NVIDIA GeForce 8200 Preview
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
TweakTown has just posted a preview of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce 8200 which, surprisingly enough, is an AMD-oriented chipset with integrated graphics.
Heres an excerpt:
Todays testing has been more of a preview of the GeForce 8200 chipset rather than a review, as drivers still have to officially hit the market along with overclocking results. We have reserved our final opinion for a later date due to this.
On the plus side, the early performance of the chipset is extremely promising, and with driver tweaks and the possibility of being able to overclock its likely that NVIDIA has a strong contender on its hands, especially for the Vista environment which requires more power than what currently seems feasible.
The GeForce 8200 has slightly better gaming performance than the AMD 690G, but otherwise the two chipsets perform pretty equally. Mind you, this was a pre-production product, so there is still room for improvement.
