Ofcourse the 9000 is not as good as the 9200, it's alot better!
As shown by the benchmarks, the regular Radeon 9200 cannot beat a Radeon 9000 Pro even though it has AGP 8x. Had there been a Radeon 9000 non-pro in the office for benchmarking, the scores would have been within 2% of the FIC A92. With these scores, its a viable upgrade for owners of a GeForce 2 MX who are looking for another budget gaming card to replace their budget gaming card from 2 years ago, but not too many other people.
As the Radeon 9200 performs worse than the 9000 Pro and 9100 families, those two cards are a better buy on a per dollar basis."""
Here is another article where a 9000 slaughters a 9200:
ATI is smart, they discontinued the 8500, 9000 and 9100 series which performs better overall than the cheaply made 9200.
I recommend a Ti4200 for budget or a 9800 Pro for mid-gaming.
