CL GeForce2 MX with DDR

This is not directly related to SMP and/or dual processing, but dammit, it's sweet! According to this page at ixbt Labs, Creative will be bringing their new GeForce2 MX based product to market in late November. The beauty of this thing is that it uses DDR memory. As you might (or might not) know, Nvidia's spec for the MX only supports SDR memory, and all the MX cards currently on the market use SDR memory (usually clocked at 166mhz). The new 3D Balster GeForce2 MX on the other hand, will use 143mhz (effectively 286mhz) DDR SDRam instead. ALL FOR $130 USD MSRP!

As a side note, I have a few MX based cards here inhouse that I have been playing around with. While the MX isn't quite as big and bad as its big brother the GTS, the cards are definitely nothing to sneeze at. Look for more info shortly, but at this point I can honestly say that for <$150 USD, you can not go wrong with an MX based card.
