MSI GF4Ti4400-VTD Review - Overclocking & Conclusion

Everyone has been raving about the GeForce4 Ti4600 cards since they hit the market, but they're EXPENSIVE! So what is a hardcore gamer on a limited budget to do? Come join Asher "Acid" Moses as he takes a look at the MSI GF4Ti4400 Video Card. It's just possible that the question asked above will have a very nice answer, and at about US$100-150 less than the monster Ti4600 too.

Overclocking

 

We overclocked the card using one of the most popular video card overclocking utilities, PowerStrip. We were able to get the card to run stable at a core/memory clock speed of 303MHz/680MHz using the default cooling that comes stock with the card. This is a very impressive overclock and considering the fact that the Ti4600 runs at 300MHz/650MHz it would be a much wiser decision to purchase a Ti4400 and overclock it to Ti4600 speeds rather than purchasing the more expensive Ti4600 which is already running close to its limit.

 

Conclusion

 

Overall, I was very impressed with the MSI GF4Ti4400-VTD. It features the most elaborate software bundle I have ever seen included with a video card, provides high performance and is feature packed. The DVI and TV outputs were a nice addition for those that like to run dual monitors, an LCD monitor or just display their desktop onto their television. The Video-In and Video-Out (VIVO) functions are also great for the high-end gamer that also likes to do some video editing.

 

The card proved to be a great overclocker, being able to run past Ti4600 speeds with no signs of artifacts or instability. At a price of around US$300, the card is quite expensive and might be out of reach for some of you. However, if you want a feature packed, high performing video card and can't afford a Ti4600, I highly recommend you check out the MSI G4Ti4400-VTD.
