Albatron Medusa Ti4800SE Video Card - Conclusion

While nVidia's GeForce FX continues to stock itself on shop shelves worldwide, we shouldn't forget the "lesser" products still floating around on the market. Albatron being a strong supporter of nVidia has used their Ti4800SE GPU and put it into mass production with their Medusa series of video card. Is the AGP 8x bus video card worth buying or not? Read on and find out!

Conclusion

 

Albatron has once again jumped in head first, and has landed in favorable waters. The Medusa 4800SE is a magnificent video card if you are looking for something on a medium budget.

 

Overclocking on the 4800SE is almost identical to the 4200P Turbo we tested earlier with one exception, memory frequencies were able to go slightly further than the Ti4200P turbo, this is due to the reduced latency of the 4800SE's memory modules.

 

On a design front, it is very similar to the Ti4600 cards out on the market, so if you want one, make sure your board has enough clearance around the AGP slot to accommodate the card.

 

Once again the games and software bundle are somewhat disappointing but costs need to be reduced, rather this than cheap parts on the card.
