We overclocked both cards using one of the most popular video card overclocking utilities, PowerStrip. We were able to clock the Abit Siluro Ti4200 all the way up to 315MHz/625MHz core/memory, while the Triplex Millennium Ti4200 wouldn't go any further than 280MHz/580MHz. This is most likely due to the fact that the Hynix memory used on the Abit card is far superior to the Samsung memory used on the Triplex card as far as overclocking headroom is concerned.
For the price-conscious buyer (most of us), the Triplex Millennium Ti4200 retails for around $AUD450 (around $US250), while the Abit Siluro Ti4200 can be purchased for $AUD380 (around $US215). The reason for the Triplex card being so much more expensive is firstly because it features an extra 64MB of memory, and secondly because it comes bundled with two full version games.
Overall, we were quite impressed with both cards and each had their own various strengths and weaknesses. While the Triplex card is both more expensive than Abit's and a poor overclocker, it features an extravagant software bundle, looks great and comes with an extra 64MB of memory that should come in handy in the future as games advance. That said, in current games the performance difference between 64MB and 128MB is negligible and if you are planning on upgrading your graphics card again in the not too distant future, it would be silly to spend the extra money for 128MB of memory.
While you will all have your own opinions on which card best suits your needs, if I was to go out and buy a graphics card tomorrow I wouldn't think twice about purchasing the Abit Siluro Ti4200. This is because it is an excellent overclocker, has a great feature-set, and isn't expensive. Being a hardware reviewer and enthusiast, I also upgrade my system on a regular basis, thus rendering the Triplex Millennium's 128MB of memory useless to me.
The bottom line is, unless you fancy Triplex's software bundle or don't plan on upgrading again for the next 8 months, it would be a waste of money to purchase the Triplex Millennium Ti4200 over the Abit Siluro Ti4200.
Triplex is solely distributed by Oxygen Technology in Australia and New Zealand. Local distributor wanted.
