i just got my geforce 2mx
and my scores are sadly so..
for cs its only 15 .......WTF so low
for UT its 30 .......SlOOOOWww
the graphics are good but why are my scores lower than my marks
Is fsaa turned off? What resolution and color depth are you using in those respective games? For UT don't use detailed textures and characters.
07-04-2001, 02:33 PM
NO i think its on auto.. if not how do i check i uninstalled UT so if u could gimme tips for CS it would be appreciated
i am using 1024X728 win me, p3 667, 384mb ram, geforce 2mx msi cheap mobo

lol damn...well let me think, geforce 2 mx, full screen anti aliasing at 1024*768 in unreal tourny??? and counterstrike???? ...sheesh
07-08-2001, 01:38 PM
SHhhhhEEEEEESH? that helps mE HOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
07-08-2001, 06:20 PM
well the geforce 2 mx doesnt have the best bandwidth in the world, maybe your getting a little trigger happy and maxing out settings on your new card, set em all to low and see what happenes

arsenips: ya might want to settle down and refrain from calling members names. We are here to help.
The simple reason that a GeForce2MX would have lousy performance with FSAA on is FSAA is a very GPU intensive process and the GeForce2MX can't handle it very well.

if thats true than how come my firned who has a nvidia tnt 2 ultra get over 40fps in cs
07-09-2001, 06:45 PM
The TNT2 by default would alias different things in the game. Your GeForce2MX is often seen by the software as a GeForce2.
So, the software sees the drivers that are activated and sets up defaults based on the chipset it thinks are there.
Play with some of your driver settings and turn some things off/down.

an example would be..................

dude, how old are you because right now ur not acting anything over 10,but thats not the point here, the point is the geforce 2 mx wasnt meant to be a speed demon, if ur settings are high, i.e.; detailed textures in unreal and such, u might be taxing ur bandwitdth too much, u dont have a slow system, u dont have a fast one either and i dont know how well a geforce 2 mx scales with processor speed, so im not in the position to say "this is the reason its slow" but im just giving some suggestions here, try calling up the manufacturer of ur card, download powerstrip and tell us what clock speed ur card is it, it might be underclocked...who knows, quality control has gotton worse these days, just look at abit...i digress. bottom line is u cant have everything, all the eye candy and the speed, if there are preset settings in the game put em all to minimal and or low, how are ur scores in other games????? 3dmark 2000/2001???
07-17-2001, 04:01 PM
well... the thing is. my comp freezes when i do the 3dmark scores
07-17-2001, 08:55 PM
ah, that sucks...is ur comp oced at all??
07-17-2001, 09:26 PM
sounds more like he has a Geforce 2 MX 200
07-18-2001, 01:12 PM
whats dat mean
07-18-2001, 01:21 PM
overclocked...ya u sure u got a geforce 2 mx 400???
07-18-2001, 07:25 PM
i never said i got a geforce 2 mx400
just b4 geforce 2mx 200-400 came out i got a geforce 2mx
so its 200 i guess
07-18-2001, 08:44 PM
oced..to that question ijust overclocked my cpu to 700 from 667 everytime i go higher. it keeps on saying that myregistry has problems .blahblah
after 10x my madonion 3dmark2001 is.............1864
is that good
07-29-2001, 08:32 AM
Your 3dmark score is higher than mine, but I am destroying you in games...I run counterstrike at 1280 (max res) at 85FPS constant, yet my 3dmark score is like 1400pts.
The MX is hard pressed to play above 800X600, friend. My friend has a Tbird 1.4gz and she put a geforce2mx in..I said what the, well ok whatever. Hopefully she upgrades that sometime.
07-29-2001, 10:46 AM
But for some odd reason NOW when i try to benchmark i only get 1000
i dont knwo what drivers i used to even get that high... but i saw it go that high b4 DMAN IT
is GEFoRCE 2 Pro ALOT better than just Geforce 2
07-29-2001, 10:47 AM
by they way how do i get my fps IN cS
i frekain forgot
07-29-2001, 10:48 AM
I thikn compared to the MX version, yes pro is.
07-29-2001, 11:33 AM
not compared to mx.. mx SUCKS
compared to GTS
07-29-2001, 11:37 AM
well ya didn't say that, and considering you have mx one would thikn you're saying that.
Otherwise no the PRO is not vastly different than the GTS, for your reference:
MX < GTS < PRO < ULTRA < GEFORCE3 (in some cases)
cl_showfps is the command in counterstrike.
07-29-2001, 11:50 AM
Think of the MX cards as being castrated. They take a GF2 card with 4 pixel pipelines and snip snip it down to 2 pixel pipelines. What that means to you as a user is that you get a card that has good graphics, but can give you lower framerates at higher settings.
07-29-2001, 11:58 AM
scojo- good descrip.
07-29-2001, 02:13 PM
for cs i type in net_graph 1
my fps showed but then
it went from 16 to 4....... and stayed at 4 and everything was so choppy
until i finally got rid of it......Y
by the way my mom's friend's brother is teh president of ATI and i was just wondering if i should get ATI RADEON 64 MB VIVO
my mom just told me that...........
07-29-2001, 02:17 PM
if you can get a good deal. if you only play games, your best bet is a pure geforce2 (PRO/GTS/ULTRA) or geforce3 card and an upgraded processor.
I told you cl_showfps 1 is the command, netgraph takes up a little more resources but should not drop your FPS that much.
I'm on a tbird 900 with voodoo 5 and only newer games like max payne/NOLF do I slowdown at 1024 with all detail maxed.
07-29-2001, 11:04 PM
i get a max of 35 fps
