    in a few weeks i'll have one of the new G4 powerbooks in my hands (not mine of course, but i get to play with it), along with some of the new G4s all with the GeForce2 MX. i'll be sure to do some timedemos and see if i can get a conclusive radeon vs MX trial.

    There's no question that the Radeon will win. It's not a budget card like the MX. It performs more like a GTS. I have one and it ROCKS!!! Q3 1280X1024 60fps BABY!!! :)

    mx

    Anyone actually know how much that thing runs for? I've got some money and am in need of a cheap and effective video card. The mx sounds tempting if it is anywhere near the same price as the PC version (which I doubt), but I'll bite the bullet and spend more on the Radeon if they're about the same.

    Apparently the nVidia chips are better at high resolution, high texture modes.

    Not the MX Cow. It may match the Radeon in low-res/color, but slower in hi-res/color, not faster. PC benchmarks prove it. :)

    nVidia

    I hear that all their new cards will be hybrid. In that case an NV20 will beat anything.

    I just hope that a card based on the NV20 chipset is out as a BTO during MWNY 2001...

    I predict we'll see 1GHz G4s that use DDR memory. :)
