No matter how many times I ran the tests I kept getting back similar results. The e-GeForce numbers were taken from an older review; it was tested with a slightly older beta reference driver build, version With a video card already as fast as the Ti, there seems to be little point in overclocking the card. It was without doubt the most high-pitched video card fan that we had ever heard. Dozens of manufacturers have released cards based on the chipset.

We’ve yet to satisfactorily work out why the connector is now elongated. The only minor difference here is that the GPU cooler has been modified slightly from the reference version so that the top g4i4600 is clear.

A quick download of the As with many other manufacturer’s, MSI has chosen to use nVidia’s v4ti4600 design. The software bundle is extremely impressive to say the least.

What was the best tech product of ? Even though the memory g4gi4600 the Ti runs very fast the BGA chips handle the heat a little bit better than their TSOP-II cousins do, and that is probably why there is no ramsink requirement I would add on aftermarket coolers personally.

We ran the lobby tests to check for memory overclockability. The Creative Geforce4 Ti GPU fan caused quite a stir here at Hexus, due in part to its striking looks and, perhaps more importantly, by the sound it emitted during operation. Even at MHz memory speed, the G4ti460 was warm but not burning to the touch, we’re not sure how beneficial extra heatsinks would have been.

I’d think the differences between the cards here could be a result of the different driver revisions or just the randomness of benchmarking a system. Not content with three excellent games, you are also furnished with seven demos including amongst others, Serious Sam, Comanche, Ghost Recon, and Swat 3. There’s nothing else special to note about the card. Sticking close to the reference design usually means that little additional thought has to be put into the layout of the card, therefore cutting costs and saving time for the manufacturer concerned.

We’ve always found g4ti400 comfort in MSI’s videocards because they never come decked out with cheap gimmicks in an effort to lure customers – rather MSI’s videocards tend to compete on reliability, overclockability, and competitive prices. We’re sure that the overclocking potential will improve as yields slowly become better.

Both are still the highest-scoring cards I’ve seen in this test, though. I’d guess that this was also a “‘driver thing. The novel approach, first seen on the reference card, ensures gg4ti4600 the GPU doesn’t become too warm.

The results were sharp, clear and eminently watchable.

We arrived at a very stable speed of MHz core. The g4yi4600 of the second, external TMDS ensured that both displays were crystal clear at high resolutions. Nothing to see here folks, move along. Still, even if it is just from a curiosity point of view, we were intrigued to see what it could do. Performance-wise, a Ti is a Ti The rest of their software bundle is really quite nice, and this is something that I think more manufacturers should do.

A small drop in scores here on the MSI card, but nothing huge. As a matter of fact, this was the only real performance anomaly I experienced during testing. Privacy policy and Terms of Use. The box itself is a representation of the graphics card industry today.
