Hercules Prophet MX Review!
Posted on: 07/24/2000 02:36 PM

We've all heard about nVidia's latest creation, the Geforce 2 MX. Aimed for the "budget market", it is supposed to holster the power of a Geforce 256 but have loads of new, swanky features. FiringSquad got their hands on Hercules Geforce 2 MX board, the Prophet MX. It's pretty... a wonderful Blue PCB definitely gives it an interesting look.
The GeForce 2 MX is built on a 0.18-micron process, which reduces the power requirements of the chip. Couple the reduced power with a slightly slower 175MHz core clock speed, and you can see why the MX does not even require a heatsink, let alone a fan to cool it. Hercules apparently thought better of this and added a small heatsink anyway.
It's cheap, it performs well, and has a nice feature set. Will it perform with a Geforce 2 GTS or a Voodoo 5? A resounding no. However, if you're looking for a cheap upgrade from a previous generation of video card, this could be a viable option. Check it out for yourself over here.
