    Just found at x-bitlabs :

    SavageXP

    does not look good. They expect the same performance as an MX420-level card.

    Hmm...

    IMHO, the price is so low, because the performance is so low, not vice versa as you seem to think

    You are good at Rethoric, but not as good at Logic, Plato would say you are a Sophist ;)

    Increase price increase performance .. :p

    However looks lik Sis got it better.. about $15 (source xbitlabs) and performance on a par with GF4MX460.

    One thing to note is marke for zeotrope will be highly integrated solutions.

    I'm aware of those details. Now insert sarcasm in my former comments and it might help getting a better picture. :wink:
