We were really impressed by the performance of the “real” GeForce 6200, running with 128-bit memory interface. It simply smokes Radeon X300 and all other GeForce 6200 models.
Originally quoted at USD 129, you can now find this model at USD 73. It is a terrific buy if you are looking for a cheap video card for playing games with a relatively good performance – you will be even able to run Doom 3 at a decent frame rate with this card (not enabling image quality settings, of course).
Think of this. You can have a far better performance than GeForce 6200 TurboCache with 64-bit interface and 64 MB and Radeon X300 SE HyperMemory with 128 MB spending just twenty bucks more. Why don’t you go for it?
Because of its terrific cost/benefit ratio, we are giving PX6200TD from Leadtek our “Hardware Secrets Silver Award” for the entry-level video card category. Just to remember, we gave our Golden Award to Radeon X1300 Pro, which is located on a different price range (USD 110~120).
We didn’t review the new Radeon X1300 yet, so we still don’t know how is the regular GeForce 6200 compared to this new chip from ATI.
