Yeah crap PowerVR technology. The Kyro II doesn't ship with many DirectX 7 features. Let alone DirectX 8. Though it might be cheap, it's still not gonna last the gamer long enough. Not worth it in my opinion!
The Kyro II is a very good chip. It can outperform the GeForce 3 in some cases. But most of the time, it is 30% faster than the GeForce 2 MX. It is obvious, that the Kyro II is thought as a concurrence for the GeForce 2 MX, since it costs ~ 150$ with 64 MB of RAM.
