Albatron Ti4200P Turbo Video Card Review

With companies now putting their best foot forward on the nVidia line, and not afraid to put an overclocking product on the line, Albatron have come up with what I call the best all round GeForce 4 video card to date.


Design wise, the card is huge, the same size as a Ti4600, so make sure your motherboard can handle the extra length of the card.


Being based on the Ti4200 core reduces the cost quite substantially. While it is somewhat slower in clock speeds to the Ti4600, it features all the exact same architectural features at the Ti4600, just clocked slower, raising the clock speeds to 4600 levels are a simple process, and even further if you have a well ventilated case.


The use of high quality memory modules only adds to the splender of the card. Overclocking is made simple with good quality components.


We did find the games bundle somewhat disappointing, but it's nice to see the games being cut rather than cutting the quality of the components on the card.


- Pros


Fastest Ti4200 card


6 Layer PCB for enhanced Signal Quality


2.2ns BGA memory


Ramsinks on front and back for ram cooling


Video In and Out


Superb overclocking results


- Cons


Small Games Bundle


Large PCB
