Summary: I AM a Serious, Serious Sammer! Passed the ti 4600 thru my system. Got me a Radeon treatment. Read the numbers, check out the web sites. Run the tests. yea, yea, yea. Your eyes don't lie. I can see the way Croteam wanted me to see the bangs, bursts, flashes, flames and explosions. This card gives me bang for the buck ! Can't afford to upgrade every time one of them comes out w/ something new. Dang good card. Follow instructions and read the forums. Dang good card.
Summary: Finnally I backed up my words and got a new video card. A very special one indeed ;-). MAN is it woopin fast that's all I gotta say. It defenitley beat out my ol' geforce 2:). And includes support for pure hw t & L, pixel shading version 1.4, vertex shading 1.4, and all kinds of other effects. Beat out my geforce 2 so bad it makes it look like a dust mite compared to a table.(well that is using a bit of sarcasim, but close to there.
Summary: Here are the scores from guru3d.com testing video cards in 3D mark 2001, as u can see the Radon 9500 beats Geforce 4 TI 4600. 3D Mark 2001 SE Pro 1024x768 1280x1024 1600x1200 GeForce4 MX 440 @ AGP4x 6096 4844 4014 GeForce4 MX 440 @ AGP8x 6099 4893 4045 Radeon 9000 Pro AGP8x 7310 5854 4556 GeForce3 Ti 500 8147 6787 5578 GeForce4 Ti 4200 64 MB 9774 7960 6511 GeForce4 Ti 4600 10827 9000 7525 Radeon 9500 Pro 10743 8940 7246 Radeon 9700 11693 10175 8742 Radeon 9700 Pro 12137...
Summary: Can't afford that Radeon 9700 Pro9($...-ish), but want to feel the DirectX 9 love? This is hands down the card for you. This card was created to compete directly with NVidia's Geforce4 Ti4200($...-ish), but with full Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering this card will even beat the Ti4600($...-ish). This card has everything the Radeon 9700 Pro has, just in smaller quantities.
Summary: Probably the best bang for the buck of any gaming chip out there as of 10/03, especially if you plan on using it with all the features turned on. nVida GF4 Ti4600 will beat it with AA turned off but you'll also be paying more for less I had a geforce3 TI200 before this card and my 3d mark score was 5500. Popped this card in and ran 3dmark and it bumped it up to almost 8500!! I love this card.
