The other thing that is very different is that this is the first MX card I have seen to opt for the DDR Ram. Now some of you might be saying, "I thought the GeForce2 MX couldn't use DDR memory". Well that is not entirely true. The GeForce2 MX is crippled so that it can use 128-bit/64-bit SDR RAM, or 64-bit DDR RAM, but not 128-bit DDR RAM. So this card uses 64-bit DDR RAM, which has the same effective bandwidth as the 128-bit SDR RAM that all the other cards use. So why did creative decide to go with DDR RAM when it is of no real advantage. I am not really sure of the price differences, but I don't think that was the key factor anyways. I think the reason they went with the DDR RAM was strictly marketing. DDR is a new buzz term. It is a new thing that is generally better than SDR RAM, so Creative probably figured they could use this to sell more cards.
