X-Micro Impact T4200 Video Card Review (Page 1)

With the release of the GeForce4 Ti series video boards, the world has had some very good graphics adapters. But not everyone can afford the US$400 entry fee for the Ti4600. Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he takes a look at the X-Micro Impact T4200 Video Card. It features the Ti4200 GPU and is available on the streets for half the cost of its big brother. Can this be the "Sweet-Spot" of price -vs- performance? Let's find out!

Though a lot of folks may not know who X-Micro is, this could change in the near future. X-Micro is a graphics card manufacturer that has been around since 1999, and they have a set of standards that is getting harder and harder to find in today's marketplace. They actually believe in hardcore quality control. What this means to you is that each video board is tested several times before it's boxed up and shipped off to your favorite retailer. In today's world of mass production, this is a pleasant change of pace.

But being a company that cares about what it makes doesn't automatically make it a winner. Which brings us to our contestant of the day, the X-Micro Impact T4200 video card. It's based on the new GeForce4 Ti4200 GPU so it should have power right out of the box. But then, being an avid enthusiast, it is unlikely that we would want to just leave it at default settings!

Come join the fun as we take a little deeper look at this new release and see if it's worth the expense of upgrading that trusty video card you have right now.
