Gigabyte Maya II Radeon 9500 Video Card Review

Conclusion

 

Having used two of the ATI high-end video cards, I can only say the power generated and the frame rates experienced left me astounded. Here is a company that has faltered in the past, so coming back up so quick to snatch the crown and to do it with this much of a lead is amazing.

 

Gigabyte has put together yet another fantastic product that was hard to fault. Designed with a money saving PCB, placing high end cooling on to the VPU for overclockers to enjoy and a software bundle that if normally only for high end cards placed in the middle section was without a doubt the icing on the Gigabyte victory cake.

 


- Pros
Fast
More power than Ti4200 Cards
Cheaper than Ti4200 based cards
AGP 8x interface
DX 9 ready

 

- Cons
No memory sinks
