Like all nVidia video cards in the pricing hierarchy, it easily beats any of ATi's offerings.

However, I don't know if I like the 512 mb ram minimum requirement. This card is supposedly aimed at the cheap packaged celeron D 2.4's and sempron 2400+ owners who want to upgrade their Intel Extreme 2 video. Those systems are always packaged with 256 mb ram.

Oh well, since nVidia has quadruple the number of partners than ATi, I see the 6200 completely outselling the X300SE anyways. It won't have the success that the 5200 had, but definitely grab the low end market.

I would imagine it will do as well or better than the 5200, but I doubt it will sell as well as the Ti4200 did since there are now multitudes of low to midrange options available.
But like you said, it will certainly be an upgrade to Intel's "Extreme Graphics" for people on a low budget.

Ti 4200 came in a different segment of cards. It was a Hi-end card with a very affordable price (entry level price). 5200 on the other hand is a entry-level product with entry level price tag. so people kind of understand the difference. 5200 was a top seller since there was no equivalent card from Ati in that segment.

6200-turbocache will be a top seller too.. coz again they say its patented techno...hense Ati cant produce equivalent product.

So rolling these cards into the current offerings NVIDIA's line up looks something like this:

6200 128/16
6200 128/32
6200 256/64
6600 - 128
6600 - 256
6600 GT
6800 - AGP
6800 GT - AGP
6800 GT - PCI
6800 Ultra - AGP
6800 Ultra - PCI
6800 Ultra Extreme - AGP (very rare but they do exist)

Did I miss any? I think their current strategy is to *literaly* squeeze ATI out of bussiness.

But is the 6800UE an official nVidia sanctioned spec any longer?

From Anandtech 6200 TC preview :

"NVIDIA chose 512MB as a minimum because PCI Express OEM systems are shipping with no less."

This can really be a succes imo. I could easily see Dell phasing out that X300 for the 6200 TC 64bit.

Are there any reviews of the card yet?

Edit: Ah, saw the previews.
