    Albatron GF4 Ti4280


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Albatron started as a new company not too long ago - a little less than two years to approximate. The company took a step into the overclocking community with their motherboards and video cards and surprised everyone. True that they can't be found as the top overclocking choice for motherboard or video card, but they come pretty darn close. Being the underdog they are, they've developed quite a reputation for themselves. My first experience with Albatron was with their PX845E Pro II. I was able to overclock higher and with better stability than the well known Epox 4G4A+. I sure was impressed. My next step was the Albatron KX400+ Pro. I love this board. I'm still using it as of now. Today, I have my hands on the Albatron Geforce 4 Ti4280 (Ti4200 with AGP 8x support) 128MB video card for review. How well can this baby perform? Let's take a look.



    Specification Sheet

    Ti4200-8X Chipset Features
    1. AGP 8X
     Provides double the bandwidth of AGP 4X2.1GB/sec. vs. 1.1BG/sec. AGP 8X enables more complex models and detailed textures, creating richer and more lifelike environments. Uninterrupted data flow allows for smoother video streaming and faster, more seamless game play.
     
    2. nfiniteFX II Engine
     The NVIDIA nfiniteFX II Engine incorporates dual programmable Vertex Shaders, faster Pixel Shaders and 3D textures. The nfiniteFX II Engine gives developers the freedom to program a virtually infinite number of custom special effects to create true-to-life characters and environments.
     
    3. Accuview Antialiasing (AA)
     The Accuview Antialiasing subsystem with advanced multisampling hardware delivers full-scene antialiased quality at performance levels never before seen.
     
    4. Lightspeed Memory Architecture II
     LMA II boosts effective memory bandwidth by up to 300%. Radical new technologies including Z-occlusion culling, fast Z-clear, and auto pre-charge effectively multiply the memory bandwidth to ensure fluid frame rates for the latest 3D and 2D games and applications.
     
    5. nView Display Technology
     The nView hardware and software technology combination delivers maximum flexibility for multi-display options, and provides unprecedented end-user control of the desktop experience. nView allows end-users to select any combination of multiple displays, including digital flat panels, analog CRTs, and TVs, and to modify the display properties using an intuitive software interface.

    AGP 8x Differences

    Geforce 4 Ti4200 AGP 8x: 
    Vertices per Second:113 Million
    Fill Rate:4 Billion AA Samples/Sec.
    Operations per Second:1.03 Trillion
    Memory Bandwith:8GB/sec.
    Maximum Memory:128MB

    Geforce 4 Ti4200: 
    Vertices per Second:113 Million
    Fill Rate:4 Billion AA Samples/Sec.
    Operations per Second:1.03 Trillion
    Memory Bandwith:up to 8GB/sec.
    Maximum Memory:128MB

    As you can see from the technical data that the Geforce 4 Ti4200 with AGP 8x is not really that much faster than a regular Geforce 4 Ti4200.  From our man SPeeD's ARTICLE on the theoretical data of AGP 8x, you can see that it doesn't make much difference...or at least not yet.  I believe good drivers could give it potential.
