Absolutely amazing! And if you can enable all of the 8 pipes then it will be even moreso. The only letback I see is the memory, too bad there can't be an ultra model with better memory, but I guess that might lower 6600GT sales :D

Any word on an AGP version?

Cool, i hope this card comes with agp version.
And its clocks great, i think its a nice card for my little brother :rolleyes:

Excellent article, thanks :)

It seems like 6200 is gonna be extremely properly if performance levels stay that way. The only concern about 6200 is its lack of compression...

5200 got hit hard on that, hopefully 6200 will be better.

btw, oc looks impressive :)

All the pic of the card show -3.6 TSOP on the cards. -3.6 is ratied at 275 and with volt modding it could get to 320. What yall show it 365, so how? :wtf:

lol something smells fishy there. :D

maybe the sample cards are special editions :D *not surprised*

Bah, it seems that the companies are not in hurry to introduce new AGP parts. They have to clear their inventories of old products and they may try well to force a new upgrade cycle.

The result are pretty impressive though the price tag is still a bit high. In the sub 100$ market the 5200/5500 are left to compete against the 9550/9600SE which are better bangs for the buck.

Maybe NVidia will push out a new die for the 6200 instead of reusing faulty NV43 cores.

Evnetually they probably will, I just hope it isn't completely bad. I hope they can include at least 4x1 PS/2 VS Architecture, with 4 ROP. It's die size has to be in range of the X300 parts. Maybe once they get the 0.11 micron up to full speed, they can pull a 9500 -> 9600.

There will be an AGP version of the card. The PCI express market is not very large and producing a card limited to it is stupid. I suspect the AGP version will be released about a month behind the PCI Express version.

Sweet card, though i do think a better price would 99$ MSRP, i wouldn't spend 149$ on a 6200, when i could get for just a bit more a 6600 or X700, and for 50$ more i'd buy a 6600GT, but at around the 150 mark i think i'd get the X700, i mean, it has +100 to the core frequency and 200 on the memory side when compared to the 6600. :D

That's not entirely accurate, since this card is pretty expensive to produce, they can just leave the FX 5200 as the AGP card for the budget sector on AGP, despite it's poor performance in gamer's eyes, it still better then integrated and frees up system ram. That would leave enough inventory to fill the PCI Express orders of the 6200. There could be NV4x part for the budget sector eventually though once Nvidia designes the card to be cheap enough to produce for this volume sector.

nVidia's board partners will produce an AGP version using the bridge chip which is provided by nvidia. To many people still use AGP and will for a long time. Hell, you cant even buy a PCI Express mobo for the Athlon 64 yet.

Kind of expensive for the bottom-feeder in the 6x00 hierarchy.

How are you so sure? I know they are capable of it as Nvidia has the HSI. But just becuase they have the capability doesn't mean they have to do it do they? The problem is an NV43 is not likely to be able to surivive without extra power form the power supply. So it's likely to require a molex connector, which is kinda demanding a bit much for an budget offering. Geforce 6200 right now are disabled NV43, this looks like a make shift solution. It's feel too expensive to produce. Limiting production of this card to PCI Express would solve problems of demand as Nvidia is likely to have enough defective cores to supply this interface. It's not like the FX 5200 currently has any competition in the budget space on AGP the best ATI offering there is Radeon 9200 and that's a DX8.1 card.

The AGP market is large, yes I know that why they aren't likely to be able to meet demand with this part, considering it's designed for the mainstream arena? A more realistic answer is that Nvidia might produce a new core enitrely that's natively 1 Quad, with most of the NV4x feature set. With few enough transistors to be able to fit within the power limits of AGP.

They can afford to leave out poor old AMD, it's market share is only around 15% versus Intel 80%. This card is likely to go to Intel OEM deals first to be supplied with Dell and what not for the time being.

Sad, this card won't hav an agp side, nv6200-agp wuld hav sold in huge numbers in my country,
Almost 94% people in my country(INDIA) use the Fx5200 n MX440/Mx4000
which they buy/bought for around $150.
6200-agp,for them, wuld hav been a perfect card to upgrade to.

the 5200 will remain the entry level AGP card

6200 will be PCIe only
