review all the way to the end!

Although videocards based on the GeForce2 MX chipsets are sold as budget cards, I don't think we should conclude that these cards cannot compete with higher end cards like GeForce2 GTS, Pro or Ultra up to a certain level. Trust me, you'll see what I mean later on ;).

Which tests will we throw at this videocard? Well, we will give you quite a few benchmark results from the most popular and useful benchmark suites available to mankind these days. I'm talking about benches like Quake 3 Arena (demo001 and a torture demo), the almighty 3DMark2001 and VulpineGL.

What you should know and you probably already know, is that a GeForce2 MX video card can exist in 3 different flavors these days. We have the normal "older" GF2 MX cards based on the, how can you guess, GeForce2 MX GPU from nVidia. But not so long ago nVidia decided to release two new versions of this GPU, the MX200 and MX400. If you're eager to know what the difference is between these three GeForce2 MX GPUs, I strongly advise you to read on to the third page of this review. This is where I will explain the difference between the three nVidia brothers.

However, before we take a look at what this lovely videocard is worth in the benchmarks, I suggest we first see what this card is made off ... On to the specs!!
