The recent popular fascination with
While the GeForce3 Ti500 is definitely faster because of a faster chip clock (240 instead of 200 MHz) and a slightly increased memory clock, the Ti200 comes with reduced clock speeds (only 175 MHz core / 200 MHz memory), which makes it resemble the less interesting GeForce3 product. The GeForce3, as we know it, is destined to vanish, and that's why the prices for these cards, unadorned by the fancy "Titanium" title, could drop considerably.
If you can live with that, you will be very happy with a GeForce3 model like Abit's Siluro GeForce3 Vio - it doesn't carry the fancy name Ti, but it comes with lots of interesting features. Obviously, Abit also seems to believe that the "normal" GeForce3 will not be outdated as soon as Nvidia would like it to be.
