6200 PCI vs 2400 PCI = 6200 Wins.....

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I compared the 2 cards to see which one is faster, performs well, and the 2400 is a crap ass card. This is also copy and paste from another forum, just to point out the problems with the 2400 card, and also how the 2400 doesn't have hardware opengl acceleration, i don't even believe visiontek knows about it.
.................................................. ..

WOW, just a quick update. I told Visiontek about 3 problems with the 2400 HD Pro PCI card, here are the problems:

Problem #1 = In Dxdiag tool, when testing the Direct3dX7 test, the spinning cube is rotating strangely, moving choppy, jerking around, seems to have problems with DirectX7. Now in the direct3DX8 and Direct3DX9 test, the spinning cubes are rotating normal and smooth. Due to the cube spinning slow in direct7, this is the reason why certain games old and some new have problems.

Problem #2 = In PC wizard 2008 which btw is not a broken program, under the OpenGL tab it says "No Hardware OpenGL available/ No OpenGL Hardware Acceleration, only Software mode "

Now this is the main problem which i believe, either Visiontek doesn't know about it, they are not aware of it. Or the 2400 Hd Card really doesn't support hardware acceleration. With this problem, certain games runs like craps, OMG i can't even began to tell you, about 50% of all my games either crash, or perform poorly. Games like Unreal GOLD have major trouble when heavy textures comes into play.

On the Flip Side: Games like Timeshift & World Racing 2 , 2 games which demand a Powerful GPU works well on the 2400.

Problem #3 There is no correct stable driver for this PCI card, looking in the driver list, it says Visiontek 2400 HD PRO PCI, but for some odd reason the driver is not compatible, ***? I am using a Visiontek ati radeon 2400 pci card, but for some stupid reason the driver is not compatible........
..................................................

Now some folks says its my computer which is the problem, now here is a great example on why its not my computer.

BIOSHOCK, I get 5-12fps playing the game, which is really unplayable. So looking at other reviews on this card and playing the same game, other people with more powerful computers then me, have trouble playing the game, they get the same fps which i do. Also, someone said that the Visiontek doesn't perform good because of intel motherboards, who knows about that.

Crysis Unplayable really on the 2400 and the 6200, but the 6200 card performs better when playing Crysis, hmmmm

Tomb Raider Legend and TRA = Unplayable , choppyness on the 2400, but works just fine with the 6200, no choppyness, no slowdown, perfect really
..................................

And last: Going back to the wonderful BFG Geforce 6200 256MB PCI card, all the problems which i was having with the 2400 with games, well i don't have that problem anymore. And surprise surprise, looking into PC Wizard 2008, it says my Geforce 6200 supports Hardware OpenGL acceleration. I also notice the 2400 PCI card has field of depth problems, when i am face against the field of view of heavy textures, draw distance, it seems to increase fps, but when i turn around, and look at the scenery, games have problems rendering the scenery, my guess because of the lack of open gl hardware features.

The bottom line: Visiontek made a crap ass PCI card, that lacks certain features, or they need to release a driver that enables hardware opengl acceleration.

On a final note: Maybe none of these problems are in the AGP or PCI-E versions, but in the PCI version, the 2400 HD card sucks..........

I have done studies on both cards, and just for a fact, the 2400 only needs 25watts, well it only draws that much power. Believe me its my not my CPU or PSU, because even tho the 2400 can't play almost 50% or more of my games, it played Timeshift, world racing 2, and other games with ease, even better then the 6200. So obviously, its a driver problem , not my computer.

People don't test out NEW GPU or new computers on old computers or old games, so their information, their system requirements are never accurate.
................................

So i am back using my 6200 and planning to buy the Diamond Stealth X1550 PRo until one of the new Geforce 8 pci cards come out.

do me a favor.
take your amazing PCI graphic card out of your computer, and break it in half.
and then throw your case out the window.
please??

We don't care, we really don't. We are tired of you posting about how many FPS you get or how your 6200 PCI card performs, we know PCI gaming sucks but you seem to be clueless to it. Just stop posting, please

I agree with everybody else, but my friend was looking into getting a PCI Card.
I believe the 6200 doesn't support SM3.0, would that cause problems/what games need SM3.0?
