Default Rage3D Sapphire 9200SE Review

I've just published my review on Sapphire's low-budget 9200SE Atlantis, a 128mb low-profile card that, while not the fastest on the planet, does has a niche market. Click here to read the review.
As the graphics battle rages on, one market segment is often over-looked by the enthusiast community. The low-end/low-budget market, while not interesting to a lot of enthusiasts, is a very important one for IHV and AIB partners alike because, while a high-end top performer can give your company a name that's talked about in forums the world over, it's the low-end that makes most of the cash.

Looks like the pixel/texel fillrate and memory bandwidth are mixed up for the FX5200 - should be 6.4GB/s and 1000Mtexels/Mpixels. Though looking at the scores I'm 99.99% sure it's a 64bit FX5200, thus 3.2GB/s.
You can easily figure out the memory bus width (if you actually have the card, can be very hard to figure out on the web!). Check the card, if it has tsop (not bga) memory, and only 4 memory chips, it is definitely only 64bit (simply because 32bit-wide tsop memory chips do not exist). It would of course be possible to have 8 chips and still only a 64bit wide interface (with 8bit wide chips or 2x4 chips on the same channel) but such cards don't seem to exist nowadays at all...

yep, TSOP memory, 4 of them on one side of the card. I assumed it was 64bit becuase of the performance, but I wrote 128bit because by all indications I could find on the web, that's what it was. Learn something every day I guess.

fixed the chart to reflect that
